Hello, this hike was an incredible discovery! The guide was very friendly and attentive. Thanks to him, I was able to learn more about the piton de la fournaise, its lava flows, its formation, the plants that surround it. The guide really knew how to accompany me on this adventure and thanks him for this magical moment!

A SENSATIONAL hike! We were able to surpass ourselves during this hike, we “Sunday sportsmen”! And above all, what pride when we reached the summit of Piton de la Fournaise! We leave with stars in our eyes and are grateful to our guide Vincent who came to pick us up because we were not transported! Thank you for everything what an amazing experience!

Thank you very much to our guide Guillaume who knew how to make this day at Piton exceptional. We strongly recommend that you discover the Piton de pa fournaise with a guide, it allows you to get off the beaten track and not end up with the "crowd" of visitors and to learn a lot of things. A real privileged moment!
