Reunion Island. A diverse and beautiful aerial display.

Reunion Island. – The best way to get a perspective on the diversity of the island, its varied landscape, size and offerings is from the air We took a 45 minute flight with Corail Hélicopteres out of the Saint-Gilles base. It went a little like this:

Discover the Cirques of Cilaos, Mafate and Salazie (Le Trou de Fer) and their stunning and verdant relief in a National Park recognized as World Heritage by Unesco. Fly over the Piton de la Fournaise, one of the most active volcano in the world and reaching 2632 meters at its highest point. On your way back, fly over the azure lagoons … A unique journey displaying intense landscapes.

Blue views that go on forever, and I saw two leatherback turtles from the air, a gift from the ocean.
