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.
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.
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.
It really is one of the best honeymoon destinations to visit if you love the great outdoors.
2.) Faroe Islands
The Faroe Islands are a little unknown when it comes to honeymooning but it’s easily one of the best honeymoon destinations to visit if you want something a little different.
Don’t forget to hike to the lake that almost falls off the cliffs and explore the capital which is home to one of the oldest government meeting spots in all the world.
3.) Cinque Terre, Italy
Cinque Terre is one of those gorgeous regions that totally stunning. It’s easily one of the best honeymoon destinations to visit if you love Italy.
Spend your honeymoon exploring the cobbled winding streets, basking in the Italian sunshine and eating mountains of gelato on the shores.
4.) The Fjords of Norway
The Fjords in Norway are known the world over for their incredible beauty but it might not spring to mind instantly when you think of a honeymoon break.
It really is one of the best honeymoon destinations to visit in Norway.
5.) Bali, Indonesia
Bali is an Indonesian island that many of us will have heard of (or at least looked at in green envy wondering why we aren’t there).
Now, although you might have thought about the stunning beaches and gorgeous waters as a honeymoon spot, you might not have thought about the gorgeous volcanic and lush areas in and around the inland town of Ubud.
Explore the nearby temples, relax in the beautiful beaches or really enjoy your post-wedding honeymoon with some incredible hikes. It’s easily one of the best honeymoon destinations to visit if you want something a little more tropical.
Plus, it can be a mix of relaxation and more energetic activities, too.
6.) Wales, United Kingdom
Wales is not usually thought of as a honeymoon destination, but there are some really beautiful places that are well worth seeing on a trip.
If you’re looking for an alternative honeymoon, consider renting a VW Campervan, or even camping (yes, you’re allowed to camp on your honeymoon).
After all, your trip should reflect what both of you really enjoy!
Head over to Pembrokeshire National Park in the West of Wales and visit the Gower Peninsular in the South of Wales for sure. Plus, be sure to explore the Italian village of Portmeirion when visiting Snowdonia. It’s easily one of the best honeymoon destinations to visit in Wales.
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.
8.) Cotswolds, England
For anyone that has not visited England, you’ll want to take a visit to the Cotswolds.
Imagine rolling hills, tiny little hamlets and cottages that are so lovely you won’t want to leave. If you’re looking for a unique experience, considering hiring a Morgan classic car and discover the whole region.
A picturesque way to spend your honeymoon and easily one of the best honeymoon destinations to visit in England.
9.) Kruger National Park, South Africa
If you’re looking for an adventure Honeymoon then think about a safari in South Africa’s Kruger National Park.
Spend your mornings with the local pride, following in the footsteps of elephants and keep your eyes peeled for a cheetah or two!
In the afternoons, sit back and relax in the beautiful savannah where your hotel will be situated. It’s the perfect mix of adventure and indulgence.
Perfect for a honeymoon getaway.
