When I caught the travel bug, one of the first countries I spent an extended amount of time in was in Southern New Zealand. For a thrill seeker like me, it was the mecca of adventure.
Specifically, in the South Island, I found to be a place that I could do a skydive at sunrise, be bungee jumping into a canyon before lunch, ice climbing or heli-skiing on a glacier in the afternoon, and then choose to either go on a hike or wine tasting at night. It had everything, I ever wished for. Throw in some cool caves, waterfalls, pristine beaches, unforgettable lush hikes, and landscapes that went on for days and I was in the epitome of happiness!
When you think dynamic landscape and endless adventure options for your destination wedding adventures, I sure hope New Zealand is on that list!
One of my obsessions to it has always been that the landscape is so diverse no matter the season. This fun fact makes New Zealand an ideal destination wedding adventure location! Can you imagine yourself getting married in New Zealand in one of the following locations?
Having a New Zealand adventure wedding or elopement will have everyone back home swooning in jealousy! We would love to help customize some EPIC NZ adventure wedding options for you throughout the North and South Island of New Zealand. Please contact us for more information on how to get started!

I found myself intoxicated by Los Glaciares National Park, long before I spent time exploring it. There is just something so curious about those granite Fitz Roy towers emerging into the air, the way the light falls on them, and the sharp textures of the Perito Moreno Glacier!
The Los Glaciares National Park can be found on the Argentinean side of Patagonia. It is one of the largest national parks in the country spanning over 2,800 square miles. It’s not a park you can easily sightsee through in one day. …and please don’t! Spend the time to savor it through a few days! After all, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site so it’s gotta be good, right?!
Dying to know how to get here? The nearest international airports to get to these fabulous areas are as follows:
El Calafate is a fantastic vibing town, one of my favorites in fact! The people, the food, and the fact that it is a pretty central locale to discover all there is in the Los Glaciares National Park, helps too. Minutes from here, you’ll find yourself among the glory of the Perito Moreno Glacier!
The options for discovering the Perito Moreno Glacier are many! First, there is an 1 hour boat ride that gets you super close to to admire the glacier falls at eye level. Then if you’re an extreme sports enthusiast or adrenaline junkie, there are guided tours you can take hiking or ice climbing on the Perito Moreno Glacier. And for those of you that wish to admire from afar or at a birds eye view, then you’ll love the boardwalk that allows you to walk from end to end.
Three hours north of El Calafate, past Lago Argentino and Lago Viedma, but still within the Los Glaciares National Park you’ll find the grand Fitz Roy Mountains. The towers of Mount Fitz Roy are nestled in the small town of El Chalten, which I like to refer to in its current day situation of being a “pop-up-town” because everything in this town looks less than 1-5 years old (as of when this Patagonia Wedding Planning post was published).
It’s so new that at the time we visited, the entire town shared one internet connection… I’m not kidding. For the 4 days we spent here exploring I could barely get any emails sent and even had to reschedule Skype calls because there was not a strong enough connection available. The gas station was not even a stationary place (it was a trailer). But the fabulous trade off, is that you’re able to stay so close to the beauty and peace that lies within those majestic mountains behind that little town!
El Chalten is a mecca for those who are looking to hold a romantic elopement or adventure wedding in the Argentinean side of Patagonia. There are 30 minute hikes to 4 hour hikes that will forever imprint you soul. What an unforgettable way to not only celebrate your wedding in Patagonia but to continue on with your honeymoon throughout the stunning Los Glaciares National Park!
The Los Glaciares National Park and the Fitz Roy Mountains in El Chaltén, present some unique challenges as far as routes, fuel options, internet speed, etc. But the views you’ll encounter are out of this world amazing so please find your way there!
We’d love to help you plan your epic Patagonia adventure wedding, so please contact us for more information to ensure your Argentina destination wedding or elopement in Los Glaciares National Park or at the Fitz Roy Mountains will be a flawless time! In the meantime, today we share with you a few of our favorites from a Los Glaciares elopement! ❤ Enjoy ❤

Have you ever had a very vivid (almost lucid) dream about a place you’ve never been and one that you’re not even sure exists as a real life location? But you explore it in your dreams and are convinced you will and must find it?! Ushuaia, Argentina was this uncanny place for me.
I’ve always been a seeker of offbeat, unheard of, and sometimes all it takes is seeing an image of a location and suddenly I have an undying urge to investigate the location. Call it intuition or call it fate, I often find my way to these locations and I am never disappointed in the secret adventure wedding locations I stumble upon! It’s incredibly exciting!
Since I spend most of my time at the token “top of the world” planning adventure weddings in Iceland and throughout the other amazing Nordic countries, I thought it might be a brilliant change to start off 2016 at the bottom of the world, in the most southern city in the world: Ushuaia, Argentina. You’ve probably never heard of it so please allow me today to introduce you to this unspoken beauty!
