Reunion Island is a French overseas department, located in the Indian Ocean in the Mascarene Archipelago, east of Madagascar and southwest of Mauritius. It is an island of about 2500km², of young volcanic formation (5 million years) and therefore presenting almost original landscapes, very varied and rich, grandiose and often breathtaking. The same is true of its history and culture, young, of European origin and yet very rich and diverse, thanks to its local influences of the Indian Ocean, African, Malagasy, Indian and Chinese influences, who brought their languages, their knowledge, their cuisines, their music, their beliefs, and so on. In a word, creolity. In order to discover this magnificent island in all its aspects, I propose to guide you on the most beautiful circuits, the essentials of the island, as for example in exceptional Protected Natural Sites, in the heart of the National Park, such as the mountains Cirques and Cliffs of Reunion, listed as a unesco world Heritage Site in 2010. But also on the circuits that you will have chosen, alone or with me, original circuits and "à la carte". In half a day or during the day, in all regions of the island, being accompanied by a professional guide is the guarantee of being able to make the most of your stay; by his knowledge of the island and the most remarkable sites, the climate specific to each region of the island, the road network and traffic, restaurants and other means of catering, accommodation (hotels, cottages, bed and breakfast, etc.). Do not hesitate to contact me to let me know your wishes in terms of discovering Reunion; or in order to prepare together and in advance your "à la carte tours". Travel on site can be done by personal vehicle, or rented for example. But I can also drive you myself with an 8-seater minibus. We will also visit tropical gardens to discover multiple plants from around the world, ornamental plants but also the perfume and spice plants that made the island famous in the 19th century. If you wish, we can still see on loan, from July to the end of January, the work of the sugar factories and rum distilleries in full activity. I also favor contact with the inhabitant, to discover his artisanal qualities, these Creoles, men and women, passionate about their traditions, their culture and who have kept the know-how transmitted over the generations, such as the traditional distillation of geranium (renowned among the greatest perfumers) or the family production of vanilla (one of the best in the world). And so much more to discover.
