There’s no time for post-wedding blues when you’ve got the trip of a lifetime to look forward to. Your honeymoon is so much more than your usual yearly break in the sun. Celebrate this magical time with a touch of true luxury.
We caught up the wonderful Lee from Not Just Travel, Bedfordshire-based independent Travel Consultants and all-round honeymoon expert, to find out his top tips for planning your dream honeymoon.
The talented team told us that more and more couples are looking to book a bespoke trip that incorporates both blissful extravagance and the more rustic side of travelling. Start your trip by relaxing somewhere decadent for a few days to recover from all that wedding planning, before heading out with a backpack to really experience the culture of the country you’re in. Before you head back home, round off your holiday with a few more days of luxury- you deserve it.
If you really want to make the most of your time away together, Not Just Travel recommend looking into visiting more than one country. You’ll get to see more, experience more, and return to the UK feeling like you and your new spouse have embarked on a real adventure together.
Their ultimate top tip? Relax for a few days before boarding that plane. Wedding planning is stressful enough, and you don’t want to spend your first few days away completely exhausted from the wedding.
We asked Not Just Travel to give us their top honeymoon ideas for a couple looking to do something a little different. Here are three of their favourite destinations.
Alaska – For the Wildlife Enthusiast
Take a cruise to Alaska to see wildlife like never before. Visit gorgeous mountains and lakes, and spot moose, penguins and bears in their natural habitat.
Luxor, Egypt – For the History Buff
Known as the “open-air Museum” and resting on the banks of the River Nile, head to Luxor to get a true sense of Egyptian culture. You’ll spend your days marvelling at the temples and visiting bustling bazaars.
South America – For the Explorer
Plan a bespoke tour of the Amazon, travel as a local and experience the true South America. Perfect for the Adventurer in you!
Switzerland – For the Minimooners
Head to Switzerland for beauty and tranquility, the perfect short break away, before the big trip later. So much history and such a beautiful place. The vast spaces and clean fresh air will make you feel like you’re in another world.
