Dare to be different with our list of the best places and way to propose!
There’s nothing quite like floating up in the sky in a hot air balloon, it’s a special experience at the best of times. But couple that with a burnt orange sunset stretching as far as you can see, an elephant or two below and you’re good to go. Pop the champagne in the sky when you get that yes.
Few scenes say romance as much as lying under the stars together. Step it up a notch for this extra special occasion and travel to see the Northern Lights from the Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort in Finnish Lapland. Snuggling up in bed together as the Aurora Borealis float pink, green and blue in the sky above your warm and cosy igloo is surely the single most romantic thing you’ll ever do together. Pop the question now.
Stranded out to sea with nobody but each other (and the occasional waiter) your loved one will have eyes just for you. As the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean gently lap the soft white sand beneath your feet pluck up the courage to ask if they will make your paradise complete. We recommend The Baros Maldives for the perfectly designed dinner package.
Whether you’ve spent the last four days trekking the Inca trail to get there, or you’ve simply hopped on the bus, arriving at Machu Picchu for sunrise is one of the most spellbindingly magical experiences you will ever have. Make your partner’s memory of this moment all the more special by asking them to marry you at the foot of the sun gate, with the ancient Inca ruins and Andes Mountains below you.
Walking along lush rainforest pathways with vibrantly coloured butterflies surrounding you, peer out onto one of the waterfalls at Iguazu and feel like you’ve stepped straight into the Garden of Eden. Stand with the gushing water and a brilliant rainbow behind you and ask them to make this heavenly scene even more enchanting.
There is something very fairy tale about a walk through the woods. Choose a sunny spring morning and pack a rucksack with some champagne, then set off to make your own fairy tale come true. As you stroll, hand in hand and admiring the carpet of lavender bluebells, make an excuse to step ahead and hide around the next corner on one knee. You’ll be their real life Prince/Princess Charming.
