It’s the month of romance, and there is no better time to embark on a trip with the love of your life. Over the past decade, we have travelled together to some of the most picturesque destinations in the world. We suggest you elevate your romantic getaways this year by choosing a destination that promises a mix of ultimate privacy, fascinating culture, and abundant natural beauty.
One of the countries we fell in love with this year was Montenegro. What the tiny country lacks in size, it makes up for in sights. Expect stunning coastal drives, beach-facing villas, and the freshest of seafood.
If you’re a beach lover, you can also head to Fiji for a unique island getaway. The country is a dazzling paradise garlanded with frangipanis, the palm-scented ocean, golden sunsets, and incredible snorkelling and diving opportunities. Exploring underwater worlds with your better half is an experience like no other.
If water sports are not your thing, consider a scenic road trip in Alberta, Canada, or South Island, New Zealand. Here, you will encounter some of the prettiest panoramas on the planet—from glittering blue lakes to lavender fields.
Closer home, you can relish some of the most luxurious glamping sites in the world, in Ladakh. Wake up to remote monasteries in Nubra Valley, or gaze endlessly at some of the world’s highest lakes.
If you have a penchant for remote lakes, you must also head to Bolivia for an unforgettable adventure on the Altiplano (‘high plain’). Red lagoons, alpacas, and flamingos are all found here. We love South America!
But if the region isn’t exclusive enough for you, head north to the Arctic on a lavish but intimate cruise. You will wake up to floating glaciers, icebergs, and polar bears in the wild every single day. This part of the world is bound to leave you gobsmacked. So this year, take a leap of faith, brush aside the banal, and plan a romantic getaway to an unexplored corner of the world.
