Mauritius: Scenic Helicopter Flight with Hotel Transfers

1. Mauritius: Scenic Helicopter Flight with Hotel Transfers

Admire some of the best sites in the pearl of the Indian Ocean on a helicopter flight of Mauritius, with hotel transfers included. After taking off from the base in Triolet, fly over the bustling capital city of Port Louis, home to administrative buildings and the only port for international trade. Then, head for Tamarin, where you may catch a glimpse of dolphins if you’re lucky. Further on, the Isle of Bénitiers awaits you with its unusual geography. As the helicopter moves toward the southwest of the island, see the majestic Le Morne mountain. Witness the optical illusion from the underwater waterfalls, followed by a kaleidoscope of colors as you fly over Chamarel and its plunging ravines and lush green forests that are home to seven seemingly endless waterfalls, offering breathtaking views from the sky. Pass by the Pouce and Pieter Both mountains, cherished by hikers and nature lovers, completing your aerial journey of Mauritius.

Mauritius: Le Morne Mountain Guided Sunrise Hike and Climb

2. Mauritius: Le Morne Mountain Guided Sunrise Hike and Climb

Walk up Le Morne Brabant mountain, one of Mauritius' most popular attractions and a UNESCO World Heritage Site led by a certified climber as your guide on this small-group tour. Meet your guide at the Slave Route Monument (Le Morne Public Beach) for a safety briefing before you head to the entrance of the mountain. The first section of the hike will be through the luscious rainforest. Make sure to keep an eye out for the phenomenal and rare endemic birds, and plants. Watch the golden sunrise and listen to the birds chirp as you climb up the mountain's four rock-scrambling sections. Along the way, your guide will tell you historical stories about Mauritius' past, and the significance of this important mountain. Pause at the famous Trochetia Boutoniona viewpoint, named after the island's national flower, for some healthy snacks. Take a moment to admire the breathtaking panoramic views surrounding you. Next, arrive at the 470-meter-high summit and try not to let your jaw drop too low as you see the intense beauty and nature Mauritius is so famous for. Snap a few well-deserved photos before heading back down the mountain.

A great activity that is worth every drop of sweat. I would do it again and again and recommend it to others. The guide, Kevin, was very experienced and professional, so you felt safe even in difficult places. A hotel transfer can also be booked. The particularly early climb up to the mountain is highly recommended, as it is then almost uncrowded and you are only in a small group at the viewing point. That was great! You should know that the second part of the climb in particular is very steep and from then on you are almost just climbing. If you are afraid of heights and have little strength in your arms and legs, you should not take this tour. In general, it was a great experience for me personally and even as a solo participant you quickly find a connection with the group. 10/10 points!

I highly recommend. It is better to be well accompanied on this type of trail, we felt very confident with Kevin.

Great hike, I highly recommend, especially the sunrise. Don't hesitate, the guide is great!!
