Do you and your fiancé love adventure? If you do, perhaps leave the lazy (and clichéd) beach honeymoon to others, and instead take on something extraordinary together! Picture spending your honeymoon curling up together in a tent on the side of Mount Kilimanjaro. Or holding hands while sitting a few feet away from mountain gorillas in Uganda’s rainforest. Perhaps the ideal way to celebrate your new life together is exploring the hidden gems of Sri Lanka! Or, even more adventurous, why not kick of the Mr and Mrs lifestyle by going high-altitude trekking in the Himalayas of Nepal?? Or go white-water rafting in Bhutan? At Follow Alice we have a great selection of unique and adventurous honeymoon ideas for you that are sure to blow your socks off.
Are you and your fiancé keen for an adventure-fuelled start to married life?
A growing love for adventure honeymoons
The recent trend towards adventure travel and ecotourism has impacted the honeymoon market. More and more honeymooners want to travel somewhere unusual or remote, and to inject some real adventure into their trip. Some go all out, trekking, camping, ‘yurt-ing’ or staying in eco lodges. The more popular option, however, involves soft adventure travel, with newlyweds wanting a bed, roof and shower at the end of each day. For such folks, hotels, lodges or glamping is more the tune they’re whistling, with good doses of adventure sports and cultural outings taking place during the day.
So if you’re thinking of an adventure honeymoon, the first question to ask yourself might be: do I want a hardcore or soft adventure honeymoon?
Top trending adventure honeymoon ideas
According to Pinterest, 2019 saw a major uptick in safari honeymoon research. Skiing honeymoons in Switzerland also received a great deal of activity on the platform. If your adventure honeymoon thoughts are aligning with those of these Pinterest users, know that we offer a handful of fantastic trips in that vein:
- Go on a safari and mountain gorilla trek in Uganda
- Go on a Big Five safari in Tanzania
- Explore Sri Lanka, which includes a safari
- Join an epic ski weekend in Switzerland
Benefits of the group honeymoon
At Follow Alice we offer group trips, and we think they actually make for a great honeymoon idea! We know that group adventure trips aren’t common as honeymoons, so please stay with us for a sec as we explain our thinking …
Group trips are cost-effective
For starters, group holidays organised by an experienced travel operator like Follow Alice offer great cost savings. An African safari, for example, can be quite pricey. But groups get reduced fees. A honeymoon that might be out of your price range could be doable as part of a group. You’ll still get plenty of alone time, of course, while enjoying the fun and cost-effectiveness of taking on an adventure with others.
You give the admin to someone else
Another reason behind the group honeymoon idea is that when you travel with a tour operator, most of the admin is taken off of your hands (which are doubtless super busy already with prepping a wedding!). Further, tour operators research and explore destinations thoroughly, so they’re able to book the best accommodation and take you to the best spots and attractions. Again, minimal work on your part, yet great rewards.
At Follow Alice, for instance, we partner with hotels and lodges that we’ve tried ourselves and know to be topnotch. We also partner with talented and knowledgeable locals to treat our guests to the very best adventure activities a region has to offer. During our Everest Base Camp trek, for instance, our local guide Oangdi Gurung leads us on a detour to the beautiful Gokyo Lakes during our return trip. Most trekkers simply repeat the inward-bound route, which we think is a pity, as the area has so much more to offer the curious visitor.
You enjoy alone time and make new friends!
And finally, group adventure honeymoons afford you the chance to meet new, like-minded people from around the world. Picture sitting round a table in a small Himalayan teahouse along the Annapurna Circuit, for instance, and chatting with your trekking buddies over hot food while the wind howls outside? Then head to your room as a couple to bundle up for the night, knowing that tomorrow you can rejoin the camaraderie of the trek group on the trail?
Keen for a buddy-moon?
Love your friends to bits and looking forward to celebrating your marriage with them? Well, a new trend that’s picking up steam around the world is the buddy-moon, where the newly married couple takes a small group of close friends with them on their honeymoon.
The buddy-moon works well for very social couples. It’s also ideal for the couple who have friends they don’t often get to see, especially those who must travel far to be at the wedding. You often don’t get to spend as much time as you’d like with friends in the busy leadup to the ceremony, nor on the day itself when you’re spreading yourself thin among all of your guests. By going on a buddy-moon together, you extend the celebration with a few special people.
The buddy-moon is also a good idea for those planning destination weddings. It allows you and your closest friends to really enjoy the beauty and attractions of the location to the max. You also create shared memories around your special occasion that will last a lifetime.
