A honeymoon should be a special time to connect with you and your newlywed partner. A honeymoon doesn’t mean the same thing to everyone, for some it may be a tropical location with a gorgeous beach, and for others, it might mean backpacking!

We’ve compiled a list of a few great ideas of more adventurous destinations around the globe, and if you’ve done any of these or have other suggestions, please let us know!

  1. Backpacking:
    This might sound terrifying for a honeymoon activity, but backpacking can be a fantastic adventure! It’s also a great way to travel pretty cheaply; you could stay in hostels, Air B&B or hotels along your journey, whichever you prefer. A few top destinations for backpacking might be:
    Europe
    Thailand
    Southern Asia
    South America
    Australia & New Zealand.
    All of these places have many wonderful things to see and lots of adventures just waiting to happen!
  2. Hiking/Camping:
    The destinations here are pretty much endless, nearly every corner of the world has beautiful camping locations and amazing hikes that are just waiting to be conquered. We tried to narrow it down to a few particularly beautiful locations, but we’ll leave your mind to wander on this one:
    Canada
    United States
    Iceland
    Norway
    Peru
    Nepal
    New Zealand
    Costa Rica
  3. Festivals/Concerts:
    Maybe you are a music lover and your dream honeymoon revolves around a rock fest, or maybe you’ve always wanted to experience Oktoberfest in Munich – there are plenty of awesome trips to take around the globe that might be perfect for your getaway!
  4. Volunteering:
    There are lots of great organizations that need volunteers for different projects around the world! Depending on how long you want your honeymoon to be, this might be a really unique opportunity to spend time in a remote orphanage in India or perhaps help build a school in Africa.
  5. Cruising:
    Do you want all the adventure with less of the fuss of planning? Consider taking a cruise! You have a wide variety of options and locations to choose from.
    Hot and tropical? Try the Caribbean!
    More scenic? Try Alaska!
    Historical? Try a European River Cruise!
    Hot and Historical? Try a Mediterranean Sea Cruise!

These types of trips might not be to everyone’s taste, but that’s okay! No matter where or what you decide to do on your honeymoon, just remember to make it a special occasion for you and your partner.

Macassar Ebony - Southeast Asia: A beautiful dark red to black toned wood. Great with vibrant colours like turquoise or malachite.

Grey Maple
Sugar Maple - Canada: We use the same maple as our regular maple listing, but achieve a beautiful greyed colour by soaking the wood in iron acetate to achieve a weathered silver look.
Santos Rosewood
South America (Brazil and Bolivia): Not a true rosewood, and the same wood as our Pau Ferro, we use the santos name to differentiate the more red tone of this wood from the yellow tones of our Pau Ferro.
Pau Ferro
South America (Brazil and Bolivia): The same as our Santos Rosewood (although not a true rosewood), we use the Pau Ferro name to differentiate the more yellow tone of this wood from the red tones of our Santos.

American Elm
Eastern to Midwest United States: Tones range from a toasted caramel to light creamy white in the sapwood
Hawaiian Golden Koa
Hawaii: Vibrant golden tones ranging to reddish hues make this one of our customers most favorite wood choices.
American Black Walnut
Eastern United States: Walnut ranges from a pale brown to a deep chocolate brown and every shade between. Can have color casts of yellow, grey, purple or red.
Elm Burl
Western Europe: The grain in a burled tree is caused by some form of stress or injury to the tree, but creates a pattern that is beautiful to look at. Colors range from medium to dark brown with small figures of color patterns changing throughout.
Canadian Maple
Sugar Maple - Canada: Light and bright in color, our sugar maple comes from Canada and is a beautiful warm creamy white tone ranging to a light honey shade.

None of the woods we use are listed in the CITES appendices as being threatened or endangered. Macassar Ebony is listed on the IUCN Red List as being vulnerable due to a decline in it’s natural range. 

We source most of our woods from craftspeople and artisans with pieces too small for their own use. In this way we feel we can create beautiful rings without contributing to their decline.
