Description

Take a tour of Reunion Island and admire its most beautiful sites from the sky!

This 45-minute helicopter flight show you the island's iconic highlights from a whole new angle.

Taking off from Saint-Pierre, you'll fly over the three different cirques of Mafate, Cilaos, and Salazie, which alone represent a significant portion of the island's territory.
In the background, you'll spot the Piton des Neiges, the highest peak on Reunion Island.

You'll also pass by the Trou de Fer, with a 300-metre chasm inaccessible on foot right in the heart of it.

Of course, you won't miss the famous Piton de la Fournaise, the island's still active volcano that stands tall at over 2,600 metres in altitude.

Your pilot will then take you over the turquoise waters of the lagoon before returning to Saint-Pierre.
