Don’t let trends dictate where you should have your honeymoon. After all, it’s one of the most significant trips you’ll ever take. So, don’t crumble under pressure and book Hawaii if you don’t care about the beach and don’t opt for Paris if you don’t like crowds. In order to have the best honeymoon that will perfectly fit your lifestyle, here’s a little guide that will make any couple pick the right destination.
Lapland for introverts
If all you want to do is get away from all the hustle and bustle of the city and just spend your honeymoon snuggled up with your partner, check out Finland. Booking a private igloo or a room in a historic manor in the middle of the Finnish wilderness is every introvert’s idea of a perfect vacation. You’ll get to enjoy the starry sky and catch a glimpse of the elusive Northern Lights while staying toasty in your little love nest. If you opt for leaving your igloo, there are reindeer sled rides, woodland safaris and amazing skiing excursions that will spice up your getaway.
Rio for party animals
If you don’t want your wedding celebration to stop just yet, fly to Rio de Janeiro and continue your party! This lively city is full of wild nightclubs, dance parties and party beaches, so you can dance your heart out until morning. Plus, there’s Rio Carnival in February, which is something no party lover can miss.
Bora Bora for beach lovers
If all you want to do on your honeymoon is catch a tan, sip delicious cocktails and freshen up with an occasional dip in the ocean, consider Bora Bora as your destination. It’s blessed with gorgeous blue lagoons, lux resorts and colorful coral reefs that will offer a perfect getaway after the commotion around the wedding. But, when you get tired of basking at the beach, you can also embark on an island adventure, scuba dive or go on a jungle safari trip.
Sydney for spa addicts
If you’re looking for a city that will provide you with all types of relaxing and invigorating spa experiences yet still give you plenty of amazing things to do and see outside of your resort, look no further than Sydney. For instance, you can stay in the Eastern Suburbs and get ready for an amazing spa experience at The Botanica Vaucluse that will have all your senses thoroughly occupied. After you’re finished with your specialist consultation, you’ll start your facial, massage and holistic therapy. When you’re thoroughly relaxed and pampered, grab a dinner at amazing The Botanica Vaucluse restaurant among the herbs and spices and rejuvenate your body from the inside as well. It will give you enough strength to tackle sightseeing before you return to your spa for round two of pampering.
Tibet for spiritual souls
If you need a destination that will allow you to get your Zen back and recuperate, book a trip to Tibet. Touring the land of Dalai Lama will bring plenty of meditation opportunities yet give you a taste of adventure as well. You can stroll down the busy streets, visit monasteries and practice mindfulness at Norbulingka Garden. No matter what you do, you’ll come back home full of energy to start your life together.
San Sebastian for foodies
There’s a big possibility you didn’t even hear about this little beach town in northern Spain, but San Sebastian has one of the best and most diverse foodie scenes. Even though it has under 200,000 inhabitants, it’s home to not one but two of the top 30 restaurants in the world. But, that’s not all! There are whopping seven other Michelin-star-rated places in San Sebastian that will simply blow you away with their culinary offer. If you’re on a budget, you don’t have to splurge. Try any of the amazing pintxos bars and you’ll be overwhelmed with flavor for an affordable price.
Florence for artists
Art lovers really can’t pick a better destination than Florence. It’s the city of Brunelleschi’s towering dome, of Michelangelo’s David, of Botticelli’s Venus and Da Vinci’s Annunciation—the concentration of high art in Florence is staggering. But, when you aren’t touring the galleries and museums, you can stroll down the Boboli Gardens or sample Italian gelato.
No matter where you end up, you will probably have a blast on your honeymoon as long as you’re together. But, picking a good destination will make your trip even more magical!
