Winter honeymoon - Switzerland? Italian Alps? Other?

Jump to last reply

My fiancé and I are planning our February honeymoon and thought that a winter adventure might be a nice twist on the typical beach-going style of honeymoons.

We would love some input and advice on how to best maximize our experience, starting with what areas others may suggest we zero in on. The Swiss and Italian Alps sound appealing and romantic, but I know this is also high season, and the prices may be at peak, which is a bit of a concern.

A few notes on what we're looking for:

- Six or seven nights
- Traveling from US East Coast
- We like skiing and would want to ski one or two days, but do not need/want a super high end ski vacation or resort
- We like a mix of activity outdoors and more low key sight seeing, wine tasting, etc.
- If possible, we'd love to see a few locations - maybe fly into Switzerland for a few days and drive to Italy and fly home from there

Other than skiing, would outdoor adventures like cogs to see mountain ranges or visit the Matterhorn be open in February? Is 6-7 nights "too long" to explore one region or would it be too quick to try to fit in two areas?

Any other suggestions for locations? While we do not have a strict budget, some initial estimates for six days in Switzerland for flights/hotel are coming in at about $6-8K, which is a bit more than we would ideally want to spend just for airfare and hotel.

Thank you in advance!
