Are you an explorer rather than a sunbather? Interested in culture and history? Or are you just looking to travel somewhere a little different for your honeymoon?


Here are our 5 top alternative honeymoon destinations for you to consider.


Allianz Travel - Alt_HM
Aravalli Hills, India

Escape the crowds and head to Aravalli Hills! About an hour’s drive from Jaipur, this remote mountain range has breath taking views of the deserted valleys and hills. With 5-star hotels such as the Fort Bishangarh perched up on the hills, you can take in these views and relax in luxury.

Carefree, Arizona

Yes, that really is the name of the place, not just the feeling you will have in this unique honeymoon destination.


Here, not only can you kick back and relax, you will also be able to do rock climbing, ride horseback through the desert and star gaze. There are towns nearby, around 40 mins away, should you wish to have a change of pace and hit some bars!

Namibia, Africa

It was rumoured that Price Harry and Meghan Markle were to be taking their honeymoon in Namibia. If it is good enough for a prince, then it is good enough for us!


Namibia offers some of the best wildlife on the planet, along with long and stunning untouched coastlines, orange sand dunes and a sparse population. There are lots of accommodation options, including luxury traditional huts. So why not spend your honeymoon witnessing wild Elephant, Rhinos and more?

Allianz Travel - alt_hm_3
Finnish Lapland, Finland

Why not have the ultimate winter experience in one of Finland’s bonkers accommodation options. Watch out for the Northern Lights from the comfort of your own bed in one of the glass igloo resorts or bubble rooms that have become more popular in the last couple of years. You can also relax in a hot tub under the stars, go husky riding, ice fishing, and so much more!


Who said a honeymoon had to be hot? It may be cold outside, but doesn’t warming up in front of the fire with your other half sound lovely?


Allianz Travel - alt_hm_4
Cappadocia, Turkey

Have you seen those stunning photos of a valley with lots of colourful hot air balloons at sunrise? That is Cappadocia!

Cappadocia is located in central Turkey and recognised mostly for its fairy chimneys, unique rock formations that tower out of the ground. It really does feel like a fantasy world! There are hotels which are built into the walls of the valley, making for a truly unique experience.


There are many new offerings for honeymoons for those who want something a little different to the Seychelles and Maldives.

Do you have any suggestions? We would love to hear from you.
