Your stay in Reunion Island is incomplete without a helicopter tour of the three cirques of Mafate, Salazie and Cilaos. Say yes to a wonderful aerial view of the heart of the island, an inspiration for so many local legends!
After taking off from the base of Gillot, you will head towards the centre of Reunion island. Frozen in time, the cirques of Mafate, Salazie and Cilaos offer a breathtaking view. You will also see why these areas are not easily accessible on foot or by drive as nature has well-protected its masterpieces.
The village of Cilaos is well-developed and enjoys longer sunny periods. On the other hand, the inhabitants of Mafate rely on supplies sent by air to ensure their daily activities. Salazie, where the rainy weather is always prevalent, invites you to enjoy its plunging waterfalls and the Trou de Fer.
On the way back to Gillot, you will have another opportunity to admire the wild beauty of the island. Don’t forget to take some great pictures for wonderful memories!
