The month of July is part of the summer in the northern hemisphere, and it’s a perfect time for a wedding and honeymoon. Chances are you will have a warm and sunny day where you can take lots of beautiful photos outdoors, together with your loved one and your guests.
Once the entire thing is over, you can then just go and relax with your spouse in a beautiful place during your honeymoon. There are many amazing countries you can go to, and today we will discuss about some of the best honeymoon destinations to visit in July:
1. The Cook Islands
This amazing exotic destination includes 15 islands that seem out of this world. They combine white sandy beaches with crystal clear waters and volcanic mountain sceneries that look like those from Jurassic Park. The locals are charming and friendly, and you can also find plenty of secluded beaches to enjoy time with your loved one.
It’s the dry season here in July, so the weather will be perfect. It won’t be too hot and it won’t be humid either. It will be warm enough to lay on the beach and get a tan, but also cool enough to go on hikes and enjoy the Rarotonga island. This place will look stunning, since the rainy season is over and it is now full with lush vegetation.
If sipping on a cocktail on the beach is not really your thing, and you prefer a more adventurous vacation, then you can head to the African continent, in the country of Kenya. Here you will be able to go on incredible safari experiences and witness wild animals that you can only see on TV, right in their natural habitat.
July is the dry season, so you will have warm and dry weather, just right to go on outdoor trips and witness lions, cheetahs, giraffes and many more other incredible creatures. The wild life is very active during this time of the year, and you can even witness the Great Migration. This is an incredible spectacle where more than 1 million wildebeest arrive here, coming from Tanzania.
This beautiful country located in the Indian Ocean is composed out of 115 islands and is also the smallest country by population on the African continent with just around 90,000 residents.
The islands look amazing and have crystal clear waters, and white sandy beaches where you can lay in the sun, enjoy a cocktail or a splendid sunset. This is an idyllic destination for a honeymoon, and it’s not as expensive as other places either. Each island has its own character, so make sure to visit as many as possible.
It’s the dry season here in July, so the weather will be just right: warm and dry, instead of hot and wet like on the rainy season. The wild life is very active and you will be able to enjoy plenty of amazing creatures, including whale sharks. Scuba diving and snorkeling are popular activities around here, and will allow you to view the amazing underwater world.
So far we seen places with incredible exotic beaches, and others where you can witness the wild life of Africa through a Safari journey. But there is one place that combines both of these experiences, and that place is Tanzania.
This amazing country includes the Ngorongoro Crater, which has the highest density of lions in Africa, the Serengeti National Park where you can see the Great Migration of more than one million wildebeest, but also the Zanzibar region with its incredible beaches.
The weather in July is just right: it’s dry and warm and the entire nature is green and alive after the heavy rains have ended. So you can go on plenty of hikes or safari experiences, but also be able to lay on a beach in Zanzibar and sip on a cocktail.
We get it that not everyone is interested in just laying in the sun and getting a tan. Some people simply prefer to explore mountains and would rather endure a bit of cold than too much warmth. For those people, the Canadian regions of British Columbia and Alberta are just perfect.
They include huge mountains, beautiful lakes and thick alpine forests. But you also have the city of Vancouver nearby, which has plenty of amazing things to visit. Canada is known for its very cold weather, but the month of July is the warmest. So there will be plenty of sunshine and blue skies that will allow you to go on amazing trips and hikes. The wild life is very active as well, and you might be able to spot some wonderful creatures along the way.
6. New Zealand
This is another amazing destination for those who would rather explore the nature and the mountains than lay on a sunny beach. The country includes splendid mountains, epic glaciers and beautiful lakes. Not to mention the Maori culture which will definitely captivate you.
You can also go skydiving in Queenstown, take a dip in the geothermal baths of Rotorua or enjoy the unique café culture of Wellington. If you make it to Milford Sound, this is a good place to admire seals and dolphins in their natural habitat, and at Kaikoura you might spot the amazing humpback whales.
It’s winter in New Zealand in July, but don’t worry because winter here is quite different than what you are used to. The temperatures range between 5 and 15 degrees Celsius, so it’s not that cold and you can go hiking and exploring. An amazing place worth visiting is the Franz Josef Glacier, with its icy crevasses and amazing caves.
