For most couples, their honeymoon is just as big as the wedding day itself. It’s a romantic getaway that gives them the chance to celebrate their love and union in a private and intimate way. So there is no wonder that many couples choose to jet off to tropical islands and other beautiful destinations. But would you rather do something completely different? After all, sun bathing on the beach for a fortnight isn’t for everyone. If you would rather a more active honeymoon, you may want to say ‘I do’ to one of these awesome ideas.


Hiking To Machu Picchu
If you and your partner love history and hiking in equal doses, you will both be bowled over with a trip to Machu Picchu. This expansive Inca citadel in Peru is one of the few global landmarks that can be rightly described as ‘iconic’. The best time to book your trip to Machu Picchu is in November or April. This is out of the peak tourist season and each month is on either side of the rainy season. Most people choose to book a package trip to the site. This will include your guides who will lead you to the citadel.

Skiing
Sporty couples may be interested in a ski trip to celebrate their honeymoon. This is a great option for people who want to get away for an extended period. This honeymoon option can also be very practical as well, as it gives you chance to take part in some ski instructor courses. Some couples decide to take these courses if they fancy spending their winters out on the slopes making money!

Staycation
Money is tight for a lot of people right now. And that’s probably the main reason why many couples are choosing to go on a staycation for their honeymoon. But a staycation doesn’t have to be boring! You can easily liven it up by hiring a campervan and hitting the road! You’ll be able to explore your own country and can make up your itinerary as you go along. The world really is your oyster when you are exploring in a funky campervan! And as this option is fairly cheap, you can afford to stay on holiday for longer!

Backpacking In Thailand
Would you rather explore a completely different country and culture to your own? Then why not book some flight tickets to Thailand and go backpacking! Many young people go backpacking through this diverse country to soak up its excellent culture. And now more and more newlyweds are choosing to do just the same! There is so much to do in the country. You could simply lounge on the beach or go for a hike through the jungle. And let’s not forget about all the amazing cuisine that you will be able to sample!

There are hundreds of exciting honeymoon destinations that you could choose. These are just a few for starters. Hopefully, they’ve filled you with lots of inspiration and you’ll have an unforgettable time away!
