Cool Honeymoon Ideas For Adventurous Couples

Some people picture the ideal honeymoon as one spent alone together in a tropical paradise, with nothing to do but spend time together, lie on white sandy beaches and take romantic walks. For some couples though, this just sounds really boring! If you are looking for a honeymoon that combines not only the expected romantic elements but also some fun, activity and adventure, then there is a whole world out there full of cool things to do. If you are stuck for ideas and need some inspiration, however, here are some good ones:

Go Horseback Riding

Horseback riding is a great holiday idea as it manages to be both tranquil and relaxing, but also adventurous and fun. You don’t need to be an experienced rider to do it, and many organized riding vacations can include lessons if you are a complete beginner. You can choose horse riding holidays in all sorts of places, so whether you want to do it in Australia, the USA or somewhere like France you’ll have a wealth of choices, and organised packages mean that you don’t have to worry about anything – horses, riding gear and instructors will all be waiting for you on arrival, along with accommodation to suit your choices. If you don’t really like horses or horse riding, then you could do a similar holiday on bikes, again in just about any country you like the look of or somewhere closer to home.

Go Skiing

If the whole ‘white sandy beach’ scenario isn’t your thing at all, and you don’t really fancy riding around the countryside on four legs or two wheels either, then perhaps a winter sports holiday would give you the adventure you are looking for? Skiing, or if you prefer it, snowboarding, gives you a great opportunity to spend the day having fun and challenging yourself, and the evenings in a very romantic setting, perhaps snuggling up by the fire in a log cabin. Of course, skiing is seasonal so you will need to find a resort that suits the date of your wedding, but there are ski resorts in places as diverse as New Zealand, Canada and Italy, so you will have options.

Go Scuba Diving

A diving holiday is perfect for the couple who actually does want all of the tropical paradise stuff, but also wants something exciting to do while they are there. Learning to dive together can be a great experience, or, if you already have licenses, you can simply pick a place where you’d like to explore the underwater scenery and get going! Dive packages can mean you don’t need to take all your own gear with you and will have things like boats to dive sites included in your holiday. Some great choices in terms of destination include the Red Sea, Mexico, the Caribbean, the Maldives, and of course there is always the option of a once in a lifetime Great Barrier Reef honeymoon in Australia!

Your honeymoon doesn’t have to be all about romance and relaxation, and having fun and adventure as a couple can be a great start to a happy marriage!
