What we will do
  • A minibus takes us from the port to the helipad.
  • There is a short safety demonstration, then we are ready for take-off on our thrilling, and unforgettable, helicopter flight high over the extraordinary landscapes of Réunion.
  • First, we fly over the bay of Saint-Paul and its densely populated hinterland before cutting inland towards the heart of the island.
  • We soon find ourselves soaring high over a wild landscape of ridges and peaks, heading to the Piton Maido which, at 2,200 metres in height, towers over the surrounding mountains.
  • A little further on, we are confronted with the collapsed calderas of the ring of volcanoes that once surrounded the mountain: the cirques of Cilaos, Mafate and Salazie.
  • The rich, emerald green of the lush vegetation covering the Cirque de Salazie, with its waterfalls and the famous wild canyon, the Trou de Fer, is especially inspiring.
  • We continue southwards and fly over the volcano Piton de la Fournaise. 
  • Having crossed the volcanic heart of the island, we see the west coast approaching, with its beaches, blue lagoon and barrier reef.
  • We head back to the ship, still heady with the excitement of this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