If you think you might like to investigate a buddy-moon, we invite you to start chatting with us. We have plenty of ideas and might just the partner you need to help make this dream a reality!
The value of travelling with an experienced tour operator
One of the reasons behind the success of tour operators like Follow Alice is that we offer travellers the safety of joining in a well-organised group trip. Moreover, we go to destinations where you might feel uncertain about going on your own. Most of our adventure trips take place in African and Asia countries. Here, the languages, cultures, customs and transport systems are usually quite unfamiliar to many international travellers.
There’s great benefit to travelling with an experienced tour operator, not only in terms of safety but also in terms of cost and logistics. Tour operators offer group rates, and they organise your transport and more. They also take most of the admin off your hands. And finally, they’ve also done most of the research for you, having identified the best spots within a region or country to visit.
Unique adventure honeymoon ideas
Take a look at these exciting honeymoon ideas. We’ve indicated if each one is hardcore or soft adventure (think trekking and camping versus day-time activities and soft beds) …

- Gorilla trek and safari in Uganda (soft adventure)
- Trek to Everest Base Camp (hardcore adventure)
- Trek the Annapurna Circuit (hardcore adventure)

- Hidden gems of Sri Lanka (soft adventure)
Here are the details on these epic adventure trips, each of which would make for an extraordinary honeymoon!
Get to know your spouse even better by taking on the challenge of a lifetime together – climbing Kilimanjaro! Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa, and the highest freestanding mountain in the world. And yet it doesn’t require any mountaineering skill or equipment to scale it – just hardy hiking boots, strong legs, and some grit and determination.
Picture this …
Picture yourselves leaving all the finery of the wedding behind for a true outdoor adventure. You’ll fly to Tanzania and check into a beautiful lodge. The next day you’ll meet some fellow trekkers and be driven past game and open savannah to Kilimanjaro National Park. Headed by our trusted trek guide, Chris, and accompanied by an experienced mountain crew, you’ll start by hiking along dirt paths through beautiful rainforest. At the end of the day, you and your new Mr or Mrs will climb into your two-man tent (which has been set up for you by the crew) to chat over the day’s events.
The next day you’ll trek up above the trees and enter moorland and heath, where the vegetation is sparse but includes towering lobelias and groundsels. On this day and the next you’ll be climbing over and around rock and cliff faces, and things will be getting chilly and the air thin. In the evenings you’ll sit holding hands in camp chairs drinking hot drinks and looking down over the African plain.
When you finally reach summit day, you’ll wake around midnight and turn to each other and say: “We can do this!” You’ll then put on your warmest layers, your beanie and gloves and thermal socks, and you’ll join the group as you trek over scree and ice to reach the summit of Kilimanjaro just after sunrise. Can you see yourselves beaming for a photo at Uhuru Peak, 5,895 m above sea level??
Seven different Kilimanjaro routes
There are seven Kilimanjaro routes leading to the summit of the mountain. Except for the Marangu Route, all require you to camp. Part of the adventure of climbing Kilimanjaro is how it brings you back into contact with nature. Every day you hike through beautiful terrain, surrounded by the natural vegetation. Those who are observant see plenty of wildlife, including – on certain routes – large game like elephants and antelope. Climbing Kilimanjaro actually takes you through five different climate zones: forest, heath, moorland, alpine desert, and arctic. You pretty much enter a different ecosystem every day of the trek!
Climbing Kilimanjaro is a great adventure holiday for couples who like to test their limits, experience new things together, and do their things their own way.
All tents on the Kilimanjaro climb sleep two, so as newlyweds you’ll have your own little home on the mountain for the duration of your trek.

“I climbed Kilimanjaro last year with Follow Alice and it was an unforgettable experience!! All the planning was made at their side and I just enjoyed the beautiful climb – so simple and well delivered.” Silvia Coimbra
Want to make your honeymoon even more epic?
Here’s an idea: go all out for your honeymoon by pairing a Kilimanjaro trek with a Tanzanian safari! Both adventures take place in north Tanzania, so we find many clients like to climb the mountain and then reward their efforts with a relaxing safari trip to see the Big Five!
Tanzania is arguably the ultimate safari destination for wildlife lovers. With 16 beautifully maintained national parks, it offers some of Africa’s best game viewing. Some of the animals one can find on safari include African elephants, lions, zebras, hippos, wildebeests, hyenas, caracals and kobs. Tanzania is a beacon when it comes to preserving its natural heritage – it has 42,000 square kilometres of national park!
