Holidays and Tourism in Reunion Island

BALADES CRÉATIVES - Short hikes with live performance Reunion Island

Recent years have seen flowering dramatized outings around the planet. In Reunion, Benjamin Clément, a young Reunionese man, decided after studying business in 2015 to start his own small business by offering walks that combine nature and culture.

His goal: to showcase what is not necessarily seen in the landscape. Including history, but especially the forgotten tales and legends that survive only in the collective imagination, in the memory of the locals.

Each proposed walk is an original creation of the company, which attracts a mixed audience combining history buffs, nature lovers, tourists and locals, ready to embark on the adventure, sneakers on their feet. The places visited are little known and accessible to family audiences.
Comedians, musicians and storytellers, all different for each outing, will share their crazy creativity and will surprise you popping out from unexpected places.

Since the walks take you in Nature, it will also be an opportunity to become aware of the fragility of Reunion’s biodiversity.
