You’re getting hitched! Congratulations! Mazel tov! The question has been popped and you’re both almost going to run down that aisle! It’s a pretty exciting time that’s filled with lots of emotions, memories and a pinch lot of stress. This is exactly why I wanted to share some of the best honeymoon destinations to visit for every kind of traveller. 

You see, the logistics of planning a wedding; and making it all ‘happen’ is totally time-consuming, stressful and often expensive. This is without even thinking about the honeymoon.

It’s the same for all of us, we hear honeymoon and we instantly think of the popular honeymooners’ dream destinations; Italy, The Caribbean, Sri Lanka but there are so many incredible places you might not have even thought about.

This is why I wanted to share some of the best honeymoon destinations to visit that are popular but also might be a little less run of the mill.

Best Honeymoon Destinations To Visit

Take a look at some of the very best honeymoon destinations to visit. Congratulations! 

1.) Alberta, Canada

It’s easy to think of beaches, warm weather and sipping cocktails when we think of honeymoons but your honeymoon has to reflect what you and your partner want. 

Truth be told, your honeymoon can be anything you want; and it really should reflect you. If that want is nature, you should definitely head to Alberta in Canada. It’s one incredible province that’s totally beautiful to visit. 

Once here, make sure to explore Banff and the Icefields parkway region.

Oh, and don’t forget to visit Jasper for the beautiful Maligne Canyon, too. If it’s a little luxury you’re after, head across to Lake Louise and check into the Fairmont. It’s probably the most iconic hotel in the region and you can explore the whole area from here.

Maldives is a pretty well-trodden path when it comes to honeymooning but don’t let that put you off or think that you can’t have some unique experiences.

The Atolls of the Maldives are truly idyllic places.

Swimming with completely wild whale sharks, turtles and even sharks is something that most of us don’t get to experience usually. Find an island that you love, choose a place.

Although the Maldives can be a little pricey, check sites like Deal Checker that actually search for some of the best prices for the individual dates you choose.

It’s a great way to save a pretty penny, making your holiday budget stretch.
