Mostly As
You are an adventurer. Like you, your honeymoon should be fast paced and full of excitement. Although you love your downtime while you’re on holidays you know how to make the most of it. So why don’t you go somewhere that has the same taste of adventure you do? Consider heading to Machu Picchu for a trek around the Inca trails. See the majestic ancient ruins of the Inca civilization in the middle of the Andes mountains. If you are also a bit of an animal lover you can go on a cruise from there, around the Galapagos Islands to see some of the most unusual creatures and birds on the planet.

Mostly Bs

What you need for your honeymoon is a nice relaxing holiday. This is a time for you and your partner to completely indulge. The ideal place for you is undoubtedly Bora Bora. Can you think of anything more relaxing than waking up to see crystal blue waters surrounding your over water bungalow. Hire a “Vaitape”-  a two seater buggie to go around the island and maybe even go snorkeling in the lagoon. Alternatively just sun bathe and enjoy the beautiful views together.

Mostly Cs
You love history and culture so you should go to somewhere that has an abundance of both. Consider beautiful Prague. Prague is as picturesque as it is incredibly rich in culture. Sit in a belle-epoque inspired cafe as you and your partner people watch. The city square is often alive with  live performers and music. Explore the beautiful churches or discover the contemporary art scene at the Dox gallery.

Mostly Ds
The perfect holiday for you is one where you can get back to nature. Try beautiful Mauritius. This place is truly a slice of paradise! Take a sea trip to see the dolphins and go diving amongst the extensive barrier reef and ship wrecks to experience the incredible marine life. Take a stroll in the Pamplemousses Botanical Gardens best known for its lilly pond filled with Amazonian lilies. If you are really brave go walk with the lions and cheetahs at Casela Nature and Leasure Park. Alternately go trekking in the Moka Mountains or simply enjoy the stunning white sand beaches. It will be an amazing trip you will remember forever.

Norway is famous for its Fjords, The Northern Lights and Vikings. This beautiful and picturesque country is a wonderful honeymoon option, particularly for couples who love the great outdoors. Oslo is the capital of Norway and much like all of Scandinavia, is an incredibly cosmopolitan city filled with many a cultural delight. However, when travelling in Norway, do as the Norwegians do and get out of the city and explore what their beautiful landscape has to offer.

COMMENT

A honeymoon in Copenhagen Denmark is certainly worth considering. Denmark is the most affordable Scandinavian country. As the only Scandinavian country connected to mainland Europe, it also has the most temperate climate, similar to cities like London and Amsterdam. If you’re a music lover, Denmark could be the perfect destination for you as it has a non-stop calendar of over 100 festivals all throughout the year. Likewise, if you’re a foodie, then Denmark should be at the top of your list as Copenhagen has more michelin star restaurants than anywhere else in Scandinavia.

Things to do

Copenhagen is a cosmopolitan city with plenty of cultural things to do.

  • Take a stroll around the famous Tivoli Gardens – a popular amusement park and gardens.
  • No trip to Cophenhagen should be without a visit to The Little Mermaid, the statue that commemorates the famous fairytale by Hans Christian Andersen.

  • A must see on your visit to Copenhagen is a trip to Christiania, a freetown that leads a commune like existence.
  • Take a leisurely canal tour and see the city from a different perspective.
  • Hire a free bike and explore the city in your own way – you never know what you’ll come across!

Where to eat

When it comes to food, standards are high in Denmark, so you’ll struggle to have a bad meal! For something truly special, look no further than Noma. In order to get a spot in this michelin starred restaurant, you will have to book in advance – but you won’t be disappointed. Expect a creative and modern interpretation on classic Scandinavian cuisine. Alternatively, try Pony, which is a more relaxed, bistro-style restaurant offering contemporary culinary delights.
