MORE ABOUT REUNION ISLAND

A verdant, dreamlike blend of Creole culture and French colonial style, Reunion Island – the product of a series of earth-shoving volcanic eruptions – is one of a string of secluded retreats in the Indian Ocean. Riven by plunging valleys and soaring hills, Reunion is a truly Edenic island; home to chic resorts, palm-tree-lined roads, and plunging waterfalls.

Private hiking tours on Reunion Island

SHAPED BY VOLCANOES

On a private luxury tour of this emerald island, you’ll plunge into secluded jungle pools, hike verdant valleys, and take it easy on the island’s chic beachside resorts. We recommend making your way up the Piton de la Fournaise Volcano, or ‘Furnace Peak.’ An eye-watering 2,631 meters, it is also one of the world’s most active volcanoes. At its dazzling peak, you’ll be greeted with almost uncannily unreal views across the Indian Ocean and this bountiful Eden.
