Manali, India

At this hill station you are so high up you’ll feel like you’re in heaven! Surrounded by the snow covered Himalaya Mountains and pristine countryside it is the perfect place to connect with nature, and each other. While a honeymoon here means you are isolated from your regular surroundings there is still plenty to do. Here you can explore forests, meandering streams, enjoy the gentle wind, bright green meadows, and picturesque rural villages. When you’re done bathing in natural hot springs, seeing the Rehalla Falls, hiking, paragliding and skiing, there are the local historic and archaeological sites to discover. Check out the Hadimba Devi temple and the nearby Tibetan Monastery.

Inari, Finland

Take a trip to Finland and move quickly from the capital north towards Santa’s home in Rovaniemi. After visiting the Real Santa at Santa’s Village head further north to Lapland and the small one-reindeer town of Inari. You could take your honeymoon here in the summer or spring and enjoy the fishing, fresh air, green meadows and endless hiking or for a slightly offbeat honeymoon head for Inari in the winter. The town is covered in a coat of snow, the large Inari Lake is frozen over with ice a meter deep and the activities on offer are endless. Try ice fishing, snow mobile riding, horse riding through the pine forests at night or driving your own team of husky dogs. You can stay in the nearby Kakslauttanen Saariselka Igloo Village where the igloos are made of glass so you can lie in bed at night and look up at the Northern lights. All this and the local, Sami people are the friendliest folk you’ll ever meet.

Kyoto, Japan

The heritage city of Kyoto is one of the oldest in Asia; the many historic buildings have put Kyoto on the map with a whopping 17 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Immerse yourselves in the Japanese traditions and culture and visit the temples, palaces, parks, markets and museums. Kyoto has many annual festivals including the cherry blossom festival when the cherry trees are in bloom (March to early May) and the city becomes the epitome of romance. The best places to see the blooms are in Maruyama Park and Arashiyama. While in Kyoto chill out – or rather warm up – in one of the city’s traditional bath houses. There are 12 bath houses in Kyoto offering natural hot spring pools and spa treatments.

Havana, Cuba

Step back in time to when life moved at a slower pace, when dancing, singing and drinking was important, in short visit Cuba! Time seems to have stood still in Cuba, the cars are mostly large classic American models and the pastel colored colonial houses have remained the same for decades. But most of all you’ll be impressed by the people and their friendly, welcoming attitude. The nation of Cuba has endless pristine beaches, quaint cobble streets, a dynamic nightlife, Western-style beach resorts, and natural wonders. Enjoy the Spanish culture and delicious island food and visit the sites like Las Terrazas, Zapata National Park and Sierra Maestra. There are a myriad of activities on offer like diving, sailing, hiking, jeep safaris and dancing until dawn. What’s more this lush island paradise is good for budget honeymooners.
