3 Unexpected Honeymoon Ideas

3 Unexpected Honeymoon Ideas

If honeymoons are meant to be once-in-a-lifetime adventures for newlyweds that are filled with romance and wonder, why do so many couples choose ordinary destinations? If someplace totally unexpected sounds more like it, there are some incredible places in this world to consider. Here are just three destinations that are sure to dazzle and delight while offering high marks in the romance and beauty departments:


This island country just about 90 miles south of Florida has long been off limits to American honeymooners. That’s not the case any longer, but there are some caveats. Tourism is not yet allowed by the American government, but those participating in humanitarian or educational work may visit the island legally.

Just make arrangements to do some good while exploring this Caribbean paradise and the green light for travel should be given. The reasons to go are many, considering Cuba’s long-known beauty and stunning tropical island flare. Add to this the fact that few honeymooners would even consider this destination and it’s a recipe for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure for sure.

Ice Hotel

Though a decidedly colder destination than Cuba, Sweden’s Ice Hotel is equally intriguing. With no extraordinary travel restrictions, honeymooners are free to explore the wonders that have made this seasonal destination a crowd pleaser since 1989. The Ice Hotel is an art exhibit and hotel that has been crafted from ice and snow. The hotel melts each spring and is formed anew when the temperatures drop. That means no two trips are ever alike.

The hotel’s design does change every year, as well, but it typically boasts about 65 rooms, including deluxe suites. There’s also an Ice Church for couples seeking a unique destination wedding. The church opens on Christmas day each year.

The breathtaking natural beauty of Sweden meets the masterful ice carvings of the hotel to create a destination that is truly distinct. An estimated 50,000 people make the trek each year to see the hotel during its open season.

Machu Picchu

Should high-climbing adventure and ancient wonders fit the bill for romance more readily Peru’s Machu Picchu will not disappoint. Located high in the Andes Mountains, Machu Picchu is technically a mountain peak. The ruins of an Incan estate built in the 1400s, however, is the real draw for tourists heading to this site. Many archaeologists believe the “Lost City of Incans” was created for an emperor. It sits above the Sacred Valley, offering a tremendous view of the highly vegetated land below.
