After tying the knot, escape to the great outdoors for a honeymoon filled with adventure and relaxation. A glamping honeymoon is ideal for adventurous newlyweds looking to explore, stargaze, and snuggle up by a campfire. You’ll feel right at home with modern amenities inside an upscale canvas tent, without sacrificing access to national parks and landmarks primed for exploring. We’ve curated the ultimate outdoor honeymoon guide to ensure you and your spouse have an unforgettable experience as you celebrate and start your married life together.
Choose Your Destination
The first step in planning the perfect outdoor honeymoon is deciding on a destination. Whether you want to go on exploratory hikes, observe wildlife, or see stunning views, national parks are some of the best outdoor honeymoon destinations in the U.S. for couples seeking relaxation and adventure. Waking up to beautiful mountain vistas and cuddling under starry night skies outside of some of the world’s most noteworthy outdoor destinations is sure to spark newlywed romance.
For honeymooners looking to explore Montana’s Big Sky Country, Yellowstone National Park is a one-of-a-kind destination – with geysers, hot springs, waterfalls, and unique wildlife, it has so much to offer! On the other side of the country, Acadia National Park is the perfect option for lovebirds looking to explore Maine’s beautiful coastline. With dramatic shorelines, scenic drives, and picturesque mountains, this national park is a great spot to visit after your nuptials in the summer or fall.
Unplug and Unwind
Planning a wedding can be stressful, and there’s no better way to relax and decompress after the big day than escaping into nature and leaving your digital devices behind. While unwinding on your outdoor glamping honeymoon, try disconnecting from the outside world so you can bask in the beauty of nature and be present with your partner. With all the wedding planning behind you, this is the perfect time to focus on deepening your connection with each other, and with the beauty of the nature surrounding you. Under Canvas offers the perfect way to unplug due to its intentional opt-out of WiFi around our camps.
Plan a Romantic Outing
Whether you prefer a challenging hike or a romantic walk with a view, honeymooning outdoors offers an unbeatable opportunity to explore nature and create lasting memories. Add some romance to your adventure by packing a picnic. Bring a bottle of wine, delicious treats, and a comfy blanket with you on your excursion and enjoy the scenery together. With nature as your backdrop, it’s all you need for an unforgettably romantic outing. Snag your grab-n-go snacks and to-go lunch from the lobby at Under Canvas before heading out for your adventure.
After the sun goes down, embark on a stargazing tour to take in the awe-inspiring astrology above you. Or, after a long day of excursions, relax and snuggle up under a warm blanket to watch the night sky for shooting stars. Without light pollution from cities, the extra dark night sky surrounding the nation’s national parks offers unrivaled access to celestial sights and constellations normally unseeable by the naked eye.
Date Night Dining
There’s nothing more romantic than dining with your love under a blanket of stars. End each day of your glamping honeymoon with a starlit dinner under the expansive night sky. Enjoy a delicious fireside meal with locally-sourced ingredients during your stay at an Under Canvas location, and toast to your forever adventure partner with a delicious cocktail or hot chocolate in the crisp outdoor air. And don’t forget to roast up a few s’mores by the campfire! Cozy up next to the flames and reflect on the day’s activities and the start of your biggest adventure yet.
There’s no better way to create lasting memories with your new spouse than a glamping trip. Under Canvas’ safari-inspired canvas tents are equipped with plush linens and king-size beds, which allows you to enjoy a luxurious outdoor honeymoon without compromising your access to the outdoors.