Highlights of a Tanzania safari
Some of the highlights of our Tanzania safari trip are:
- Go on safari in the UNESCO-listed Ngorongoro Crater
- Spot lions, leopards, wildebeests, black rhinos, African elephants, cheetahs, giraffes and much more!
- Camp overnight in some of Africa’s most beautiful national parks
- Watch the sunrise over the African savannah
- Experience the rich culture of the Maasai tribes people
Our exciting destinations
During our time on safari we visit the following world-famous sites:
- Lake Manyara National Park
- Serengeti National Park
- The Ngorongoro Crater
Lake Manyara National Park is one of Tanzania’s smaller parks, but it packs a real punch, boasting savannah, bush plains and evergreen forest. The chance to see elephant families moving through the forest is reason enough on its own to visit this gem of a park!
The word serengeti means ‘endless plains’ in the Maasai language, and this is truly apt. Serengeti National Park is home to the Great Migration, the famous annual migration of over two million grazing animals like wildebeest, zebra and gazelle. Our drive in the park affords us ample game-watching opportunities, as well as the chance to visit the beautiful Olduvai Gorge. We’ll also visit the Maasai Culture Boma to learn about the history and culture of this fascinating tribe.
Directly south of Serengeti National Park is Ngorongoro Crater, the largest collapsed volcanic crater in the world! The walls of the crater have created an oasis of wildlife. You can expect to see plenty of lions, elephants, zebras, hippos, wildebeest, jackals, kobs, eagles, vultures, and so much more. There are also brightly coloured flamingoes in the crater lake and hippos in the swamp, which is where we stop for lunch!
Gorilla trek in Uganda
Uganda is known as the Pearl of Africa, for very good reason. This lush country has mountains, jungle, mountain gorillas, savannah, the Big Five, island-dotted lakes, rich culture, welcoming people, and so much more. At Follow Alice we’ve put together a wild adventure holiday that takes in the best the country has to offer: we explore the capital city of Kampala, go on a mountain bike safari, row in traditional boats on the lake, zipline into the water, visit chimpanzees in the wild, and go on a boat cruise. And finally, our pièce de resistance: we take a trek in the rainforest to see mountain gorillas in their natural habitat. It’s all epic times in Uganda, and the perfect destination for a romantic and out-of-the-ordinary honeymoon getaway!
An adventure-packed itinerary
During our eight-day stay in Uganda, we take you to various beautiful spots around the country. Some of the exciting activities on the cards are:
- Visit Nedere Cultural Centre in Kampala, Uganda’s capital city
- Go on a mountain bike safari in Lake Mburo National Park
- Hike to see chimpanzees in the wild
- Take a boat cruise on Bunyonyi Lake and zipline into it
- Quad bike around Bunyonyi to explore local villages
- Row in traditional dugout canoes on the lake to visit some of its islands
- Take an evening walk into the town of Kabale
- Go on a jeep and boat safari in Queen Elizabeth National Park
- Trek in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest to see a gorilla troop
Trekking to see mountain gorillas
The gorilla trek is the highlight of our trip. And for good reason. The mountain gorilla is an endangered animal – there are estimated to be fewer than 900 in the wild. They live only in Uganda, the DRC and Rwanda. We’ll take a guided trek through the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest to find a troop to observe. As the name of the forest suggests, we’ll be trekking through dense vegetation. You can expect overgrown trails, walls of green, dripping leaves, rivers and rivulets, forest sounds, mist and perhaps the odd downpour! Trekking through such an untouched and thick forest like this is a treat in and of itself.
Mountain gorillas are known for being mostly gentle and shy. The gorilla troops that are visited are habituated ones, meaning they’re used to the presence of humans. It’s wonderful to watch them interact among themselves, and hear their grunts and barks. Very few people are afforded the opportunity to view these gentle giants in their natural habitat – those who do rarely leave the forest unaffected.
Really adventurous honeymooners could combine a gorilla trek in Uganda with a Kilimanjaro climb in Tanzania, as the two East African nations are neighbours.
Trek to Everest Base Camp
Not everyone can climb Mount Everest, but most of us can make the trek to its famous base camp. The Everest Base Camp trek is a challenging but ever-so-rewarding two-week hike through the Himalayas. It starts in the temperate zone at around 2,500 m and requires you to climb up to the alpine zone at over 5,000 m. During the trek we hike as a group up steep, forested valleys, over suspension bridges, across desolate valley floors and lake beds, along high contour paths, and over snowy mountain passes.
