If you’ve got a big anniversary coming up, what could be more romantic than whisking your love away for an exotic escape. These destinations are sure to delight.
For a snowy adventure, Norway offers stunning natural beauty and world-class luxury. A trip to see the Northern Lights will without doubt be the highlight of this magical trip, where you can also expect to go tobogganing and hiking. Spend a couple of nights in atmospheric Trondheim for a glimpse of Viking life, before journeying on to Oslo’s green belt. Stop by secluded Songsvann lake, to enjoy hiking, fishing and swimming set amongst the beautiful Norwegian forest.
Bangladesh is an up and coming holiday destination for couples thanks to its romantic beaches and relative seclusion. Begin your holiday in Bangladesh by exploring the highlands, famed for stunning scenery and cooler temperatures. Rangamati is particularly noted for traditional architecture, or Nilgiri Hill for unrivalled views. No romantic getaway to Bangladesh would be complete without a few days lazing on Mermaid Beach. Plan your day around the sensational sunsets and feel the stress slip away as you and your love unwind.
The Algarve is much closer to home but packs no less of a punch as a gorgeous couples destination. There are many activities to take part in together and stunning scenic locations to visit. Vilamoura is the perfect choice if you want to avoid the crowds and enjoy some peaceful luxury. Check into a swanky resort to be waited on hand and foot, indulge in massages, long meals and cocktail hours. Alternatively, for more adventure, Lagos is a buzzing town with impressive surf. Rent a pretty Algarve villa on the coast and spend your days learning to ride the waves, then your evenings are free to hop from bar to bar sampling the local delicacies along the way.
Few places in the world are more romantic than Tulum, Mexico. With lush, tropical jungle to hike, stunning beaches to relax on and staggering luxury resorts, you’ll never want to come home. After a morning of nature spotting, head to the beach to soak up some rays. Back at your room, enjoy a couples massage for the ultimate holiday indulgence. Feeling ultra-chilled, begin the evening with a sundowner cocktail on your private balcony before heading out for a sumptuous Mexican feast as you are serenaded by a live band.
Laid-back Gili Air in Indonesia is the perfect location for a romantic couples getaway. As soon as you set foot on the white sand beach you’ll feel instantly relaxed. Check into a beach-front villa sunset side and you’ll barely need to leave your terrace all holiday. If you do feel like getting out and about, rent bicycles and explore the tiny island. Or better yet, hop aboard a snorkel boat and prepare to be swimming with turtles, reef fish and enjoying the beautiful, unspoilt coral the area has to offer. Dinner will of course be catch of the day, with some wonderfully inexpensive local beer and a few songs around a campfire at one of the local bars, before stumbling back to your villa for some much needed sleep.
These destinations offer an escape from the routine, what could be more perfect to mark your upcoming anniversary?