First question… How do you get to the end of the world city, Ushuaia? There are direct flights into Ushuaia, Argentina (airport code: USH) and then it is best to rent a car. But! If you’re looking for a driving adventure you can fly into the main airport in Patagonia in Punta Arenas (airport code: PUQ), rent a car (Tip: Ensure it has the correct border crossing paper work before leaving) and then start a 1 hour trek to the border between Chile and Argentina.
You’ll need to take a cargo ferry in between (which you just show up and pay once you’ve boarded the ferry). Once off you’ll have another 2.5 hour drive to the the Chilean/Argentina border (make sure you stamp out of Chile before you head to the Argentinean border). We found an amazing amount of gorgeous secret locations and tons of guanacos along the way which made it such a fun drive!
When we arrived in Ushuaia, I was overwhelmed by the beauty, charm, and the amount of this amazing Patagonia wedding locations in and around this little town tucked in in mountains! I. Was. In. Heaven.
For you adventure seekers that love to hike and explore, there are endless options for you in Ushuaia! There are short 30 minute to longer 2+ hour hikes within the Tierra del Fuego National Park that will allow you to experience the most Southern tip of the Andes Mountains and the famed Beagle Channel.
The landscape in Ushuaia is unique full of interesting textures and tones. There are unforgettable mountain views, earthy swamps, bridges made from wood planks, waterfalls, jungles, emerald lagoons, incredible cliffs, and beaches!
There are also two of the most amazing hotels I’ve ever stayed also in this area of Ushuaia, Argentina! They can easily accommodate a dreamy Patagonia elopement or a large 100+ wedding in Ushuaia with all of the North American 4-5 star hotel amenities we know and love.
So whether you plan on coming to the bottom of the world for a romantic getaway, to elope or hold your wedding in Patagonia, I would love to show you the amazing locations we have in our portfolio! Please contact us for more information! In the meantime, enjoy the gorgeous images below and explore Ushuaia, Argentina a little bit with us!

Adventure was born and lives in Patagonia, no joke folks! Specifically, it resides in the Torres del Paine National Park. Have no idea where that is? Picture: South America, then find your way to Chile, and then down the Andes Mountains to the most southern section of Chile and Argentina… Then you’ll find yourself in the formal region of Chilean Patagonia in the midst of the Torres del Paine Park!
Once in the Torres del Paine National Park, you’ll find something totally intoxicating and borderline addicting about seeing the different angles of those famed granite “W” mountain peaks, the mysterious Grey Glacier, and the wild feeling of freedom that fills this park. Not to mention the endless amounts of wildlife like, Guanacos (alpacas), Ostriches, Flamingos, Pumas, Foxes, Armadillo, and Condors flying around which all help add to the enchantment.
The moment we arrived at one of the park entrances, we were greeted by a gorgeous guanaco and boy was he playful as you’ll see below!
The entire park is weaved together by gravel roads which adds to the charm as the wind blows the dust around. Adventure junkies from around the world come to cross off their bucket lists the the challenging 3, 7, or 10 day trek around the Torres del Paine National Park.
The main areas that make up the “W” mountain hiking trip are as follows: Glacier Grey, The French Valley, and the Base of the Torres (the 3 towers) overlooking the stunning Torres Lagoon.
So but of course adventurous couples from around the world should also find their way here, to hold an incredible Patagonian Destination Wedding, Whimsical Elopement in Patagonia, or have their unforgettable Honeymoon in Patagonia! I mean because how fun would it be to get married atop of the ridges with these famed Chilean Patagonia mountains as your backdrop?
Patagonia Weddings are ideal for you extreme sports enthusiasts or avid travelers! You can camp your way through it or go the luxury route and stay in hotels and/or refugios and we are thrilled to help you decide which would be ideal for you, please contact us for more information!
I’m a glacier lover personally, so give me some crampons, ice, and gorgeous view and I’ll be set for the day =) One of my favorite things about Patagonia’s Torres del Paine Grey Glacier is the opportunities to experience the glacier on many levels. You have the glorious option of taking a boat ride to skim the edges (for you lower intensity adventure seekers), if you’re a middle of the road adventure seeker than there is a fantastic hike you can do to get to the viewing point you’ll see below. There you will see the glacier, beautiful mountains, and the glacier lagoon with pieces of ice that have broken off from the glacier. For you high intensity adventure wedding seekers, there is two more opportunities for you… Kayaking around and then climbing onto the Grey Glacier. Exciting stuff, right?!
Further into the park you’ll find a few secret waterfalls with incredible 360 views attached to them! Incredible dynamic area… One of my favorites to hold your epic wedding in Patagonia!
Patagonia Wedding Locations can actually come with some really amazing historical elements too believe it or not! Like holding your Patagonia destination wedding or elopement in a cave where the incredible creature once lived 10,000 years ago! Dreamy!
The list of Patagonia wedding locations within the Torres del Paine are endless for you adventure seekers. So I invite you to enjoy the rest of these stunning Patagonia Wedding location images! They are just a few we are publicly sharing, we have many more stunning secret wedding locations. So please contact us if you’re interested in planning a Patagonian Destination Wedding or running away to elope in Patagonia! We’d love to hear from you, contact us!

