My trip to Reunion Island was nothing short of epic. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect of this island in the Indian Ocean (map) but once I arrived, I was simply blown away by its spectacular natural beauty. Its stunning lagoon-fringed coastline and breathtaking mountains are the perfect decor for an adventure holiday. We went on long drives around the island, clambered through lava tubes (formed by recent volcanic eruptions), hiked through the mountains, trudged through amazing canyons and flew over the island in micro-light aircraft. After a week there, it was clear to me: Reunion Island is the ultimate adventure destination! It certainly was a trip I won’t easily forget.
