10 Adventurous Honeymoon Destinations

Honeymoons and romantic getaways do not need to mean simply lying around on the beach. If you are more of an adventurous traveler there are going to be plenty of options for honeymoon destinations for you. Even typical beach destinations known for being all-inclusive like Jamaica, St Lucia, or Bora Bora can be very adventurous if you want to tailor your honeymoon to be like that. Here are a few of our favorite adventure honeymoon destinations.

Colorado

Colorado Honeymoon

Colorado is a great place to go for those who love the outdoors. There are plenty of hiking and biking trails, as well as opportunities for white water rafting and kayaking. In the winter you can go skiing or snowboarding and in the summer there are plenty of opportunities for fishing, camping, and horseback riding. It is one of the few places in the US where you can go dog sledding and there are so many fun adventures you can go on together like snowmobiling in the backcountry or exploring backcountry skiing.

We love visiting Colorado and staying at an all-inclusive dude ranch like Vista Verde Ranch in Steamboat Springs.

Australia

Australia is home to some of the most beautiful and diverse landscapes in the world. There is something for everyone here, from beaches to rainforests to deserts. You can go diving, snorkeling, surfing, and kayaking on the many beautiful beaches, or go hiking and camping in the national parks. If you are looking for an adventure honeymoon destination that is a little bit off the beaten path, then Australia is definitely it.

Alaska

Sure you can explore Alaska on a relaxing cruise and on tour busses inland, but it can also be an outdoorsy couples’ dreamland. You can hike, bike, kayak, and raft your way through the state on guided tours or make your own arrangements and explore at your own pace. You can also go fishing for salmon and halibut, dogsledding, or flightseeing to view the incredible glaciers. There is no shortage of activities to keep you busy in Alaska. A stay at Denali Backcountry Lodge will put you deep into the park in a secluded area. When I went there I found myself face to face with a caribou as I hiked around the area which was an unforgettable experience. On the same trip, we saw orcas and glaciers on a day cruise in the Kenai Fjords National Park.

What people say about us

We worked with Mike to plan our perfect honeymoon in Greece — he was amazing the whole way through and put together a trip we will cherish for our lifetime.

He was thoughtful with our suggestions, and provided some of his own without every pushing us. He stayed within our budgetary means but made it feel like we had a budget twice the size. 

Alex

Dan and Michelle were such a joy to work with! They really made our trip and cruise successful. Based on our needs they were able to help us identify and schedule what side trips and activities would best suit our interests.

After this trip I will be using a travel agent for future vacations…just can’t wait for the next one they help us plan!

Honeymoon Always has been fantastic- our trips were 1000% better because of their help. The first time we used them we wanted to have a fun trip with some cultural experiences, good food, not too packed, and for a good price. It was fantastic and now we've used them for several trips in Europe, Central America, and the Caribbean. Each trip was so different but they were able to make each one special and unique to our needs.