We stay in traditional Sherpa villages, eat Nepali food, visit Buddhist monasteries, stand back for passing yaks, dip our toes in icy high-altitude lakes, and marvel at snow-capped mountain peaks every way we turn. And in the middle of it all, we get to stand in Everest Base Camp, where the prayer flags are pulled at relentlessly by the wind and we contemplate the start of the trail taken by many greats to reach the top of the world’s highest mountain.
Highlights of the Everest Base Camp trek
This two-week trip to the Himalayas of eastern Nepal is not just about standing at Everest Base Camp. No, no – it has so much more in store for curious and intrepid travellers. When you travel to do the Everest Base Camp trek with Follow Alice, you’ll:
- Take an exciting flight from Kathmandu to the mountain town of Lukla
- Trek for two weeks through the beautiful Sagarmatha National Park
- Stay in traditional Sherpa villages and experience the local culture and cuisine
- Visit Tibetan Buddhist monasteries and other important cultural sites
- See wild and domesticated animals like musk deer and wild goats
- See Mt Everest, Khumbu Glacier and many other spectacular Himalayan peaks and glaciers
- Visit the world’s most iconic base camp
- Stay on the shore of the beautiful Gokyo Lake
- Challenge yourself physically and mentally as you trek at great altitude
- Make friends with fellow trekkers from around the world
How far is the trek to Everest Base Camp?
The Everest Base Camp trek is 65 km each way when you walk the most direct route. This is the traditional trek route. There are, however, variations to this route, a common one being the Everest Base Camp trek via Gokyo Lakes.
We hike the Everest Base Camp trek via Gokyo Lakes, an exciting alternative to the classic trek route that takes in more of the area.
Who should do the Everest Base Camp trek?
If you’re a curious soul who doesn’t mind a little discomfort for the sake of new experiences, then the Everest Base Camp trek is for you! You don’t need any mountaineering skills or equipment, nor do you need to be an athlete. You do, however, need to be reasonably fit. Simply put, if you’re able to go on a day-long hike wherever you live without falling over with fatigue and complaining that life is no fun, then you should be perfectly able to tackle Everest Base Camp.
If you’d like to know more about the challenges of the trek, we recommend you read How hard is Everest Base Camp? This blog post describes the trek route and surrounding terrain, daily hiking hours, the dangers of altitude sickness, and more. You might also like to read:
Trek the Annapurna Circuit
The Annapurna Circuit trek is an incredibly varied and exciting high-altitude trek. Located in Nepal’s central Himalayas, the Annapurna region boasts some of the world’s highest mountains. Most famous is Annapurna I, the seventh highest peak in the world at 8,091 m (26,545 ft).
On the Annapurna Circuit trek we hike deep into the Himalayas. We wind our way up steep, forested valleys and canyons, walk narrow paths that snake round the sides of mountains, visit an ice lake, and cross a bleak summit pass. The higher we climb, the fiercer the weather, with strong winds and temperatures that drop below freezing at night. It’s a fantastic adventure trip for newlyweds (and others) who want a challenge and something out of the ordinary!
Annapurna circuit people and culture
The people groups we meet along the Annapurna trek route vary greatly. At the trail’s start we meet Hindu communities with close ties to Indian culture, but when we enter into the remote mountains we meet Tibetic groups who are closely connected in culture to their neighbours to the north. Along the trail we encounter temples, prayer flags, stupas, gompas, prayer wheels, and more. Every day on the Annapurna circuit introduces you to something new and surprising.
The Annapurna Circuit trek route
Many treks around the world involve hiking from Point A to Point B and then back along the same route, often because the terrain dictates it. Not a problem, but arguably not ideal. The Annapurna Circuit route, by contrast, is a roughly circular route that takes you anticlockwise through the valleys and gorges and over some of the heights of the Annapurna Massif. Every day brings something new!
We start in the small village of Pisang. Over the next few days we hike deep into the remote mountains, eventually climbing up into a rain shadow. Colourful prayer flags and Buddhist stupas (religious monuments) can be seen all along the trek route. The pinnacle of the trek – both literally and mentally – is reaching the top of the mountain pass Thorung La. Thorung La is 5,416 m (17,769 ft) above sea level. It’s a snow-covered spot that’s blasted by fierce winds.
After this special moment of victory, the trek’s descent begins. The route drops down from the chilly heights into the woods before reaching the hills and plains of the Mustang District, where we spend a night. Next we fly to the beautiful lakeside city of Pokhara, a popular tourist destination, where we stay a night. We have the option of exploring the city, canoeing on the lake, ziplining above the trees, and more!
