Welcome to our very first Envago blog, where we bring you the latest on adventures around the globe! Today we’re talking honeymoons, and we reckon there are MANY newlyweds out there who would rather be out experiencing the world than lying on a sun-lounger all day. Here are out top 5 honeymoon adventures!
1. Cruising the Erg Chebbi Dunes in Morocco
Captivating stars above you, vibrant orange sands beneath you, cruise the Erg Chebbi Dunes in Saharan Morocco atop your Arabian camel, known as a dromedary. The Erg Chebbi dunes are one of Morocco’s two ergs, or huge sand blown dunes that surround the villages of Merzouga and Hassi Labied. Watching the sunrise or the sunset as you trek the sands is an experience that you will never forget.
2.Gorilla trekking in the Republic of Uganda
One of the most beautiful countries in Africa, Uganda is an emerging travel destination. In the Bwindi National Park with its mist covered mountains and rainforest, trek to see the endangered mountain gorilla on a challenging course headed by a ranger. Around half of the world’s population of mountain gorilla live at the Bwindi national park, but you may also be lucky enough to spot baboons, chimpanzees, elephants and antelopes. You can hike the 3667 meters of the Sabinyo volcano to the summit shared by three countries, Congo, Uganda and Rwanda. Nearby you will find accommodation for all budgets, from luxury lodges to campsites.
3.The UNESCO world heritage Chagunarayan temple in Nepal
A true bucket list destination, Nepal offers stunning natural beauty with once in a lifetime experiences. Begin in Kathmandu as you wind through the mountains to the village of Nagarkot, reputedly the best spot for views of the central Himalayan ranges from its view tower. From here, your five hour trek to Chagunarayan begins, passing traditional Nepalese settlements before arriving in the small Newari village to visit Changu Narayan Temple, the oldest temple in Kathmandu and a UNESCO world heritage site.
4.Reindeer sledding to see the northern lights in Norway
Seeing the fabled glowing lights, known as Aurora after the Roman goddess of dawn, is a true wonder. Both mysterious and unpredictable, the northern lights can be seen in all of their rainbow glory in Norway. And to benefit from the full Norwegian experience, you can take a reindeer sled as you explore the beautiful Dankarvågvatn Nature Reserve, take in a traditional Sami village as you join in with a Sami folk song known as a Joik and taste Bidos, a traditional stew in the cosy surroundings of a Lavvu tent.
