When it comes to honeymoons, location is everything. A beautiful, scenic backdrop is a must. Fortunately, there’s no shortage of beautiful locations to visit. If you’re more on the adventurous side, there’s no reason to compromise. Adventure and beauty go hand in hand in some places, and here are some great examples.
1. The Island of Hokkaido
If you’re going to Japan, there’s no reason you wouldn’t stop by the northernmost part of the island complexes. Formerly known as Ezo, the island of Hokkaido is a popular destination for adventurous couples who want to enjoy the full skiing package. There are few locations that have conditions as perfect as Hokkaido.
Every winter, professional skiers flock toward Niseko, the most popular resort on the island. The whole area gets consistent snowfall and the slopes are pristine pretty much all winter.
2. The Waters of Rangiroa
This tiny island in French Polynesia is an adventurer’s dream come true. Rangiroa is the home to the second largest atoll in the world, making it a diver’s paradise. Clear water and beautiful beaches aren’t the only things it has to offer, however.
What you’ll see underwater is the real catch. There you’ll find tropical fish galore. You can see everything from stingrays to black-tipped sharks along the way. What better way to spend your honeymoon than going face-to-face with some of nature’s most beautiful underwater creations?
3. Take to the Skies in Cappadocia, Turkey
It’s not the most famous travel location in the world, but boy is it a unique choice. This medium-sized community located in Turkeys’ Anatolia region has become quite popular for couples who want the perfect honeymoon in the sky.
Every morning, hundreds of hot air balloons take to the skies and create a picture-perfect view for ground and balloon viewers. What better way to spend your honeymoon than drinking Turkish tea hundreds of feet in the air?
4. Chill in Antarctica
There’s lots of snow involved, but it’s not exactly the ideal place for skiers. There’s a different kind of charm to this cold continent. Antarctica is an unorthodox but thrilling place to have your honeymoon if you have a couple of weeks to spare. Take a trip to the coolest place on Earth and hang out with the penguins and seals. Very few people have stepped foot in Antarctica, but only because it’s quite the adventure to even get there!
This might be a place for you if you fancy yourselves, explorers. A trip through the arctic circle might take a week or so, but you won’t find a better place to cuddle up when it’s cold out. Just make sure you double-up on the warm clothes.
5. Great Barrier Reef, Australia
There’s no reason to stick to the surface during your honeymoon. Sometimes the deep blue sea is where it’s at. When it comes to beautiful underwater locations, the Great Barrier Reef takes the cake. Located in Australia, the barrier reef is home to the most colorful and varied coral structures that are a wonder to look at. It’s not called one of the natural wonders of the world for nothing.
Seeing it up-close means you’re going to need some diving lessons beforehand. Going that deep underwater will probably require quality scuba equipment as well. Gear up and prepare for one of the greatest sights out there.
6. The Galápagos Islands
If getting up-close with nature is on your honeymoon bucket list, there’s one place you’re sure to visit. Off the coasts of Ecuador, the Galápagos Islands are home to some of the most varied wildlife you can find anywhere. There are no natural predators there, so animals aren’t scared to hang out with humans.
Walk with the same tortoises Darwin observed when he was studying evolution. You’ll also find penguins and seals all over the place. There’s no shortage of interesting animals to look at.
Going on your honeymoon is the best opportunity to visit any place you’ve ever fancied. There’s no better time to cross places off your bucket list. Deciding where to go can seem a bit overwhelming, but you have to start somewhere! Whether you’re aiming for the skies or the most extreme conditions, there’s a place for you somewhere out there. Start with some of these gorgeous locations and you won’t be disappointed.
