Are you ready for the rising trend of adventuremoons?

Adventurous honeymoons are on the rise for couples tying the knot.

Fewer couples are choosing to head off on all-inclusive beach breaks but are instead choosing to add adventurous elements to their honeymoon. There seems to be a growing trend for couples looking to be immersed in the experiences, culture and traditions of the places they visit.

Some options include African safaris combined with beach options in the Indian Ocean such as Mauritius, allowing couples to experience excursions across a range of countries. From seeing the ‘big five’, meeting local tribes such as the Masai and visiting key geological sites such as Table Mountain in Cape Town.

Road trips have also become a popular option, particularly in the USA. An alternative destination for those wanting to go further afield is New Zealand. Road trips provide couples with the ultimate freedom of choosing their own routes, and in the USA they can hire some amazing cars to drive in.

Whilst those truly adventurous couples might be keener to try campervanning around New Zealand – with so much on offer, including bungee jumping, white water rafting to wine tasting – there is something to keep even the most active couples happy.

For those couples marrying in the winter months, why not offer them the opportunity to head to Lapland to view the Northern Lights. Whilst there, they can add some winter activities such as a husky sled ride, and for that added wow factor clients can stay in a glass igloo.

If clients are still looking for that all-inclusive beach element, this can be added into a more adventurous honeymoon itinerary and it is a lovely way to end a holiday with a bit of rest and relaxation.
