Hey romantics: What’s your idea of a fantastic, outdoorsy honeymoon spot?
How about this?
• A patch of deep wilderness land near the Arctic Circle, in a remote corner of Canada’s Northwest Territories.
• You get there via bush plane, and once you’re dropped off you start gathering materials to build a shelter from scratch.
• You hunker down for 9 months, including a Canadian winter. No electricity, no plumbing, no connections to the civilized world, and your love only grows deeper.
