Unique Honeymoon Destinations You Won’t Forget

Unique Honeymoon Destinations
A recent study by The Knot and the Wedding Channel found of the 1.4 million couples marrying, 15 percent fled to Mexico for the honeymoon and another 12 percent traveled to Jamaica. But there’s no law stating a honeymoon destination has to be warm, especially if your romance is hot enough to burn brightly just about anywhere. Consider one of these unique destinations to celebrate your nuptials.

Book the Coolest Honeymoon on Earth

The ICEHOTEL in Jukkasjarvi, Sweden is above the Arctic circle. You’ll stay in a room made of ice complete with reindeer skin bedding and artistically sculpted pieces.

The Engelberg-Titlis Igloo Village in Engelberg, Sweden is another option. Imagine blogging about your honeymoon from inside an igloo. A resort carved from ice complete with a hot tub and fondue; the temperature outside won’t keep things from heating up inside your igloo.

Rugged, Cold and Dazzling Lights

Want another sub-zero honeymoon? Rugged adventure seekers can try a sled dog racing trip in Karasjok, Norway and at night stare up at amazing displays of the Northern Lights. This honeymoon adventure starts in a rustic lodge. From there, embark on your journey. Adventures last from a few days to two weeks. During winter months, combine the trip with a stay at an igloo hotel in Alta. Visit to find more information on booking a trip.

Instead of sharing bland anecdotes from a typical honeymoon like, “Dear, do you remember when that waiter served us a Mai Tai instead of a Martini?” You’ll have more interesting stories to tell like, “Honey, do you remember when our dog sled slat broke and I had to repair it with a tree limb?”

Roughing It Stateside

If you don’t want to go overseas, there are plenty of alternative honeymoons in the U.S. A trip to popular Yosemite National Park is the perfect way for nature lovers to celebrate a new marital bond. Breathtaking waterfalls and fresh air await you.

A trip to Acadia National Park in Maine offers brilliant vistas over a rock strewn, Atlantic coastline.

More experienced hikers and backpackers can hike through the backcountry of the Grand Canyon and down to the Colorado River. It’s an experience you won’t forget. Nearly untouched, this wilderness adventure provides a lifetime of memories. This is a demanding hike with few trail markings; hikers must possess expert trail-finding skills or hire a guide. You will also need the proper passes before you go.

Download the National Park Service’s app on your T-mobile smartphone or visit their Find a Park Web page to find park information, activities to suit your interests and info on booking your next trip.

Volunteer Your Honeymoon

A volunteer honeymoon is for couples who love making a difference in the world. There are several options, from a Habitat for Humanity trip to a research safari in Africa. Joy Tour & Travel can help find trips perfect for conscientious honeymooners and you can search different opportunities by date, activity or location. Lending a hand to a cause is certain to start your marriage off on the right foot.

    Great post. I truly loved your post. I will continue to check back and read more of your work, as I am hoping to plan a trip to visit one day and will use some of your post as I guide.
