Get that rush of adrenaline with our handpicked selection of the best honeymoon destinations for thrill seekers!
From the hectic city of Hanoi to the picturesque city of Hoi An, Vietnam is known for being a country of remarkable contrast. Cruise down the Mekong Delta or submerge yourself in history with a visit to the Cù Chi Tunnels. Visit the beautiful town of Sapa where epic scenery surrounds you and thick mist creates a majestic ambience. Take a trip East to Halong Bay where you can voyage through the limestone islands in your own private boat. Enjoy swimming in the turquoise waters and spend the night on one of the secluded islands, but watch out for monkeys, they aren’t as sweet as they look…
Hoi An is famed for being a beautiful, eccentric riverside town, the many lanterns dotted around the town create the perfect romantic setting. Phong Nha-Kẻ Bàng National Park sits nestled closer to the North of Vietnam. Surrounded by mountains and tropical forests, this place is famed for its number of unique caves as well as being known all around the world for being the current record holder for the world's largest cave.
South Africa is home to one of the best safari destinations in the world. The Kruger National Park and Sabi Sands Game Reserve together are the core of luxury safari holidays in Africa. These areas are some of the best places to view an array of wildlife, from rhinos to leopards to elephants, this would certainly be a honeymoon to remember.
Visit the Winelands in Cape Town where vast mountain views and wine land routes are arguably some of the best in the world. Why not give bungee jumping a go? The 216m Bloukrans Bridge is currently the highest commercial bridge bungee to exist. It is located along the picturesque Garden Route and is ultimately one of the most impressive bungee jumps in South Africa.
This beautiful country is a hot contender for one of the best places in the world to spend an unforgettable honeymoon. The combination of broad landscapes and breathtaking natural scenery make this a destination like no other. Visit the Coromandel Peninsula where you'll find pristine beaches and dense forests or take a trip to the stunning Milford sound, a lake so beautiful it will leave you speechless.
Why not try caving? Abseil 37 metres deep down into a tiny cylinder hole, only the start of a thrilling five-hour underground Black Abyss tour at Raukuri Cave. Give white water rafting a try along one of New Zealand’s powerful rivers. You can spend a day climbing the Franz Josef Glacier. Opt to hike for the day with specially designated equipment; this is for the true adventurer. If you want to experience the beauty of the glacier but don’t think you can quite manage a whole day of trekking, you can take a helicopter ride to the top followed by a two-hour guided tour among the ice caves.
Dubai is undoubtedly one of the best places in the world to sky dive, particularly over The Palm Jumeirah. View the stunning archipelago from 10,000ft in the sky and have a go at steering your parachute high above the azure waters below. If skydiving is a little too daring for you then experience the dune buggy safari instead. Buckle up and take in the thrill of being whizzed around the scenic sand dunes.
If you fancy something a little different, you can zip-line 90 metres above Dubai fountains. With nothing but air below your feet and a harness to keep you safe, this 3 minute thrill will give you stunning views of Dubai from a different angle.
Why not step outside the box and do something a little different for your first married days away? Start as you mean to go on and do something you will remember for the rest of your lives...
