Botanical Tour - 7 Nights

From majestic landscapes and awesome viewpoints to attractive coastal cities and stunning forests, the island of Reunion really packs a punch.

Jutting out of the ocean like a basaltic shield cloaked in green, this scenically magical island enjoys a truly astonishing diversity of landscapes. What to expect? Awesome mountainscapes, emerald forests, tumbling waterfalls, soul-stirring panoramas, energetic coastal cities and a sprinkling of white- or black-sand beaches. The formidable Piton de la Fournaise, one of the world's most accessible active volcanoes, adds to the thrill – Réunion is not dubbed 'the Hawaii of the southern hemisphere' for nothing. And as if living on an active volcano weren't enough, Réunion has three Cirques (calderas) with folk living in them.
