Forget romantic walks along the Seine or floating down one of Venice's canals, these 13 vacations are for those couples that want more excitement from their holidays together.
Cruise around the Norwegian fjords
Norway is easily among the most beautiful countries in the world and the fjords are undoubtedly the jewel in its crown. The best and most adventurous way of exploring them is by kayak or a small boat. The cliffs here are very, very steep and some places are so out of the way they are unreachable unless you are on a small boat. The Fjords have everything you can wish for - beautiful coasts, waterfalls, picturesque slopes, incredible inlets, and rivers appropriate for paddlers of all levels.
Paddle-boarding in Gurabo
The once obscure surf-kayak-hybrid has exploded in popularity over the past few years. If you haven't tried it yet, you definitely should! If you and your partner like secluded laid-back spots, head to Gurabo where green and lush hillsides border the Carraizo Lake. It's about half an hour away from San Juan, which is a top adventurous honeymoon destination in of itself.
Go on a wildlife safari
Believe us when we say that few things can surpass seeing wild animals in their natural habitat. Kenya is one of the premier destinations for wild animal safaris. Known as one of the best large game reserves in the world, Maasai Mara offers a wide range of safaris - big cat, flamingos, elephant and rhino, as well as hot air balloon and sky diving safaris. The best time to visit Maasai Mara is between July and October during the wildebeest migration.

Tour ice caves
Head to the gorgeous Apostle Island National Park for winter beauty like you've never seen before. The ice caves are particularly stunning in February when the lake surface is frozen over and the lakeshore cliffs form a crimson red border to the stunning arctic landscape. However, ice caves are not strictly a winter-only phenomenon - you just have to now the right place to look.
