Planning a wedding is stressful enough, but the light at the end of the tunnel is always the honeymoon. Whether it’s Hawaii or the Caribbean, most couples are looking forward to relaxing on a sandy beach. However, one of the recent trends has been to ditch that leisurely beach chair and pack a pair of sneakers for an adventure trip.
This new trend sends newlyweds on trips ranging from casual tourism to a true adrenaline rush. One of the most popular adventure honeymoons is New Zealand, where newlyweds can take the plunge again by bungee jumping in Shotover Canyon.
Another destination getting more hype for adventure-seeking honeymooners is Thailand. Couples can sit atop elephants in the Thai bamboo forests, hike through mountains and explore waterfalls.
Costa Rica is also gaining popularity as a popular location for alternative honeymoons. Visitors can hike through dense rainforest, latch onto a zipline and enjoy waterfall repelling.
For the newlyweds that still want to relax during some of the honeymoon, consider St. Croix. The Caribbean paradise boasts beautiful beaches and clear blue water, but also offers some exciting adventure for visitors. Newlyweds can scuba dive in the largest living coral reef in the Caribbean and check out the underwater canyons of marine life.
For the mildly adventurous, consider an Alaskan glacier cruise. Sail along the Alaskan coast for a weeklong voyage beginning in Vancouver and ending in Anchorage. Guests will see the mountains and wildlife Glacier Bay National Park.

People need a “chance to get some well-needed rest, relaxation and fresh air.” This is a sentiment we all likely share, as does the European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union. The EC included that phrase when it released its plan to help reopen Europe following the COVID-19 global pandemic. While most EU borders remain closed to international travel until at least mid-June, the EC’s plan starts with inter-Europe travel, and are non-binding recommendations and guidelines. European countries still have the final decision, so travelers are advised to check the restrictions of the countries they plan to visit. According to the EC, “blanket restrictions of free movement are replaced by targeted measures.”
