Reunion Island - Piton Maïdo - Saint Paul Market - Half Day Tour

Select Date and Travellers
5 travellers
What to Expect
This morning we will leave the coast quite early and make our way through the Leeward Forrest of Highland Tamarin as we make our way to Maido. We will head down to Petite France, a village, where we will discover an essential oil distillery, before going to Saint Paul. Saint Paul is where we will visit the island's most popular market.

Our tour today will bring us to some very scenic and memorable locations including:

Saint Gilles Les Hauts: A village that has grown quite quickly into a small town. 

Piton Maïdo and The Cirque of Mafate: Piton Maïdo allows for an ariel view of Cirque of Mafate, a perfectly situated gem. Known as the jewel of the island, Mafate is hikers dream location. Situated in a location only accessible by foot and endless amounts of pristine vegetation that is unspoiled. 

La Petite France: This Creole village is home to a famous essential oil distillery. The most popular flower grown here is Geranium Rosat. 

La Chapelle Pointue (The Pointed Chapel): Built in 1841, this chapel is situated on the estate of the Musee de Villele. The Catholic chapel has become a large part of Saint Gilles history.

Saint Paul: Saint Paul was the first village on Reunion Island and is home to one of the most popular markets. Every Friday, the market is lively and energetic with a medley of colors and smells. 

The exact order of the sites listed that we will see does vary sometimes. We always offer time to allow for some flexibility should weather impede on our day at all. We take pride in traveling on lesser known roads than on the highways as this only enhances the experience for our guests and allows them to indulge further into the beauty of the Island in the "country".

Our day is set at a comfortable pace so we are able to thoroughly enjoy each spot and feel at peace rather than rushed. 

At the end of the tour today, you'll be transferred back to your accommodation.
