Most betrothed couples have some idea of how they’d like to spend their first vacation together as newlyweds. It could be a week of pools, beaches and fancy restaurants – or something a little more rough-and-ready. TRIPS by Culture Trip are designed with adventurous travellers in mind, bringing you to the brink of volcanoes, the fringe of frozen glaciers, or even face to face with a Bengal tiger. Read on for our top honeymoon adventure.
1 . Frozen wilderness and thrilling activities in Iceland

If you’re looking for a unique honeymoon idea that’s full of adventure, try this five-day Iceland trip. Intrepid honeymooners will discover glaciers, black-sand beaches and volcanic lagoons from their base in the capital city of Reykjavík. There’s a visit to the giant waterfalls of the little-known Borgarfjörður region, as well as the chance to soak in hot springs and chase the Northern Lights. For real thrillseeking couples, there’s even a white-knuckle snowmobile ride along a glacier – before a soothing dip in the Blue Lagoon.

3 . Epic train journeys and heart-racing adventures in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka makes it onto our list of best adventure honeymoon destinations for many reasons – and most are included as activities on this 12-day trip, departing from Colombo.

4 . Mayan temples, hidden cenotes and on-tap margaritas in Mexico

While it may be an obvious choice for top honeymoon beach destinations, Mexico offers far more than just incredible white-sand beaches. When you’re not enjoying a private sunset catamaran tour off the island of Holbox – or snorkelling in its wild cenotes – you can immerse yourself in Mayan culture and history at ancient sites Chichén Itzá and Cobá, before toasting your trip (and marriage!) with a margarita or two in Tulum.

5 . Mountain hikes, home-made cooking and tiger-spotting in Nepal

Secluded safari parks, soaring peaks and temple-filled plazas have all helped Nepal earn its place as one of the most adventurous honeymoon destinations – and you’ll get to experience them all on this trip. Starting in Kathmandu, you’ll get a taste of Nepalese life as you hike between Sarangkot and Naudanda, boat across Phewa Lake in Pokhara, and learn how to make momo dumplings at a Tibetan refugee camp. You’ll also embark on a safari for the chance to spot Bengal tigers.
