4 Sustainable Honeymoon Destinations For Tree-Hugging Couples


We know dreams of an ethical safari through Kenya’s wilderness are a little outside most couples’ honeymoon budgets. But that doesn’t mean you have to abandon thoughts of an eco-friendly vacation to kick off your marriage in green style. Here are four countries with prime offerings for the tree-hugging couple. And besides the trees getting some love, there’s plenty of romance for you two as well.

1. Explore Grenada.

Grenada might be one of the greenest islands in the Caribbean. There are lush jungles and waterfalls within walking distance of the capital, St. George’s. The island is a big producer of chocolate, and you can sample small batch homemade cocoa at the local chocolate museum for some ethical romance.

2. Road trip through Slovenia.

The Slovenian Alps and green foothills are home to beautiful lakes, resort towns and wild parks. It’s perfect for a road trip with lots of stops for hiking. Even capital city Ljubljana is eco-friendly (it won the European Union’s Greenest Capital award in 2016) and a stroll along the river feels like a more private, quaint Venice.

3. Hike in Colombia.

Colombia has the Amazon Rainforest, the Andes Mountains and the Andean Cloud Forest. And the country’s Lost City trek is a sustainable alternative to overtouristed Machu Pichu in Peru. Avoid the crowds and soak up time with just bae.

4. Stand on top of the world in Norway.

Ah, Scandinavia. There’s no happier way to begin a life with your sweetheart than in one of the happiest regions in the world. And in Norway, you can climb to crazy heights with your new spouse, whether you enjoy a coffee overlooking Bergen or a trek to cliffside Preikestolen.
