It’s love at first sight with these holiday experiences
It’s February, the month of love and we’ve come up with the best way to celebrate it – with travel!
One day you’re hunched over a laptop, crunching the numbers, typing and clicking away, and the next you’re rowing a boat with your partner under a pretty pink canopy of cherry blossoms. That’s what we, and each of our travellers love about going on a couple’s holiday. It’s a time to focus on each other and indulge in experiences that bring you closer.
To celebrate this month of love, we at Indiana Holidays, bring you a host of unique experiences that will reignite that spark and remind you why you belong together. And even if you prefer to travel solo or with friends, these experiences will definitely awaken your wanderlust. Remember, if you find these interesting, we’re just a call away.
The lowest point on earth – an experience high on everyone’s bucket list.
The extraordinarily high levels of salination in this lake is what gives it its name – the Dead Sea. Here you’ll find no aquatic life to marvel at, but it still makes for an experience like no other. Feel the water naturally pushing you upward as soon as you step in, and just a few steps later, you’ll find yourself on your back with arms outstretched, simply bobbing in the water. And if you’re with your partner, hold them close and drift away. If that doesn’t float your boat, try stepping onto the shore and slapping handfuls of mud onto yourself to experience its therapeutic properties. We learn that it relieves skin disorders, sinusitis and osteoarthritis. Sounds magical? Get in and find out.
The sky for your roof. The Northern Lights dancing for your entertainment.
If you have dreamt of a romantic night under the stars, then a night in a glass igloo will be straight out of that dream. With a crystal-clear view of the night sky, nature will treat you to a dance of the Northern Lights as you slip into a dream-like state. And in spite of it being as low as -30 degrees Celsius outside, the rooms are thermally charged and built to prevent any frosting on the glass to give you an uninterrupted view. But just because you’re spending a night in the wilderness, it doesn’t mean that you need to give up on the comforts you’re used to. Live in luxury and be treated to the best nature can offer.
Love is in the air and it’s doused in pink.
Said to symbolise innocence, purity, beauty, and new beginnings, cherry blossoms (or sakura) bloom to let you write new love stories. Streets in Tokyo are lined with this fleeting pink wonder. Gardens blush as they come to life. Countrysides transform into pretty picturesque landscapes. And pink champagne is even poured to celebrate its arrival. Are you ready to take a sip?
Celebrate your love like the world’s most famous lovers.
“O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou, Romeo?” These famous words from the world’s most beloved playwright is the reason why couples frequent this spot. In spite of Romeo & Juliet being a fictional love story, it is believed that Juliet would have stood on this balcony in Verona as she called out to her lover. That’s the reason this balcony sees many lovers cuddle up to each other, and lovelorn souls who leave their love letters and notes below the balcony. Want to add this to your Italian itinerary?
Immerse yourself in the thrilling world of sharks.
The good news is that you don’t have to be a certified diver to swim alongside these magnificent deep-sea wonders. Several cage diving tours in South Africa, Australia and Mexico can make your dreams come true. Get your blood pumping with the adrenaline rush of coming face to face with this Apex predator. It’s a once in a lifetime experience that will be etched into your memory forever. Up for it?
