Beautiful hikes in the east and south as well as in the centre of the island. A variety of landscapes, climates as well as levels of difficulty with notably some accessible climbs.
The proposals below are not exhaustive. They will put you in contact with hiking guides and domains with whom it is possible to plan more walks and outings and to expand your programme.
The initial proposal of our theme holidays is to discover different regions, changing accommodation during the stay and participating in a variable number of activities. In each case, several accommodations – if possible with different packages – are proposed, with possible adaptation to budgets. The activities proposed correspond to the main theme, with varying frequency and intensity.
Discover the varied landscapes – necessarily from different regions – of Mauritius, by joining group excursions or go for hiking trips, self-guided or with professionals. The selection of tracks are suitable to anyone in fairly good physical condition, while those who enjoy long hikes or climbing will have the opportunity to expand or redefine the programme.
For this theme, we opt for accommodation close to the starting and finishing points of the tours. The sequence and frequency of the trips is to be determined on a case-by-case basis.
As this is an outdoor sports trip, summer (November to March) is to be avoided, whereas this programme does not fear the southern winter, as it is mainly on land.
