Honeymoon, the word is intoxicating. It is a word that means celebration of life, the celebration of marital union: the celebration of the biggest moment of many adults’ lives. Some dream of days soaking the sun at a luxurious resort, some dream of solitude in the mountains, some dream of the powerful call of the sea, some dream of relaxation, and some dream of adventure. This is why honeymoon destinations are endless in number, one for everybody, with each one special, and each one unique.

Travel companies have been offering honeymoon packages since time immemorial, providing the ideal setting for the celebration, the once in a lifetime vacation,  the symbol of perfection. Leaving the nitty-gritty of the planning, coordinating, and execution of travel itineraries to the experts, many happy couples are glad to go on honeymoon vacations especially designed for them, avoiding any tension, and enjoying a smooth and hassle-free holiday that they would cherish for the rest of their lives.

A brief look at typical honeymoon destinations show us the common factor in them all, something magical, something intense. Be it off-shore destinations such as Australia, Bali, Manali, Malaysia, Maldives, Mauritius, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Switzerland, Tahiti, Bora Bora, and Thailand, or those closer home like Manali, Shimla, Nainital, Andamans, Lakshadweep, Kerala, Goa, Pondicherry, Darjeeling, Kashmir valley or Rajasthan, each has something that combines natural beauty with luxury, and relaxation with adventure.

While the typical honeymoon destinations offer picturesque and soulful honeymoon vacations, few adventure destinations are preferred by a few adventure enthusiasts for their special journey together. They choose to undertake adventure trips during their honeymoon vacation for that extra adrenaline rush and the exhilarating feeling that comes from sharing a rare experience like bungee jumping, snorkelling, scuba diving or parasailing with that special person. For such travellers, the ideal honeymoon destinations are those places that are known adventure hubs.

No matter what the preference, to plan perfect honeymoon vacations, it’s important that details of all honeymoon destinations are studied before zeroing in on the final choice. While pre-arranged honeymoon packages are offered to most popular honeymoon destinations within the country and to foreign lands, customised itineraries to honeymoon destinations are created by few travel companies. It is very important that a reliable agent be chosen to book honeymoon vacations as this journey is a lifetime experience that cannot be replicated in any other holiday taken after this golden period of a budding relationship.
