1 . Beyond Petra: Discovering Jordan’s Rugged Side

Like the sound of wine, stargazing, sunrise hikes and wild camping? Follow us into Jordan’s desert and that’s what you’ll get, in abundance. You’ll spend nine days trekking through the mountains, stomping across the desert and camping under the stars as you explore Jordan’s coolest sites. Petra, the Dead Sea and Amman are just the highlights; unique experiences like climbing Mount Haron and spending the night with a local Bedouin family will deliver an adventure like no other.

2 . From the Rift Valley to Maasai Mara: the Ultimate Kenyan Safari Experience

If you thought an afternoon at the zoo was a great date, just wait until you cruise around Kenya on safari. This stunning country is a great destination choice for couples and animal lovers. Jump into the backseat and enjoy full-day game drives. Seeing which of you can spot the Big Five first is the ultimate road-trip game, though with dozens of other species making an appearance you’ll probably be too wonderstruck to keep track of who saw what.

4 . Britain’s Last Frontier: Exploring the Outer Hebrides

The Outer Hebrides, on the northwest coast of Scotland, might be one of the most isolated spots in Britain, but it’s welcoming to all. With white-sand beaches, secluded inlets, whisky distilleries and fascinating natural landmarks, it’s an excellent option for couples in search of an active break closer to home (if you’re UK-based). On our seven-day trip, you’ll trek past waterfalls and Tolkien-esque Fairy Pools, hike across the Trotternish Hills, visit the 5,000-year-old Calanais Standing Stones, and enjoy Scottish whisky at the Isle of Harris Distillery.

5 . Escape to Iceland’s Frozen Wilderness

Iceland is the perfect winter escape for thrill-seeking outdoorsy types and will enthrall any couple with their hearts set on adventure. Join this five-day trip to explore the Golden Circle by private super jeep, soak in geothermal hot springs, and ride a snowmobile across a frozen glacier. You’ll also head off on a thrilling chase of the phenomenal Northern Lights – should the clouds part and reveal the great green spectacle, how about popping that question to make a special moment ten times more special?
