It’s always heart-warming for us to hear from couples that have met on tour. Bringing like-minded people together through their shared interest in exploring is at the heart of what we do. Whilst we can’t take credit for uniting Sophie and Deiniol, they did choose to get engaged at Iguazu Falls whilst on tour with us last year which prompted us to think about the most unique places for adventurers to pop the question. To make that special moment a truly memorable experience, a little wanderlust rather than a candlelit dinner could be a more romantic gesture, especially as far as we are concerned. Considering getting down on one knee and looking for ideas? Think about what’s on your partner’s bucket list and for inspiration, here’s our top 7 most unique places to get engaged:
Under the Northern Lights
During the winter months in the Arctic, you can watch the symphony of dazzling colours illuminate the sky – the aurora borealis. Romance is guaranteed when you have one of nature’s most spectacular moments as a backdrop. Not to mention the stunning scenery that a trip to Iceland or Scandinavia offers.
Among the pagodas of Bagan
Bagan’s pagoda peaks rise almost organically from among the tree tops. The plains that encompass the ancient city and sacred temples are awe-inspiring and a visit makes for a truly unique day that you will always remember. Get there for sunrise or stay for sunset so that you can get some fantastic snaps of the orange glow of the sky and beautiful Bagan at its best.
In a hot air balloon over the Serengeti
A safari in the sky with nothing but wild open savannah below. An exhilarating and captivating experience made all the more special if you decide to pop the question.
On Lake Bled
A picture-perfect setting complete with a church perched on its own islet and the Julian Alps in the background. Take a private boat for that special moment with just the two of you and explore the stunning scenery reflected over calm emerald waters.
At the Machu Picchu citadel
It’s every travellers dream to see this iconic lost city with breath-taking views. You’ll be up among the clouds, marveling at the Incan stonework left behind in the ruins – a magical place to propose to the one you love.
Make a proposal with impact by getting down on one knee on this 16th century rebuilt Ottoman architectural beauty. Stari Mostar (Old Bridge) is one of the country’s most recognizable landmarks. Medieval Mostar in itself inspires plenty of romance, so be sure to explore the many other hidden gems that this Balkan city has to offer.
White water rafting, a canyon swing or river cruise, the number of activities in Livingstone are almost endless, especially if you and your partner are adrenaline junkies. What better adventure is there than a journey to the heart of Africa to one of the world’s most impressive natural wonders to cement your love for adventure and each other by getting engaged?
