Honeymooning In Your Twilight Years

If you’ve been lucky enough to find love for a second or perhaps third time around, you might be looking for a no-fuss, relaxing honeymoon that’s organised with your stage in life in mind. Your choices certainly aren’t limited to the UK, it’s easy to take escorted trips all over the world with many different tour operators. We give you a few ideas to spark your imagination.

Autumn in New England

If you’re happy to brave airport check-in queues a trip to the USA to enjoy New England’s fall foliage is a wonderful way to spend a honeymoon. With coach tour operators covering this region comprehensively, you’ll get to take in the beauty of the turning leaves while someone else does all the driving and map reading. A tour like this is ideal if you’re not as mobile as you once were since you can do as much or as little walking as you feel able.

Norwegian Fjords

By the time you reach your twilight years you’ve probably been and done the traditional beach holiday and got the T-shirt several times over. Now the pressure of returning to the UK with a tan better than your neighbours’ has lifted, why not head off to Norway and take in the stunning sights of the fjords and mountain springs. With bright, clear days and the freshest air you’ll ever find, Norway is an amazing place to gather memories to bring home to your loved ones. Taking a cruise is one of the best ways to see this part of the world, and you’ll be as relaxed as you want to be.

Romantic Italy

Another good option for a coach tour is Italy, where you can hand over worries about manic Italian driving to someone who knows the ropes. There are so many sights to see in Italy, from bustling Rome to romantic Florence, but the great thing about this diverse country is that you can also get the idea of real Italy simply by sipping a coffee at a street cafe. There’s no need to pound the pavements of to enjoy Italian culture and style.

French Fancy

If you enjoy fine wine and delicious foods, why not take a scenic train journey through France on your honeymoon? Escorted rail holidays are easy to find online and can be the perfect way to take in miles and miles of scenery in one trip. Avoid road works and traffic jams and speed your way down through France to beautiful Avignon or Nice. Each town you’ll visit will have something different and special to recommend it, and France has no shortage of history and culture to keep you busy.

Your honeymoon should be a special time, and you can make it even better by handing over responsibility for the logistics to someone else. From initial ideas to complete itinerary, you can be as hands on or hands off as you like. Life begins in your twilight years so take advantage of all the fantastic specialist tour operators that know how to show you a good time on you honeymoon.