At the end of the Annapurna Circuit you stay in a luxurious lakeside resort in Pokhara where there’s fine dining, a spa and more.
Who should hike the Annapurna Circuit?
The Annapurna Circuit trek is one of the most popular treks worldwide. This is because of the sheer diversity and beauty of the trek route. We can vouch for the fact that every day on this trip is new and exciting. And also that the hard work and sweat to complete it is one hundred percent worth it. The views, the people and the memories are truly special.
The Annapurna Circuit is a non-technical route, which means you don’t need any special experience or skills to complete it. You just need a good pair of hiking boots and a decent level of fitness. So if you’re a reasonably fit person with an adventurous spirit, we hope to share the experience of trekking the Annapurna Circuit with you soon!

The beach honeymoon is far and away the most popular among newlyweds. And we totally get it: couples are keen to relax in beautiful, warm surroundings after the busyness and demands of a wedding. But how about choosing a more exciting and culturally rich beach destination than is the usual?
Sri Lanka is an island of green hills, tea plantations, ancient temples, spicy food, astonishing wildlife and postcard-like beaches. In other words, it has it all! We invite you to explore the hidden gems of Sri Lanka with us in one of our action-packed trips in 2020. We’ll raft, snorkel, bike, tuk-tuk, swim, surf, hike and take a train ride through the amazing nature of this scenic island. We’ll also go on safari to see elephants, leopards, crocs and other exciting creatures. And finally we’ll relax and dine in some of the most beautiful boutique hotels and adventure lodges the country has to offer.
The landscape of Sri Lanka includes idyllic warm-water beaches, tangled jungle, tea plantations, and tree-covered mountains. In our 11-day trip to the island we explore the northwest of the country, where the turquoise waters meet the shore in beautiful white-sand beaches and pristine mangroves, and palm trees frame the scene. We then travel inland to go on safari, hike high into the mountains, and explore an ancient rock citadel. We also travel south for a dose of colonial history, some epic watersports, and more beautiful beaches.
An exciting and action-packed itinerary
While staying on this beautiful island you can pick and choose from all of the following exciting activities:
- Kite surf, whale and dolphin watch, cycle and visit the mangrove swamps in Kalpitiya

At Follow Alice we’re all about adventure, exploration and meeting new people.
A great dose of history and culture
We know that no trip to Sri Lanka would be complete if you weren’t exposed to some local colour and culture. So don’t worry – we’ve got you sorted. We offer our guests the following handpicked outings:
- Take a guided tour of the well-preserved seaside Galle Fort built in the 1500s by the Portuguese and later extended by the Dutch

“The ski weekend was a bit of everything! Can’t recommend it enough!” Natalie Janicka
We have chosen the beautiful Arosa Lenzerheide as the site for our alpine weekend getaway. Arosa Lenzerheide is a mountain ski resort in east Switzerland that boasts 225 km of prepared slopes.

Yoga retreat in Tuscany
One of our trips that’s very well suited to the married couple who simply wants time and space to unwind after the wedding is our Tuscany yoga retreat. The focus of this eight-day trip is meditation, relaxation, fine food and wine, a little exploration, meeting new people and, of course, yoga!
The perfect location
What could be a better location for a relaxing week of meditation, yoga and cultural exploration than beautiful Tuscany? Known for its rolling hills, temperate climate, vineyards and olive farms, Tuscany offers the mind and senses a chance to relax, unwind and get back in touch with nature.
A mix of yoga, food and adventure
A yoga retreat has to include plenty of yoga to be worthy of the name, so we do just that! During your stay with us in Tuscany we offer four days of instructor-led asana, pranayama and meditation. On three of those days we also offer restorative practices and chanting. And let’s not forget the professional massages! If your wedding prep got you stressed, your masseuse will knead it all away.
As to food, you can expect freshly made local cuisine every day of the retreat. All of your meals, as well as well as tea and snacks, are included in the package. You can also enjoy a delicious wine from the estate.
We also offer our guests two outings during the trip: one to Florence, and one to Pisa or Lucca. Florence was at the heart of the Renaissance and as such is full of beautiful buildings, artworks, bridges, gardens, palaces and more. You can visit the famous Medici Palace, the Uffizi Museum, the Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral, and more iconic landmarks. Why not be that couple standing arm-in-arm and grinning insanely wide while standing in iconic locations?
