Whistler: a great choice for a romantic winter honeymoon
Although many people envision honeymooning on white sandy beaches, with palm trees and clear blue water, this doesn't have to be the only option for newlyweds keen to have a fabulous getaway.
At this time of year in particular, winter sports destinations are a great choice for those keen for a bit of adventure on their honeymoon. And whether you're seasoned skiers or looking to hit the slopes for the first time, there are many great options available for those wishing to pack scarves and ski jackets instead of swimming costumes and flip-flops.
One top destination for keen skiers is Whistler in Canada, which was recently described by the Huffington Post as one of the world's most romantic winter honeymoon locations.
The news provider described it as a perfect choice for beginners, as there are a variety of lesson options available for first-timers. You can choose from multi-day adult camps, backcountry adventures, mogul clinics or even 'Skiing with an Olympian' offers that set you up with some of the world's best skiers as tutors.
While you're in Whistler, if you can tear yourself away from the slopes, one of the other top attractions you should check out is the Whistler Blackcomb Peak2Peak gondola, which was recently named by Business Insider magazine as one of the 100 trips to take in your lifetime.
This record-breaking gondola boasts the longest unsupported span in the world, at 1.88 miles, while at 1,427 feet over the valley floor below, it's also the highest cable transport of its kind and offers spectacular views as it ferries skiers from the peaks of the Whistler and Blackcomb mountains.
Other activities named as 'must-dos' by the local tourist board include taking a dog sledding tour of the landscape or relaxing during a horse-drawn sleigh ride. During the journey you'll enjoy hot chocolate and keep warm under layers of blankets, so this could be the perfect romantic addition to a winter honeymoon in Whistler.
And if you choose great luxury accommodation such as the Four Seasons - which has been awarded a prestigious AAA Five Diamond Award - you will be able to relax in comfort after a tiring day on the slopes.