The definition of serendipity is defined as being, “a fortunate accident” by my all-time favorite movie, Serendipity.
I am firm believer in being in the right place at the right time. I’m also always fascinated by the fact that is exactly how the best love stories begin. …and our clients, for some reason, always seem to have this theme in common and especially since adventurous folks tend to find each other. This week’s fabulous featured destination wedding couple, is no exception. Sarah and Alex met in Sydney, Australia’s market square one random Saturday morning, which then led into several years adventuring together conquering, discovering, pushing their limits and comfort zones through travel and unforgettable experiences!
Sarah and Alex began planning their Nordic Elopement with us, shortly after the contest close, in March 2015 and were open to being married in all of the Arctic countries and wholeheartedly embraced the adventure wedding concept, the unique challenges and scenes each country presented! Our team at Your Adventure Wedding, presented many unforgettably unique itinerary options in the following countries: Lapland (Northern Finland), Denmark, Iceland, Sweden, Lofoten Islands (Northern Norway), and the Faroe Islands. In the end, Sarah and Alex craved the extreme snow, Northern Lights, and the very distinct activities the Lapland route held.
So it was then, that Alex and Sarah very enthusiastically decided, they would elope on Tuesday, December 1st 2015 in Lapland! This timing also coincided to be at the beginning of their month long holiday to discover Europe! Neither one of their families knew about their secret entry to the Nordic Elopement Contest or their plans to take their relationship to the next level, but were thrilled to see the stunning images our sister company, Photos by Miss Ann captured afterwards!
The trek to Lapland begins in Helsinki, Finland and then you take a Finnair flight to Ivalo (approx. 2 hours). The magnificent Kakslauttanen Igloo Village was chosen as the Lapland adventure wedding host hotel and resides an easy 40 minute drive from the Ivalo airport.
The morning of the wedding began at 6:30am with Sarah and Alex getting ready in their comfy Kelo-Glass Igloo Cabin and by 8:15am they were in route to their romantic wedding ceremony! …and boy were they surprised when they arrived! A beautifully lit glass teepee stood out in the early morning darkness! (Side Note: There was only 1.5 hour of daylight during this specific day so time was needed to be planned and used wisely). As they walked towards the teepee, candles and rose petals summoned them to come inside. The dreaminess doubled as they opened the door… Thousands of multicolored rose petals (compliments of Flyboy Naturals) and tea lights overtook the floor. Your Adventure Wedding, honestly made it look like a romantic scene from a movie! Sarah glided over them all smiles as she met Alex at the end! They were married by a Scandinavian Civil Authority in a sweet little elopement ceremony and continued on with their epic adventure in Lapland!
We whisked them away to a path that led down to the famed glass igloos we have all had on our token “bucket list” and then onto a snowy quite cabin area nearby the national park and had a passionate toast to their newly wedded bliss! They trekked around hand in hand in the knee high snow after for the perfect winter wedding portraits! As the sun set and the darkness crept in, it was time for their afternoon adventure wedding activity, dog sledding! Sarah and Alex bundled up and savored every second of their intoxicating journey mushing the dogs through the Lappish wilderness! The action packed schedule, still allowed for a little break to warm up, relax, and catch their second wind too. 5 o’clock brought a visit to Santa’s Village, because after all how can you visit Lapland, the origin of Santa without paying the man a visit, right?!
Nighttime wedding portraits officially began and Photos by Miss Ann was fully equipped to create some amazing images that night. A gorgeous bridge outside of Santa’s home provided the essence of the snowy backdrop that Sarah and Alex yearned for as you’ll see below. They ran around together laughing and exploring the Igloo Village for about another hour then it was time for their sweetly styled (by us, Your Adventure Wedding) reception for two!
As they entered into their private luxury elopement reception space, they noticed the beautiful rose petals from Flyboy Naturals accented the table and transformed the floor into a magical space! Finnish handmade reindeer His & Hers scarves served not only as their party favors for the night but also their chair ties! A “Love” marque sign set the background of their sweetheart table. Other Nordic wedding reception details they found where Mr. + Mrs. Burlap accented glasses, and slate colored napkins which were tied with a triangle mountain “bride” and groom” napkin ring. Swoon-worthy details!
During their last course of their delicious 4 course dinner and conversation, the Northern Lights faintly appeared! Perfect timing too as it was time for the last portion of their 16 hour wedding adventure through Lapland… a horse drawn sleigh ride through the fresh snow that fell throughout the day’s expedition! Nothing like ending your whimsical Nordic elopement snuggled up in a sleigh together! Half way through the ride we were able to stop the horse for some snowy and faint Northern Lights wedding photos! What a grand way to end such a magical unforgettable day in Lapland! Please enjoy Sarah + Alex’s Finland wedding portraits at the Igloo Hotel & Village below (compliments of Photos by Miss Ann)!
