Not your average tropical island is the best way to describe Reunion. An island of many contrasts, the French governed island of Reunion is unknown to many of the world’s travelers. This unique island in the middle of the Indian Ocean is simply one of the most intriguing spots on earth. Known for it’s adventure orientated exploration holidays, it’s not uncommon for people to stay at least two weeks.

  • The island is 63 kilometres long, 45 kilometres wide, convering 2,512 square kilometres. One of the youngest islands in the world.
  • It is still highly mountainous with volcanic activity still happening today. One of its volcanoes, Piton de la Fournaise, over 2,631 metres above sea, is one of the most active volcanoes in the world. The Piton des Neiges volcano is the highest point on the island at 3,070 metres above sea level and is extinct.
  • The first settlers arrived from France in the 17th century to an uninhabited island, accompanied by servants from Madagascar.
  • Being a small island, there are only nine native species of mammals. In the forested areas you can find rare rusa deers and hares, among others.
  • Extreme sports and outdoor enthusiasts will rejoice as almost every activity is catered for. From land activities that include hiking, mountain biking and rock climbing to water based activities like kite surfing and Stand Up Paddle Boarding. You name it, Reunion has it.
