When you have just got married, there is nothing better than going on honeymoon for a romantic and relaxing break, somewhere warm where you can put your feet up and enjoy one another's company. However, not everyone enjoys that sort of holiday and some would prefer something a little more exciting. Here we look at three reasons why choosing an adventure holiday for your honeymoon could be the best decision you have ever made.
Adventure doesn't have to mean dangerous
You would not often put adventure holidays and a honeymoon in the same sentence, but adventure does not necessarily mean dangerous, and the level of adventure and activity would be up to you. Most people would probably not want to take part in activities such as rock climbing, bungee jumping or shark diving when they are on honeymoon, but there are many other less dangerous things that could still make your honeymoon an adventure. Chartering a boat and planning your own route, would still constitute an adventure, as would a honeymoon that involved cycling, driving or walking. These sorts of adventure holidays in Greece and other parts of the Mediterranean would make the perfect honeymoon, in terms of both location and weather.
Best of both worlds
If you are able to take at least two weeks for your honeymoon, then you could make one week the resting and relaxing one and dedicate the other week to adventure. That way you get the best of both worlds. The way round you choose to do it would be up to you. For example, you could choose to go to Africa and spend a week doing a safari, followed by a week on a beach. The same is true if you want to go diving on honeymoon. You could spend a week diving, then stay in the same place but spend the following week relaxing. Whether you opt for an adventure holiday in Greece or somewhere else in Europe, or of course go further afield to the Caribbean or the USA, it should always be possible to combine the adventure element with rest and relaxation but ultimately be together and enjoy each other’s company.
Making the most of it
The final reason for making your honeymoon an adventure holiday is that it might be the only chance you get. It may be that someone is paying for your honeymoon as a wedding present and this is not the sort of trip you could normally afford. That's all the more reason to make the most of it. Also, being able to take two weeks or more off work and do more or less anything is a rarity and even more so if you have children, so it's good to make the most of the opportunity for adventure while you can.
If this has inspired you to think again about what you want from your honeymoon, then make sure your partner agrees, then book something that will ensure that you start your lifetime of adventure with the adventure of a lifetime.
