A French Island located in the Indian Ocean, east of Madagascar, lies the beautiful Reunion Island. Unlike its neighbour, Mauritius, Reunion Island's main attraction is not its beaches. If it's extraordinarily beautiful landscape, characterised by high peaks, deep canyons and plains you're after, Reunion's volcanic origins grant exactly this.
As for activities, trekking is the most rewarding - whether you're gazing up at proud volcanic peaks, or staring down from those same peaks, you're in for fantastic scenery. The towns are adorned with colonial architecture and are excellent starting points for inland adventures.
