Destination Information for Reunion
The French island of Reunion is located in the Indian Ocean, between Mauritius and Madagascar. The incredibly beautiful volcanic landscape with a warm tropical climate and pure white sandy beaches make this small island an idyllic destination.
Thanks to the mountainous terrain, Reunion is popular with walkers and hikers, with nearly 1,000 km of hiking trails and guided tours easy to arrange. Flora and fauna is also what draws the tourists to Reunion, and the island is home to hundreds of species of birds and marine animals in and around the country’s lakes, rivers, waterfalls and coral reefs.
The extinct volcano, Piton des Neiges, marks the highest point in the Indian Ocean, with the village of Saint-Louis below acting as a welcoming base for travellers and trekkers.
If you’re thinking of heading to Reunion, bear in mind the timings of the French school holidays, when visitor numbers increase dramatically. The best time for hiking is during October and November, offering cooler temperatures and fewer crowds.
