Activity description

Discover the unique nature and culture of the island of La Reunion by reaching Les Makes village and climbing the Piton Cabris with a professional mountain leader.

Patrick is a nature enthusiast and he will take you with him on this journey on the heights of the Creole village of Les Makes in the heart of the Reunion Island! This easy hike will allow you to approach the Hauts forest, west of the island, its plants and animal species.

The path leads to an opening in the trees that gives you a magnificent view over the Cirque of Cilaos. Your guide will introduce you to the geological history, the people's settlement and the typical local products. Finally, on your way back through the forest, you will enjoy an incredible panoramic view of the south of the island.

This hike of about 7 kilometers with an altitude difference of 400 metres allows you to approach the environment of the Cirque de Cilaos.
