Whether it's exploring the Great Barrier Reef, driving around the USA or exploring Africa on safari, adventurous couples stay tuned; this one's for you!
Go on an New Zealand Road Trip
Peter Jackson put New Zealand back on the map when he made the most of the countries spellbinding scenery; magnificent mountains, volcanoes, sweeping farmland, sandy white beaches and winding roads made the perfect setting for Jackson's middle earth adventures and NZ itself is home to the adrenaline junkie. If you or your partner love to be active and adventurous, heading to the other side of the world where the inhabitants literally live on the edge is ideal.
Go on a wild road trip by hiring a vehicle or caravan from Juicy Lucy. Explore Auckland, Wellington the Bay of Islands, Rotorua and Taupo in the North and Wanaka, Queenstown and Christchurch in the south. Make sure you stop off for a bungee jump and a sky dive!
Cycle around the Netherlands
If your second love is your bike, then the Netherlands is the setting for you. Quaint windmills, flourishing flowers and lots of space; it's easy to be a biker in the Netherlands and most of the country is pretty much postcard ready. You can basically pick up a bike anywhere and Tulip Cycling will help you sort out your route and itinerary and it's a great way to see the country whilst fully immersing yourself.
Spain continues to capture our imaginations. The food, the people, the language, the history and the scenery are truly captivating and exploring Spain by foot is a mesmerising experience. Tiny hidden villages, heaving cities and magical forests are just the tip of the iceberg here. Randonee Tours will help you get started as you explore Spain.

Go on Safari
If you love animals and nature, then Africa is a must see and exploring the diversity of Africa's landscape and wildlife is a breathtaking way to take it all in. Keep your eye out for big six and stay on site whilst exploring by day (or even by night). It's also possible to explore on foot at the South Luangwa National Park in Zambia. Botswana also offers wallet friendly safari options.
Go diving in Australia
Head to Australia, home of sand, sea and surf and get your Pedi license. Learning to dive the countries gorgeous great barrier reef is a truly once in a lifetime opportunity. Home to the world's largest reef, Australia also offers shipwreck dives and teaches you a valuable and hugely rewarding life skill; it's also a wonderful way to see the world beneath the water with the one you love.
Drive around America
America's long, generous roads are the stuff of road trip legend. Jumping in a car and taking to the highway whilst blasting classic American music is one of the best ways we can think of to enjoy your honeymoon. Route 66 is the obvious choice but you can also take the road less travelled if you prefer; America is so big and vast that you can literally see it all. If you'd prefer a jump-on jump-off bus experience then consider the Greyhound; it's been getting American's around for donkey's years.
Play James Bond in Thailand
Phang Nga Bay is home to the notorious 'James Bond Island' featured in the classic bond film 'The man with the golden gun.' You can get there by boat to see the striking structure pierce the water and stretch toward the sky and of course re-enact that classic bond pose!
See the Northern Lights

Stay in Dracula's Castle
If you love vampires, why not stay inDracula's castle? A horse drawn carriage will take you to the door and you can enjoy an adventurous and slightly spooky experience not for the faint of heart. Bran Castle comes highly recommended by most who love this type of thrill.
