Honeymoons with touch of adventure

If the thought of lazing on a sun drenched beach with nothing to do leaves you cold, if you'd rather be white water rafting down the Zambezi than sipping cocktails by the pool, or if the prospect of holing up in a grass thatched bungalow seems less love nest and more cabin fever...maybe an adventure honeymoon is the answer.

Luxury Honeymoon Vacation Ideas by Month

Our travel experts can offer ideas around the season of your wedding to help you discover destinations at their very best. Rest assured we've got you covered all year round, from relaxing luxury beach honeymoons in the Indian Ocean to intrepid safaris in Africa.

Beach Holiday, The Caribbean
Honeymoons in January

A honeymoon in January is not only a fabulous opportunity to escape the winter – it is also one of the best times of year to visit the Caribbean, the Indian Ocean, and parts of Australasia. If you'd rather embrace the winter, January is a great month for a ski honeymoon in the Alps! Our specialists can recommend destinations and itineraries that work best for a honeymoon in January.

Pool, Adler Mountain Lodge
Honeymoons in February

For those craving some winter sun on their honeymoon, there's plenty on offer in February, as well as fabulous skiing in the Alps and Canada. Malaysia, Thailand, and Cambodia are all wonderful, as well as South Africa. East Africa is great for safaris at this time – or for gorgeous African beaches, Zanzibar is a good choice. In the west, there's the Caribbean and parts of South America. February is also when you can experience Rio's carnival – we can even arrange your carnival tickets for you.

Couples Holiday, Indian Ocean
Honeymoons in March

If you prefer balmy climes at this time of year, a honeymoon in March is the perfect opportunity to visit the Maldives and Sri Lanka as they are in their prime season, as well as plenty of South East Asia, including Malaysia and Vietnam. Japan is a treat in late March, too, as this is when you can see the cherry blossom in all its glory – an omen of good fortune and an emblem of love.

Esencia
Honeymoons in April

For a honeymoon in the sun, Mauritius and the Seychelles are good choices, as well as the Caribbean and parts of Central America. Further south, Chile is full of potential adventures and exotic sights. In South East Asia, Indonesia's blissful islands are waiting to be discovered while Thailand celebrates New Year from 13-15 April at the Songkran festival.

Annandale - New Zealand
Honeymoons in May

If you're looking to go on your honeymoon in May, the European continent is warming up nicely. South East Asia is beautiful at this time of year, as well as Australasia. China and Japan are other exciting options or, for African beaches and amazing blue waters, Mozambique is a good choice in May.

Amalfi Coast, Italy
Honeymoons in June

For a honeymoon in Europe, Italy is incredibly romantic and beautiful at this time of year. Beyond Europe, there is all kinds of wonderful wildlife to experience in June. You could head to Western Australia for whale sharks or to Madagascar for its myriad of extraordinary species of animal and plant. Elsewhere in Africa, this is prime game-viewing season in Zambia and Malawi. Then there's the Caribbean and the adventure of Colombia and Peru, to name just a few more exciting destinations for a honeymoon in June.

Complimentary Spa Treatment at Bumi Hills
Honeymoons in July

If you are looking to honeymoon in July, the Mediterranean is perhaps at its best, before parts become a little too hot for some in August. Couples can find romance in Italy's cities, and the endless beaches across the Med. If a tropical desert island is what you're looking for, many parts of South East Asia are perfect in July, or, if you want natural spectacles, head to Africa. The great migration is full flow, with wildebeest, zebras, and Thomson's gazelle making their annual arrival in the luscious grasslands of the Maasai Mara, where the big five have been waiting for months.

Remote Greek Islands
Honeymoons in August

For a honeymoon in Europe, you could head to Cyprus or Spain – or to Rome, which comes alive for six weeks of the summer, with memorable live music from opera to rock, open-air film screens, hundreds of galleries, and Cabaret festivals. On the other side of the world, Australia has plenty to offer couples and Africa is in its game-viewing prime, while in Chile you can ski!

Complimentary Experience at Sasaab
Honeymoons in September

September is a great time to go on honeymoon, with plenty on offer. If you want to head east, Dubai and Oman are wonderful in September, while Japan and China are also in their prime. As well as offering fabulous game viewing, Africa's ocean waters are equally as enticing. This is the best time of year to spot humpback whales in Tanzania and to go diving in Mozambique. South America also has lots to recommend itself, including skiing in Chile and all kinds of adventures in Argentina.

Taj Mahal, India
Honeymoons in October

For those looking to spot wildlife on their honeymoon, the migration is still taking place in East Africa, making for some incredible sights. In Mozambique, it's a good time to spot humpback whales and go diving in the corals. The islands of the Indian Ocean also lure many sun-seekers around this time. From eating sun-ripened mango in Rajasthan to snorkeling in Mauritius or cruising down the Nile in Egypt, there's a rich choice of things to do and places to see if you are going on honeymoon in October.

Baobab trees, Madagascar
Honeymoons in November

If you're seeking a rich cultural experience on your honeymoon, consider the Ganga festival, which takes place along the great river Ganges in India as the city of Varanasi pays tribute to the river that has been its lifeline for centuries. But there's plenty more to love in November. White sands, green peaks, and emerald waters in the Caribbean. Surfing hot spots, windswept prairies, and tabletop mountains along the Brazilian coast. Ruined palaces, zebu markets, and whale-watching in Madagascar. November is a fine time for an adventurous honeymoon.

Baja California, Mexico
Honeymoons in December

If you are keen to get some winter sun on your honeymoon before the festive season or fancy spending your first Christmas together somewhere remote, there is a huge choice of destinations that are fabulous in December. You could opt for hot, white sand and deep azure lagoons in Thailand, sailing in the Caribbean, plunging gorges and thick jungles in Mexico, or misty forests, winding rivers, and majestic volcanoes in Costa Rica.
