Although the quintessential image of a honeymoon may be relaxing on golden beaches with your loved one, staying in luxurious accommodation and doing little more each day than soaking up the sun and sipping on cocktails, that picture isn't for everyone.
If you would much rather get out and about, see some of the country you're visiting and try some new activities, you'll be relieved to know there is a host of adventure honeymoons on offer.
To give you a small taste of the kinds of things you can get up to, here are a few suggestions to make a honeymoon to Peru a break to remember (while also allowing you to relax after planning your wedding, of course).
Cruising on Lake Titicaca
Lake Titicaca is the world's highest navigable lake, sitting some 3,800 m above sea level. It spans an impressive 8,560 sq km and is a truly amazing sight to behold. Cruising on this vast body of water is certainly an unusual way to unwind after your wedding, but you're bound to feel the stress of planning your big day fade away as you drift further out on to the water.
Local fishermen move around the lake on rafts made from totora reeds, which grow around the shoreline. If you want to experience a slice of their traditional way of life, see if you can get a ride to one of the islands on one of these unique vessels. There are motorboats for hire too, but where's the fun in that?
Flying over the Nazca Lines
The Nazca Lines are one of Peru's most famous historical attractions - and also one of its most mysterious. These amazing drawings that collectively cover 50 sq km of desert can only be fully appreciated from 1,500 ft above the ground, yet they were created by the Nazca culture in around 300 BC.
Taking a flight together will be a romantic experience and you'll be astounded by the designs you see spread out on the desert below. They are amazing and soaring high above the ground in a small plane will be an experience you won't forget in a hurry - and that's what you want a honeymoon to be, an unforgettable trip.
Discovering vibrant Lima
The capital of Peru is a city worth exploring, boasting countless historical sites, bustling bars and restaurants and plenty of culture. It'd be a shame to miss out on the busy streets of Lima and, as you'll more than likely fly into and out of the metropolis, plan to spend a day or two here at one end of your honeymoon.
One of the most striking things about Lima is the contrast in architecture; you'll find ancient temples standing alongside modern skyscrapers. A great example of this is the Huallamarca complex in the San Isidro district, where you can view the sloping ramps and clear-cut lines of the temple with the new buildings of Lima rising up behind it. The city's streets are also dotted with colonial structures, dating from the period of Spanish rule, so a top thing to do here is take a romantic stroll and simply soak up the atmosphere.
Try white water rafting
There is a wide variety of adventure activities on offer in Peru, but one of the most fun and exhilarating has to be white water rafting. There are over a dozen rivers in the country, providing you with the chance to race down fast-flowing waterways, cruise along the coast or float past vast swathes of jungle.
Don't settle for a bog-standard honeymoon if you want something more exciting! Peru is just one of the many destinations you can visit as newlyweds - do you have any other suggestions?
