Nicknamed the intense island, the Reunion Island will not disappoint! The volcanic island is a real outdoors enthusiasts’ paradise with its 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. In these cirques, meet the locals in their islets and share a slice of their lives, a glass of homemade infused rum and homegrown food, while hiking these otherwise inaccessible settlements. More a mountain destination with hardly-explored rock-climbing routes, exhilarating mountain biking trails, lava tunnels at the foot of one of world’s most active volcanoes, and a Mecca for canyoning, as a bonus, the lagoon provides of fantastic way of cooling down and resting after exploring the center of the island.
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 and is truly an intense island.
