Canyoning and Rock climbing in Reunion

Reunion Island, an Eden for canyoneering ?

That's what fans of this outdoor activity mid-way between rock-climbing and water sports say. Indeed, its mountainous landscape and tropical rainfall are a favorite for fans of abseiling under waterfalls, sliding into natural slides or jumping in the numerous pools. 70 equipped canyons, 131 kilometers of trails, a combined vertical drop of 28 000 meters, so many possibilities on such a small area !
For all these activities, basic safety rules need to be respected. To practice on trust, we suggest you be accompanied by patented guides.

The primary forest will give you the most beautiful expeditions.

Cilaos
Cilaos, the tropical capital of mountain activities, is logically Chamonix's (the birthplace of mountaineering) sister city. It is considered by specialists as its equivalent in the southern hemisphere (less the snow!).
