Weddings are fun, but they can also be tiring and stressful for the bride and groom. The honeymoon is frequently the light at the end of the tunnel for couples planning a wedding. A unique, summer honeymoon destination will help inspire the couple get through the process with anticipatory excitement. For an especially unforgettable honeymoon, consider these top five unique ideas.
Honeymoon with a Heart
A volunteer honeymoon that gives back to a disadvantaged community is the perfect note on which to begin a meaningful relationship. The newlyweds will celebrate their love in a community that needs the skill, energy and hope that is inherent in newlyweds.
Volunteer honeymoons provide opportunities to help in combination with luxurious accommodations and great food and drink. The activities available are varied and depend upon your location. Walk with lions in Africa, cultivate the spirit in Asia, and build a safe haven for orphans in Belize. The possibilities are endless at Honeymoon Volunteers.
Honeymoon in a Tree House
There is a child within all of us, and newlyweds are no exception. Cater to the kid inside by honeymooning in a 100-year-old Sangrillo tree deep in the forest. The Tree House Lodge offers beautiful honeymoon packages with luxury and romance.
Cross the steep suspension bridge to reach your tree house. The suite is a split level with a double king size bed and bath upstairs. Downstairs is another double bed, single bed and kitchen. Guests can enjoy activities like yoga, white water rafting, surfing and an adventurous zip line canopy tour.
Underground Silver Mine
The Sala Silvermine in Sweden sets a most unusual stage for a radical honeymoon hundreds of feet deep underground in a working silver mine. Leave your cell phones behind, as they will not work this deep underground in the mystical, cozy suite.
Why start this exceptional experience after the wedding? The ceremony itself can be held down below, between steep rock walls, magically lit by candlelight. Activities include guided tours, making silver jewelry and a daring, high wire adventure track.
Champagne, Roses, Stars and Yurts
Deep in the heart of the Portugal Mountains is a collection of lovely, well-appointed yurts. The yurts are maintained sustainably, in harmony with nature. Each yurt has a queen sized bed and a bathroom. The rustic charm combined with luxurious details makes for a memorably rare experience.
Couples can bike, hike, or explore the local villages during the day. At night, a home cooked dinner is waiting in the yurt or on the farmhouse veranda. Family owned and loaded with charm, the Yurt Holiday Portugal honeymoon will provide albums full of picture perfect moments.
Honeymooning on a glacier at Kenai Fjords Wilderness Lodge in the National Park is an incredibly remarkable way to begin as a new family. Newlyweds can sip champagne at the foot of Kenai Mountain's tremendous rock and ice walls while floating in the crystal pure water of the Gulf of Alaska—the freshest air imaginable. Cruising, kayaking, fishing, hiking, touring, and so much more, is made spectacular in the raw beauty that is Alaska.
The traditional beachfront honeymoon is a safe bet. An unusual honeymoon destination makes for lasting memories and inimitable experiences. The best way to plan a unique summer honeymoon is to abandon preconceived notions, start with a blank slate, and consider these unique summer honeymoon destinations.
