What Are the Best Active Honeymoon Destinations?

I'm looking for a good destination for an active honeymoon this summer. We're fit, but local day hikes are the extent of our outdoor skills; we don't know how to ski and we're too pale to just lie on the beach. Both U.S. and international destinations are fine.

For many people, a honeymoon means serious beach time. But there’s no reason why it has to be that way. I have some friends who spent their honeymoon in Juneau, Alaska, tackling short hikes by day and hitting the town for great meals each night; another pair went for an epic multi-day canoe trip in northern Ontario. Since it sounds like you're generalists, I’d recommend a multi-activity trip somewhere that offers a whole array of possibilities. Here are some options to get you started.
