Outdoor activities for a mountain honeymoon destination are sure to please and to make your vacation memorable. Pick a season that contains the activities you enjoy to find the perfect mountain honeymoon season for you.
Winter Wonderland Honeymoon
A winter honeymoon in the mountains conjures up visions of snow-covered peaks and lounging in front of a roaring fire. But, if you prefer more active outside activities, winter offers a mountain of snow and the exhilaration of skiing down progressively challenging slopes.
If you're feeling more adventurous, try snowboarding or cross-country skiing. Lace up those skates to race across the pond or bundle up to make snow angels or cuddle inside an igloo made for two. To end the night, wrap up for warmth with a sleigh ride for two before jumping into the hot tub.
Spring Honeymoon Memories
With spring comes the melting of the glacial ice and the beginning of waterfalls. Hike through the lower elevations of the mountains, camera in hand, as you shoot photographs of the first leaves of spring, young birds, sweet smelling flowers, and the majestic waterfalls you may encounter. On higher elevations, try snowshoeing across the trails or some last minute skiing.
Summer Heat for Newlyweds
A mountain retreat offers a refreshing change from the hot sticky temperatures of the city. The pristine rivers and lakes provide spots for a cooling dip as you explore the mountain trails on horseback, bikes, or hand-in-hand. Or, better yet, climb up the trail by the waterfalls to drench yourself underneath while you explore the caves inside. A fish caught by your own hands makes a delicious dinner as you grill it up and watch the sunset.
Autumn Equals Mountain Honeymoon Memories
As the summer warmth fades, the mountains continue to delight. It is berry season so grab a bucket and pick some berries for dessert. Or, capture the changing colors of the leaves as they begin to fall. A hay ride with some fresh apple pie or cider brings a close to the perfect mountain honeymoon.
