Do you want the best and most exciting place to enjoy your life after your wedding? Plan to have your honeymoon in New Zealand
Honeymoon is undoubtedly one of the most cherished periods of one’s life; a time of intimacy and creating epic life-long memories together.
New Zealand’s secluded, exotic landscapes are romantic at the best of times, but in winter, the romance here really comes alive.
A sunset seems more vivid as you cozy beneath a blanket on the secluded beach; the stars seem brighter when you’re star-gazing from a steaming mineral pool; the view from the top of a mountain pass seems more passionate when the snow-capped peaks contrast with an emerald green rainforest supporting for that picture-perfect backdrop.
Below are five awesome reasons to spend your honeymoon in New Zealand during winter.
Beat the summer crowds
A honeymoon is for indulging in plenty of alone time together, so why share it with large numbers of strangers? On a winter honeymoon in New Zealand, you can hardly find the summer crowd, so finding charming places to enjoy your own sweet time embracing each other’s company requires no effort at all. Intimately experience world-famous attractions – the geothermal paradise of Rotorua, take a boat cruise in the Bay of Islands, or the World Heritage wonder of Milford Sound – without the crowds of high season.
Paradise for snow bunnies
Is your type of romance cuddling up on the couch, in front of a log-burning fire after an exciting day on the slopes? If so, New Zealand is dotted with wonderful ranges and world-class powder come winter. Our South Island features some of the best ski resorts in New Zealand, as well as off-piste intimate activities. Shred the slopes surrounded by vistas of azure lakes and mountain peaks by day, and soak in mineral pools beneath a star-studded sky by night.
Cool, crisp sunny days
Never let any second thoughts come into your mind worrying about missing out on any fun while planning your New Zealand winter honeymoon. We are pretty lucky in New Zealand to have a moderate climate. That means all places stay open year-round and being outdoors during the winter is possible and, most importantly, pleasurable. On a clear, sunny winter’s day, you might like to take a refreshing day hike on one of many of New Zealand’s walking tracks, or kayak to islands just off the coast – New Zealand is a year-round destination, and there’s plenty to do at all times of the year.
No high season prices
As the temperature goes down in New Zealand, prices go down as well. This is fantastic news for those who are honeymooning in winter. Indian weddings are undoubtedly beautiful and filled with love and fun but they are expensive as well, so saving some money on a New Zealand winter honeymoon could open the doorway to more options like – upgrade to that five-star ridge-top retreat for a couple of nights, extend your honeymoon in New Zealand for another week or splurge on wine and dine at a different top-notch restaurant each night.
Winter weather adds to New Zealand’s dreamy scenery
Winter calls for dramatic weather and, when you add that to the already dramatic New Zealand scenery, you mother nature at her most impressive. Torrential rain transforms a trickle of water into a great, cascading waterfall; a blanket of snow softens a stark volcanic environment; lingering mist creates a feeling of mystery amidst a deep, dark fiord. New Zealand in winter is making an amazing place and best experienced with your beloved.
