The numerous activities and adventures available on healthy honeymoons mean your break will be charged with challenging and reinvigorating experiences. Welcome the opportunity to create memories that you and your loved one will be reminiscing about for years to come, and reap the numerous health benefits on an adventure and wellness honeymoon.

4. Reconnect with nature
All too often in daily life, we forget to appreciate the beauty of nature. A healthy honeymoon is the ideal time for you and your loved one to immerse yourselves in a stunning scenic environment and feel at one with nature and with each other. Visit the exquisite glistening lakes and mountains of New Zealand, and take romantic hikes around the nature trails. Bury yourselves in the tropical jungles and beautiful beaches of Costa Rica, and explore the surroundings by surf, horseback or foot. By truly appreciating Mother Nature's greatest gifts, feel recharged and connected to your natural environment. Discover when to go where with our helpful healthy honeymoons calendar.

5. Learn a new skill together
Healthy honeymoons offer you the perfect environment to learn a new and exciting skill, sport or wellness practice in a beautiful destination. Learn something new together and discover a new hobby you can share in married life on a honeymoon activity holiday. Test your balance with stand-up paddle boarding (a.k.a. SUP) on a healthy honeymoon in Hawaii, surfing the rad waves of the Costa Rican coastline, practicing your Vinyasa on a yoga honeymoon in Spain, or learning how to meditate in Thailand. Carry on these new beneficial skills back at home and begin your married life as you mean to go on, with added health and well-being.

You and your newlywed will feel motivated and inspired as you promote good habits which will help you stick to a healthy lifestyle for long-term wellness. Surprise everyone at home by returning looking even better than you did when you left!
