If you’re planning your big day, chances are you’ve given some thought about what comes after, and getting some R&R or adventure on a gorgeous, romantic honeymoon.
Here are a few of the top and most popular honeymoon destinations that Canadian newlyweds might want to consider.
The Exotic Madives
The Maldive Islands are one of the most pristine and exotic honeymoon destinations on the planet. These more than 2,000 tiny islands offer dreamy, balmy nights and sun-soaked days; crystal clear, turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean and endless opportunities for relaxing or enjoying activities like snorkeling, diving and shelling.
Cappadocia is the land of “fairy chimneys” and it looks like something right out of a fairy tale. A hot air balloon ride at sunset or sunrise over the rust-coloured hills followed by a couple’s massage might be just what the two of you need after all that wedding planning.
If you’re keen on feeling some zen-like vibes on a white, sandy beach, Tulum might be a top contender for your honeymoon. The water is like glass, the cocktails are cold, the snorkeling is some of the best around and Tulum is also noted for having the most delicious food in Mexico!
Turks and Caicos
With 14 miles of coral reef and a 7,000-foot underwater wall for exploring, Turks and Caicos has no shortage of activities for adventurous honeymooners. If being underwater is not your thing, the sugary sand and sun is perfect for sipping cocktails on this lovely Caribbean island.
If a European honeymoon is more to your liking, you might want to consider Budapest, which is the No. 1 tourist destination in Eastern Europe at the moment. The two sides of the city, Buda and Pest are linked by spectacular bridges. The people are friendly, the food is delicious and there is much to explore in this historical city. And when you get tired, visit one of the many spas Budapest has to offer which feature healing waters to soothe your tired muscles after all that sightseeing.
If seeing the Northern Lights is on your bucket list, a honeymoon in Finland might be picture perfect. You can stay cozy and warm cuddling up with your new spouse as you watch the lights dance across the sky which is only one reason Lapland is a magical place.
Queenstown, New Zealand
With its rugged beauty, New Zealand has become quite popular with honeymooners. Queenstown is set against the country’s southern Alps. It offers many adventures for couples—from hot air balloon rides, lake cruises, hiking and winery tours. It is also home to one of the world’s tallest bungee jumps, if you’re particularly daring.
