207 kilometers of perimeter and only 72 kilometers between its furthest points. In only 2,512km² in the middle of the Indian Ocean, an incredible variety of intense landscapes awaits to be explored on Reunion Island: lunar calderas, rugged mountain peaks, cloud forests, canyons, natural massive amphitheaters (called “cirques“)with their ramparts and peaks so unique and striking that they are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The spice island where initially coffee, and then sugar and vanilla account for a big part of the exports, is more a mountain destination with the lagoon as a bonus to rest after exploring inland. The Reunion Island combines the comfort, security and amenities of travelling through Europe as it is a department of France with the intensity of a unique tropical island.
