Adventurous Honeymoons for Adventurous Newlyweds
What better location to celebrate your love on an adventure-filled honeymoon for adventurous newlyweds than in Iceland, one of the most LGBT-friendly countries worldwide. There’s plenty of adventurous experiences for all types of couples who love the thrill of the outdoors; whether that be hunting (Iceland has plenty of species of birds to hunt, just bring your best crossbow), or the excitement of hiking on a glacier, to a romantic night at a local farm gazing at the northern lights, the possibilities are endless for newlyweds who seek a once in a lifetime postnuptial experience.
For thrill-seeking couples, hiking on Falljökull, a glacier tongue flowing from Europe’s largest glacier, the mighty Vatnajökull, is an unmatched way of experiencing the great outdoors. Marvel at the majestic ice sculptures of Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon and always keep an eye out for cuddly creatures, seals. Or perhaps would you prefer hiking to the top of a newly created volcanic crater and taking a scenic boat ride within an archipelago of 15 volcanic islands on the Westman Islands?
A more laid-back but no less sensational option would be a visit to the famous Golden Circle region, which hosts some of Iceland’s most spectacular attractions. If you’re planning on touring the Golden Circle, consult this guide and map (especially is you’re renting a car and driving around the sights) – https://www.carsiceland.com/post/golden-circle-iceland-highlights-complete-guide. From regularly erupting geysers, the thunderous Gullfoss waterfall, to Friðheimar greenhouse tomato farm where you can make a stop for a delicious lunch amongst the plants of Iceland. On your way there, cozy up as newlyweds in the natural hot springs of the Secret Lagoon, Iceland’s oldest natural swimming pool.
For the adventurous couples, exploring the picturesque Westfjords, one of the wildest and most remote regions of Iceland where time seems to stand still. Enjoy adventures on the edge of the world with your new partner. Among others, this peninsula is home to the dramatic Dynjandi waterfall (also known as the Bridal Veil falls!), but is also home to Látrabjarg, a 1200 feet high sea cliff where you will be able to gaze at more than 70 species of birds, including the puffin, Iceland’s incredibly cute mascot.
