Réunion island, a part of France in the middle of the Indian Ocean, where french nationalism joins with creole and indian cultural impact and cuisine. Even though it is an island relatively close to the equator and surounded by warm water, the main attraction here isn’t bathing and beautiful beaches. Sea swimming is even forbidden on the majority of the island due to the presence of sharks. No, the main reason to come here are its beautiful wild high mountains. So come with me on a 5-day tour of the best spots.
