5 honeymoons for adventurous couples
While some people love nothing more than two weeks by the pool with a cocktail in hand, others may have something a little more adventurous in mind for their honeymoon. After all, your honeymoon is a chance to experience a once-in-a-lifetime destination or activity. To help you with your choice, here are five exciting places you must consider visiting if you want a memorable honeymoon…
Jungle trekking in Cuba
If you’re one of those adventurous couples who love the captivating feeling of being lost in the wilderness, then Cuba is a great place to indulge in jungle life without going too rural. You can take a day or two in the wilds of the jungle, there come back in time for nightclub salsa, accompanied by several Havana Club mojitos!
For that reason, a Cuban honeymoon is perfect for a mix of city and country. There are various places to try jungle trekking in Cuba. You can consider Topes de Collantes National Park, Salto del Caburni Trail, or Sierra Maestra among others, with the option of beach or city time afterwards to wind down.
Campervanning around Canada
Are you eager to visit as many places in Canada as possible during your honeymoon? If so, you might want to consider campervanning.
A tour by RV comes with added advantages of taking as much luggage as you want and visiting multiple destinations. The ability to pull up and camp will save you on accommodation costs, and will also guarantee maximum privacy. The flexibility to go pretty much anywhere, at any point, is tempting for many adventure fans. Just be sure to check to check distances on the map before setting off, as some places can take days to reach and terrain can go from 30 degree sunshine to the freezing snowy mountains in the space of a couple of hours.
Driving Route 66 in the US
If you prefer spending your honeymoon on the road, then driving the entire Route 66 is something you need to try. Your journey will start in Chicago in the north east of the US and end at the Pacific Ocean shores in California. It’s the most iconic drive on the globe for a reason!
The entire trip is 2,278miles long and usually takes 14 days to complete if you are comfortable driving 163 miles per day. Many people drive for around five hours every day to finish the trip within 14 days. You’ll be forgiven for stopping in Las Vegas for a honeymoon flutter…
Mountain biking in the Alps
Are you and your spouse fond of cycling? If yes, then there is no better place to enjoy your dream activity honeymoon than checking out the French Alps.
First, you will be spoilt for choice. Depending on your cycling ability, there are different tracks you can follow, ranging from amateur paths to tracks only the professionals will attempt. You can choose to ride in the parks or join the specialists in the mountains. In either case, the experience will be unforgettable! This is great for those couples who love a challenge.
If you’re the kind of couple that wants to achieve something incredible on their honeymoon, then why not take on the ultimate challenge by climbing Kilimanjaro? This one is reserved for the strong in body and mind, and plenty of training will be required.

You will also have a chance to see the world-famous wildlife by combining it with a safari for the best of both worlds.
