Your new life together all but demands a remarkable experience to get things kicked off. And spending your getaway in the grandeur of majestic mountains and pristine natural beauty of the great outdoors is certainly the beginnings of unforgettable memories. A wonderfully appealing aspect of a mountain honeymoon is that it can be enjoyed at any time of the year with a wide range of experiences for both the active and the laid-back.

A romantic mountain honeymoon means stepping away from crowds, enjoying gorgeous forest animals and exceptional personal, one-on-one activities such as hiking spectacular ridges, fishing cool mountain lakes and walking together in Alpine fields of colorful wildflowers. On the flip side, adventure mountain honeymoons are also perfect for the wild at heart. Skiing, snowboarding and ice-skating in winter months are balanced by the opportunity to zip line from range to range, white water raft on powerful rivers and bike on high altitude roads with breathtaking views in the warmer months.

Whether in cold climates or warm, there is a mountain honeymoon perfect for you and your budget. For example, western Canada is home to several incredible mountain destinations. Banff is a beautiful village in Banff National Park, which itself is within Alberta’s majestic Canadian Rockies. This nature lover’s paradise can put you as close as you want to environment with sumptuous high-end resorts to inexpensive mountain honeymoons in backwoods lodges without running water or electricity. Further west, Whistler in the Canadian province of British Columbia was once home to the Winter Olympics and now feeds your adventurous spirit with cross-country skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, heli-skiing (yes, being airlifted to a remote location by helicopter to ski!) and sleigh riding.

In fact, all around the world are fantastic locations for spectacular mountain honeymoons such as Vancouver Island in Canada, the Smokey Mountains of Tennessee, Utah’s Salt Lake City or the White Mountains of New Hampshire in North America. Europe’s majestic Alps can be wonderfully experienced in the French region of Bordeaux from a luxurious château, Australia’s aptly named Snowy Mountains will have you on the slopes and the Argentine resorts bring the ultimate in indulgent luxury to the towering Andes. Taking advantage of an all-inclusive package can bring you the secluded romance and relaxing rustic charm for the picture perfect mountain honeymoon escape.
