Adventure Ideas For Couples

There are endless ways to experience high adventure and thrill together as an adventurous couple. Here are some of our favorite ways to experience adventure together during your destination wedding: 


It can sometimes feel like there is an unlimited amount of hiking trails that you can experience all across the world. No matter where your destination wedding is, there is bound to be a thrilling hike nearby that leads to an incredible view. 

Discover a waterfall, a beautiful cliffside scene, or even an oasis. Whether your destination wedding is close to the jungle or in the snow-capped mountains, you are bound to find a scenic and exciting trail to explore together. 


If you are looking for high thrills and beautiful views, try ziplining through the jungles close to your resort. Many destination wedding venues in the Caribbean and Central America are near these incredible experiences. Get an unforgettable view of the ocean as you zip through the trees. 

Boat Tours

For destination weddings beside the water, try booking a scenic boat tour. Get a new perspective of your destination wedding venue from the ocean! You could take a motorboat with a tour guide or even experience the beauty of your destination from a kayak or canoe. 

Tastings and Food Tours

Perhaps you are looking for a different kind of wedding adventure: something just as thrilling, but perhaps an activity that doesn’t spike your adrenaline like a zipline might. In that case, try a wine tasting or a food tasting during your destination wedding festivities. Immerse yourself in local culture by trying delicious new foods and spirits.

Unique Wedding Activities 

For the adventurous couple looking for a more unique twist on their wedding experiences, there is no need to worry. Here are a few of our favorite once-in-a-lifetime adventure ideas for couples on their destination wedding or honeymoon. 


One unforgettable destination wedding activity that you can do with your partner is snorkeling. If you have a love of the ocean and marine life, definitely book a destination wedding near the waters where you can experience an incredible day under the sea. 

Swim through reefs with a guide and get up close to the beautiful world of the waters. You might even get the opportunity to meet some incredible sea creatures up close. 

Explore Ruins 

If you are a couple who enjoys hikes and history, look around for a wedding resort that rests close to the ruins of an ancient civilization. 

Spend a day walking through and exploring the history of cultures lost to time. Resorts like Dreams Tulum and Sandos Caracol Eco are sure to offer an incredible day to experience Mayan history. 

Skiing and Snow Sports

For a really unique twist on the conventional destination wedding, opt for a winter weather location. When most people think of a destination wedding, they likely think of the beach or a beautiful cruising location. 

We love these destination wedding locations, but you and your partner might be looking for something a little bit different. 

Enjoy an adventure into the mountains for your destination wedding and spend your time experiencing the thrills of snow sports and skiing. Get your adrenaline pumping with a scenic ascent to the top of the mountains and then feel the rush of almost flying back down to the bottom. 

Destinations for a Wedding Adventure

Looking for some inspiration? Here are just a few amazing destinations for your adventurous destination wedding: 

Puerto Rico

The adventurous couple is sure to have an incredible time visiting Puerto Rico. If you are looking for a trip along the waters, there are plenty of options for you. Experience the beauty of the island through a sightseeing kayak trip through the country’s pristine waters. 

If you are looking for a little bit more excitement out of your trip, hop into a helicopter for an aerial tour of the island. Or, stay down in the waters and try whitewater rafting through the fast-flowing rivers of the country. You are bound to have a blast, whether or not you choose to get splashed!


Another steamy location to enjoy, Jamaica is a fantastic place to celebrate your nuptials! This gorgeous location comes with a rich culture and spectacular beaches. There is so much to explore no matter which resort you choose. 

For something particularly adventurous, couples can go cliff jumping into pristine waters. This is an exhilarating experience, with adrenaline pumping through your veins. Perfect for those who want to mix a refreshing swim with their excitement!


Our third suggestion for an unforgettable and adventure-filled destination wedding is the beautiful city of Cancun. With plenty of resorts to choose from, there is no limit to what you can experience on this incredible island. Surrounded by water, you have the opportunities for boat tours and snorkeling expeditions. 

For a day of excitement and high thrill, take a visit to Xcaret Park, one of the greatest natural water parks in Mexico. Enjoy theme park rides, as well as a beautiful aquarium, aviary, and over fifty other special cultural attractions to experience. 

To take a step further into nature, take a trip to one of Mexico’s stunning cenotes, underground pools of pristine water with a natural skylight high above. Go for a hike and a refreshing swim for one of the most unique wedding activities you can find.
