Day 1: The Sights of Saint-Saint-Pierre and the Langevin Waterfall in the Wild South

Morning: Welcome at the airport then we will take the superb new road of the Littoral (the most expensive road in the world…) to your accommodation in Saint-Pierre.

Then we will visit the following sites in St Pierre according to your arrival time :

Visit the Domaine du Café Grillé which is a 4-hectare Creole garden. You explore the history of botany on the island of Reunion. More than 800 exotic species mingle, mixing colors and fragrances. You will discover the fruit trees as well as the different aromatic plants of Reunion. You will also learn about the history of the great cultures of yesteryear. You can even taste the pointed Bourbon coffee!

Visit the Saga du Rhum: it is a must-visit to learn more about the famous rum of the island of Reunion. At the Isautier Distillery Museum, the oldest on the island, you will dive into the history of collecting sugar cane. You will see a sugar cane grinding mill, dating from the 1940s. Then you will take a little tour of the distillery to sharpen your senses. Naturally, a tasting is organized on-site!

Visit of the Tamil Narassingua Perournal Temple: Originally, this temple was a simple wooden chapel, built around 1860. It was not until 1972 that the present temple emerged from the earth.

Hinduism is the second most practiced religion on the island. The architecture of the temple is splendid, with its thousands of sculpted statues. It is possible to visit the interior, but only on Wednesdays from 3 pm to 4 pm. Remember to cover your shoulders.

Visit the fishing district of Terre-Sainte: many stairs and passages are interwoven in the middle of the small houses. A good-natured atmosphere reigns in this district, where it is not uncommon to cross domino players under the giant banians. After the fishing port, you will find a very nice small beach of white sand and fine, and little frequented

Afternoon: Visit of the Langevin waterfall. Located in the Wild South, the Langevin waterfall or Grand Galet waterfall is composed of multiple waterfalls stretching over the same rock face, and diving into a large deep pool with clear blue water. Here we can swim, canyoning and picnic.

Day 2: Day in Grand Bassin

After breakfast, we will go to our accommodation in La Plaine des Palmistes.

Then we go to the parking lot overlooking the tiny village of Grand Bassin. From here we will make the superb descent to this Creole village, out of time.

Grand Bassin is an isolated islet in a mini-cirque surrounded by imposing ramparts. Sometimes nicknamed the "little Mafate", this classic hiking spot on Réunion Island is a jewel of the Hauts region's heritage, offering visitors the chance to step back in time.

This atypical islet can only be reached on foot, via a path of almost 4.5 km.

A refreshing dip at the foot of the waterfall is a much-appreciated reward. The Grand Bassin Valley is home to many endemic bird species, including the Papangue, pink-billed, tec-tec, and Oiseau la Vierge, and the Bourbon black petrel, which is classified as an endangered species.

We’ll have lunch there before we go back to the parking lot.

We will spend the night in a cottage in La Plaine des Palmistes.

Day 3 The Eastern Waterfalls and the Cirque de Salazie

Morning: After breakfast, we will go to Bélouve for our hike to the Belvedere where we will admire the famous Trou de Fer.

The Trou de Fer waterfall, known all over the world, is a geological curiosity 300 meters deep. The fall is 725 meters high, it is the highest in France. You can enjoy it on the occasion of an impressive helicopter flyby or at the end of our hike that will start at the parking lot of the Bélouve gîte or Coteau Monique. After 2 hours we will reach the viewpoint where we can admire and photograph large and small waterfalls as well as the steep sides of the Trou de Fer.

Then we will take the direction of Hell Bourg. On the way we will see the following 2 waterfalls:

The Takamaka waterfall: we will discover it on the road along the river of Marsouins, in the middle of an exuberant tropical vegetation.

The Cascade Blanche: 640 meters high, it is ranked 3rd in France on the list of the highest waterfalls. It is accessible after a nice walk through the lush vegetation, orchards, and Creole squares. It is possible to go down the white waterfall in canyoning.

We will sleep in a cottage in the charming Creole village of Hell Bourg.

Day 4: Saint-Denis

Before heading to Saint-Denis for the return flight, we will not fail to admire the most famous waterfall of the Cirque de Salazie: the Voile de la Mariée.

This legendary waterfall unfolds along the slopes forming a wild hair through lush vegetation. The waterfall can be seen from the road, but for more emotions, you can walk to the basin.

Once in Saint-Denis, we will visit some of the city’s sites, depending on the time available before your transfer
