Reunion Island is situaded in the Indian Ocean at a distance of 9700 km (6027 miles) from London. It is classified on the UNESCO list of world heritage.
This island is a real challenge, an open "invitation" to do what you like. A dream destination.
Due to its privileged location this exotic island benefits a pleasant subtropical climate throughout the year. The temperature of the sea water fluctuates between 24°C and 29°C. It's really an impressive island with it's own identity. It is a true melting pot of ethnic groups who managed to preserve their own culture, traditions, rituals and of course the culinary habits. Secondly, the landscapes and the partly still untouched flora and fauna are of breathtaking beauty.
Darwin would have appreciated this island. There is an incredible wealth of canyons, waterfalls, (primeval)forest, flower scents, spices, bird species. The crown jewels are the volcanoes "Piton de la Fournaise" and "Piton des Neiges". Who wants to experience something exceptional should know that the first still regularly awakens and shows enchanting eruptions. The second is, with more than 3000 metres, the highest summit in the Indian Ocean. The collapse of the slopes of the volcano have shaped in a spectacular way the three famous "cirques" (natural amphitheaters) : Mafate, Salazie and Cilaos.
These attractions are the authentic part of the island. This is the paradise for hiking, trekking, alpinists, climbing, cavers, but also for canyoning, rafting, mountain biking, horseback riding.
Visiting the island with a quad, by helicopter, paragliding or ULM is also possible. Last but not least, you can enjoy the beaches with crystal clear water protected by coral reef and do ome activities like whale watching, snorkeling, jet skiing, diving, deep sea fishing or kite-surfing.
