Adrenaline-fuelled romance: Perfect for adventure enthusiasts, this is a combination of excitement and relaxation among romantic surroundings. Some distinctive honeymoon experiences that couples are opting for include, heli-hiking in the Canadian Rockies, mobile camping in Africa, trekking to Machu Picchu in Peru, cycling coast to coast or ski-diving in New Zealand, island hopping and trekking in the Galapagos Islands.

Split honeymoon holidays or Mini-moons: Many couples nowadays are taking a shorter indulgent honeymoon just after their wedding at destinations nearby and a longer, more extravagant vacation in the later months. For e.g. couples can take a short and rejuvenating post-wedding holiday at a wellness resort in Kerala or Goa, and thereafter proceed for a longer vacation to destinations such as Australia.

Eco-friendly honeymoons: There is another growing trend of couples seeking to connect with nature and local culture. For many, the ‘want’ to preserve the planet forms a pivotal role while deciding where to visit and stay, and they prefer to select hotels that offer an amalgamation of luxury, unique activities and sustainability.  For e.g. couples can have a honeymoon in Kenya that includes staying at an eco-lodge at Maasai Mara, with luxurious huts made from locally sourced materials, utilizing energy efficient electricity or even water systems for operations.

Gourmet indulgence: In addition to choosing their favourite romantic destination(s), couples are also looking at indulging in exclusive gourmet experiences together such as cooking classes with celebrity chefs, organic farm stays and cook outs.
