Given the current climate of unrest in the world, many are choosing to unwind with their new spouse a little close to home. Arlene Harris looks at some of the best honeymoon destinations that are a little closer to home.

Switzerland – Famed for being the playground of the rich and famous, St. Moritz is a beautiful valley in Switzerland and is the perfect choice at any time of the year. In winter, the breath-taking Alps are ideal for snowy activities and some romantic Aprés Ski fun. But springtime and summer are just as magical – from jazz festivals to mountain hikes, swimming in the glacial waters or soaking up some rays, honeymooners will be spoilt at the Kempinski Grand Hotel Des Bains.

Iceland – Iceland is a must for anyone with a sense of adventure. Winter activities finish in May but are replaced by summer activities such as lava-tube caving, helicopter rides and a tour of the famous Golden Circle.
