Five alternative winter honeymoon ideas

04 Oct 2016

Branch out in your honeymoon options and discover a whole host of alternative holidays, perfect for the winter months

After months of planning and what feels like a million decisions made, choosing the perfect honeymoon destination can seem a little daunting. Antigua or Iceland? Greece or the South of France? Long haul or a city break? Summer climates or cultural activities? The honeymoon pressure is real.

But memorable honeymoons don’t always need to feature paradise islands and exotic rainforests (although this is always nice). Luxury For Less have put together five alternative getaways this winter for any newlyweds to experience the trip of a lifetime.

For the adventurers – Hiking in Patagonia

As well as an intriguingly large Welsh-speaking community, Patagonia has world-class hiking. Start near El Chalten and cross from Argentina into Chile, or – if you're brave – trek through rivers, forests and abandoned whaling stations to Cabo Froward, South America's southern-most point.

For the beach worshippers – Relax in Aruba

A pristine tropical marine, Aruba is like few other Caribbean islands, sharing Dutch, Spanish, Venezuelan and British heritage. It’s also pretty close to paradise, not least on the luxuriously lazy Eagle Beach.

For the wine-lovers – Cycling in Chile wine country

It's more than Merlot – Chile produces some of the world's finest wines. A host of friendly wineries welcome tourists, either for high-end tastings or casual introductions, providing a perfect way to break up an invigorating cycle along the Pacific coast.

For the culture seekers – City break in Vienna

Beethoven, Mozart, Haydn, Schubert, Brahms... the list of legendary composers who made Vienna their home explains why the city today is both classical and musical. But it's not living in the past: even the Museumsquartier combines baroque and modern architecture.

For the all-rounders – Beach holiday in Cyprus

Go for the history and stay for the food. Even before you try proper local mezze,  you'll see Roman ruins, Byzantine castles and the Tombs of the Kings, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
