Is it adventure, adrenalin, intense bonding experiences...or just the romance of being in the Alps together?
Over the last few years we have seen more and more newly weds choosing to honeymoon with Undiscovered Mountains. It seems the traditional romantic retreat to an exotic beach doesn't quite cut it for everyone!
We've had Brendan and Orla ice climbing, snowshoeing and building igloos, Jane and Douglas and Philippe and Maryanna summiting the famous Undiscovered Mountains 'Love Mountain', Les Rouies 3589m - famous as it is where Bernard and I (Undiscovered Mountains head guide and director) fell in love!
We have had Chris and Rowena testing out their head for heights on the advanced Via Ferrata, horse riding and white water rafting and next week, Phil and Catherine will be paragliding, mountain biking, tree climbing and horse riding!
Love is all about sharing experiences and happy moments together and creating memories that will bond you for life. Maybe having an adventure together is a sure way to enhance your already heightened emotions!
Imagine the sensation of sitting on top of the mountain with your loved one in a state of slight altitude high with pheromones pumping and spectacular views spread out in front of you, or the romance of riding off together into unchartered alpine territory on horseback.
It is true that when you push yourself to your physical limit, experience that surge of adrenalin as you overcome your fear of heights, laugh hysterically as you bounce down white water rapids.... you are discovering and sharing raw, intimate emotions. All the material you need for an intense bonding experience and life long memories to share together!
Or is it the possibility of a romantic spa with a glass of champagne, a relaxing massage and gourmet french cuisine that is all the more appreciated after a day in the mountains, that attracts our newly weds??
Where did you go for your honeymoon? What makes the perfect honeymoon? We'd love to have your thoughts!
The cycling season in the Alps runs from May to November, with some of the higher altitude areas cloRead More
