Mascarenes: Réunion, Mauritius, Rodrigues – From the Pitons to the Lagoons

In the Mascarene Islands

Three pearls in the southern Indian Ocean

Situated at the southern end of the Indian Ocean there are a few islands that are close geographically, each with such different characters. First of all, Réunion Island, politically French territory with multiple cultural influences, it offers a very volcanic landscape – out of the ordinary with fantastic possibilities for walks and hikes around the famous Pitons culminating at 3,070 metres of altitude! Further east, Mauritius, a former British colony, with its superb coast offers many activities (beach, water sports, diving, snorkelling), there are the well-known tourist parts but also wilder parts such as the south coast. Finally the island of Rodrigues even further east, which has retained its authenticity and offers some of the most beautiful lagoons in the world. What could be better than to combine them during an exceptional trip.
