There is certainly much to do in Greece, a beautifully serene country.
It is a fantastic idea to choose Greece for your honeymoon with its romantic diversity. Here is a list of exciting and peaceful activities from which to choose, depending on what you newlyweds decide to do each day.

Island hopping between the magnificent Greek islands is an exciting bonding experience with your partner. You’ve got Crete, Hydra, Mykonos, Kefalonia, and Naxos to name a few. Grab a Greece Catamaran rental to explore them all!
The Panagiotis ship was being used to smuggle contraband cigarettes in 1980. It was shipwrecked when the Greek navy intervened and remains on the Zakynthos coast, now for your newly-wedded viewing pleasure.
Additionally, why not try other water-based activities with your new spouse? There’s deep-sea diving, snorkeling, cave explorations, night swimming, scuba diving, windsurfing, or even cliff jumping. These adrenalin-fueled activities are an excellent bonding experience.
Wine Or Olive Oil Tasting
Each dazzling and antique winery in Crete is special – Douloufakis has a highly knowledgeable staff, and Lyrarakis has an idyllic Lassithi mountain view.
51% of Greeks speak English, learning the language from preschool. Therefore, you’ll likely not run into problems consulting locals for guidance on their favorite winery. However, if you do find yourself struggling, there are ways to communicate better with the locals.
Olive oil tasting is a slightly different option in Corfu. 500-year-old olive orchards envelop the olive mills in which you can learn about production and harvesting.
Exploring Greek History In Athens
Athens, the deeply cultural coastal city in Greece, is drenched in ancient Greek mythology. Athens is home to many ancient Greek landmarks.
History enthusiasts will enjoy visiting the Temple of Zeus, dedicated to the Greek mythological king of the Gods. Meanwhile, the Temple of Poseidon, dedicated to the deity of the sea, was built in the 5th century BC. And is also worth a visit.
Greek theatre enthusiasts can catch a ballet, opera, or famous Greek tragedy at the massive Odeon of Herodes Atticus in Acropolis. This amphitheater will surely take your breath away, especially in October at the Athens Festival!
Watching The Sunset In Santorini
Many honeymooners visit Greece for the famous romantic sunsets in Santorini.
Dine at Aktaion or Selene for traditional Greek cuisine and a candle-lit dinner. You’ll both be encapsulated by the view of the rock cliffs set against the colorful evening sky. And entranced by the purple water from a build-up of volcanic ash.
Escape the hustle and bustle and follow the trail from the village of Megalochori towards the tiny Chapel of Agios Nikolaos. Nearby you will find the secluded and not well-known Heart of Santorini cave, with a cave entrance that resembles a heart lying on its side.
Riding An ATV Around Santorini
Your feet can take you on many adventures to stunning locations. But you can make the journey easier and safer with a licensed and insured ATV (all-terrain vehicle).
The rough unpaved paths from Imerovigli to Oia in Santorini are not accessible by public transport. However, you shouldn’t let that stop you from an unmissable romantic adventure.
Ride freely, but carefully, to the seamless white architecture and domed churches in Oia during the day. And watch the small city turn gold at sunset.
Stop along the fun journey at unique caves, wineries, and exquisite caldera views.
Horseback Riding In Kefalonia
We’ve all watched those films that portray beaming couples’ slow-motion horseback riding. Visit the Bavarian or Kefalonia horse riding stables to experience it for yourselves.
Happy, eager, and well-cared-for horses will carry you gently through the untouched Kefalonian landscape. Kefalonia, the largest Ionian island, includes pebbled beaches, hills, and the countryside.
No riding experience is needed with your tour guide and all the necessary safety equipment provided. However, you do have the option to ride faster than a stroll if you’re familiar with horse riding.
Exploring Nature in Lesbos
A nature-passionate couple also has a chance to ignite their love for the land and each other on the island of Lesbos.
The Kalloni Salt Pans are the perfect place to bird-watch. Engage in some fun competition with your love and see who can locate the largest variety of birds. A colorful array of birds such as flamingoes, bee-eaters, pratincoles, and red-footed falcons all inhabit these salt pans.
Also in Lesbos is the island’s famous Petrified Forest of strangely stone-like fossilized plant and tree remains. Intriguing preserved fossils within the tree trunks are sure to capture many an inquisitive mind.
