Iceland is all about romantic hot springs, the stunning northern lights, fjords, waterfalls, cave exploring, adventure sports and hiking. It is not your typical lie on a beach and relax honeymoon spot but not everyone wants that.
Choose from luxury hotel stays or warm winter self catering cottages. Don’t miss out on seeing Þingvellir National Park, Geyser Area, Gullfoss Waterfall and the Blue Lagoon.
2. Samode Safari Lodge, India
A game reserve boasting spellbinding views is one of Bandhavgarh, India’s well-hidden lodges. Perfect for a honeymoon couple wanting a harmonious blend of peaceful wilderness and a fun filled Indian jungle adventure; the nature walks, safari experiences and open air candle lit dinners that await, provide just that all sealed and delivered with rustic styled luxury.
It is a big country so we suggest you do a tour. Argentina certainly has it all: glaciers, waterfalls, big cities, mountains and of course the wonderful romantic Argentinean tango.
Keep things interesting with a top class hotel in Buenos Aires followed by an eco camp in the beautiful Torres del Paine National Park that takes glamping to a totally new level.
4. Sanctuary Retreats Safari Tour, Botswana
Always wanted to do something amazing and 100% totally different to the usual beach-based honeymoons? This is it. Imagine having a hot bath under the stars, relaxing in an exclusive rustic chic lodge, walking through the bush with orphaned elephants or cruising the Okavango Delta on a canoe. It’s not for the faint hearted but we do promise that it is definitely different.
5. Yangon, Myanmar
Formally known as Rangoon and the capital Myanmar also formally known as Burma, Yangon still dazzles tourists with its ornate gold leaf Buddhist shrines, lakes, waterfalls and handicraft street markets.
6. The Fuselage Home, Costa Rica
The refurbished vintage 1965 Boeing 727 might be the most exclusive hotel suite in Costa Rica but it’s worth every penny for those yearning for a honeymoon adventure worthy of the big screen.
Perched on a 50 foot pedestal, the 727 offers stunning views of the jungle and ocean, exquisite teak wood furniture from Java, private terrace and dining area and a small kitchenette. It is exquisitely perfect for the jet-setting couple.
7. La Rioja region, Spain
Spanish wine, culture and gastronomy are famous worldwide, although there is nothing quite like first hand experience. With great weather from May right through to September, what could be better than a wine and food tasting honeymoon escapade around Spain’s best known wine making region, La Rioja? We’ll drink to that!
8. Hong Kong, China
A busy city by day and an even busier one by night, there is always something to do here and adventures to be discovered. Dedicate at least a day to go and see the impressive Tian Tan Buddha but get there early to avoid long lines. If you are in the mood for something daring, we suggest the glass bottom cable car.
9. The Ice Hotel, Sweden
The Ice Hotel certainly has the novelty factor with handcrafted ice suites complete with heated relaxation areas, sauna, en-suite bathrooms and sleeping bags made for two. If this gives you the chills, there are warmer Scandinavian and Nordic chalets with heated tiled floors to choose from.
Winter months revolve around night viewings of the Northern lights, snowmobile tours, sauna rituals, dog sledding, ice sculpting, horseback riding and skiing. Summer months offer day hikes, sights of the midnight sun, paddling and cycling expeditions, historic tours and the cultural sauna experience. The ice chapel is a great place for intimate destination weddings too!
10. The Hanging Gardens of Bali
This is as serene as it sounds; a true jungle getaway. Close the door on social media, turn off the phone and leave the emails at home, instead step out each morning into rice fields and river valleys. Enjoy a sensational dinner for two in a traditional Balinese boat, learn the art of Balinese cooking, and tour local village, markets and nearby temples.
