It’s something I have been repeating for years: Couples who travel together stay together. It is a great way to learn about your partner and how you work together, especially when things go wrong.
Instead of going to an all-inclusive resort, try something a little more adventurous. There are many adventures that will take your heart racing, whether it’s an Antartica expedition, New Zealand skydiving or scuba diving certification.

The Ion Hotel in Iceland is a destination unto itself. This eco-friendly hotel is known for its stunning views of the Northern Lights and is the ideal place to base yourself for romantic adventures in Iceland.
Safari in South Africa
Since I moved to South Africa, it has been a joy to travel outside of Cape Town and experience South Africa’s amazing safari destinations. One of the most romantic places on earth is the Lion Sands Ivory Lodge in Sabi Sand Game Reserve and the Treehouses in Sabi Sand Game Reserve. Royal Malewane is a luxury adventure that I love!
Your beau and you can go on a safari in Africa together, and enjoy some top-notch pampering as lions roar by the distance.
New Zealand offers an adrenaline rush
Skydive, jump from a bridge with BMX bikes, dive with sharks in Osprey Reef or face the rapids of Tully River to make your heart beat faster with the man who stole it. Queenstown is known as the “Adventure Capital of the World” because of the many adventures available in New Zealand.
Swim with sharks in French Polynesia
French Polynesia is known for its romance but it’s also great for adventurous couples! Although I have only been there twice, I was able to fall in love with my boyfriend on Bora Bora for my 30th Birthday.
You can swim with sharks at Rangiroa, Jet Ski in Bora Bora or Surf Teahupoo on Tahiti.
Take a Liveaboard Trip with Your Partner
You can go on a liveaboard dive together if you both love scuba diving. The underwater world is beautiful and you can do a digital detox. ).
It was an unforgettable experience to scuba dive in Raja Ampat with Samambaia Liveaboard.
You can both use the trip to earn your PADI certification if you are not yet certified. There are many liveaboard trips that take you past the top dive sites in the world.
Take a hike around Cinque Terre
Numerous lovers have fallen in love with the Via dell’Amore, or Path of Love, on the Italian Riviera. It isn’t in perfect condition due to a flood that occurred a few years ago.
I would recommend the Blue Path or High Path, which are both nearby. Both offer stunning views of the Italian Riviera. Although the High Path is more strenuous, it is also less crowded.
Explore Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula
Did you know that Mexico is home to the largest underwater cave system in the world? This incredible spot spans 216 miles.
Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula is a paradise for beach bums as well as divers. You can spend your vacation swimming with whale sharks at Isla Holbox, snorkeling in Akumal with sea turtles, or diving Mexico’s cenotes.
Take a hot air balloon ride
Hot air balloon rides are romantic. For destinations, the famous Cappadocia, Turkey is a great choice. What about a hot-air balloon safari?
It will be a breath-taking experience to see Namibia and Kenya from the air.
For a romantic, adventurous and unforgettable experience, change your perspective!
Namibia Road Trip
Do you prefer to stay on the ground? Get off the balloon and take to the open road!
Namibia is unique. You can travel to Namibia with the wind in your hair. This road trip will take you past shipwrecks and arid landscapes as well as giant sand dunes, wildlife, and Etosha National Park.
The Northern Lights are on the horizon
A romantic and adventurous experience for couples is to see the Northern Lights together. You can plan your romantic rendezvous in Europe during the winter months and travel to Iceland or Finland.
You don’t have to fly transatlantic, so head north to Canada and Alaska.
Book an Antartica Cruise
Do you want to spend two weeks without internet? Do you want to spend long nights drinking hot chocolate under the stars while you wait?
Your S.O. Cruise to the Antartica and take your S.O. You will set sail from Argentina to explore the land of giant penguin colonies and icebergs that are larger than buildings.
Together, Sail Around the World
There is nothing more romantic and epic than jumping into a sailboat to explore the sky. A boat can be a great place to reconnect and go on amazing adventures you will remember for many years.
