8. Snow Bound

A snowy getaway is perfect for the couples who love cuddling together under warm blankets with mugs of steaming hot choclolate as they watch the stars or the northern lights. However they are equally as fun for adventurous couples who live for the adrenaline rush of cross‐country skiing or riding in a horse‐driven sledge.

9. Safari

A must for lovers of romance and of nature everywhere, a safari getaway is an experience designed to be shared. See some of the most fascinating animals in the world in some of the most jawdropping locations—cheetahs sprinting across the sun dried African plains, zebras grazing in the grassy savannas, and herds of buffalo that stretch as far as the eye can see.
