Activity description

Situated in the middle of the Indian Ocean, Reunion boasts an altitude of 3,000 metres. Where else could be better for the adrenaline-inducing activity of mountain biking?!

The island has an endless list of where you could practice this fun outdoor activity. Rando Réunion Passion however, will take you out to one of the most beautiful, if not the most beautiful descent in the world, up the Maïdo!

Mountain biking can be enjoyed by everyone, as long as you can ride a bike, you’re good to go!

You will start off at an altitude of 2,200 metres by discovering the Cirque de Mafate, a huge crater that can only be explored on foot or by bike! Then you’ll cross the Forest of Cryptomerias and this is where the adventure really gets started! You’ll experience a few technical passages in the Forest of Tamarins, whilst occasionally stopping to take in the spectacular view before you. As you leave the forest, you’ll see the sky and Indian Ocean merge into one – a stunning vision to behold. In the distance you’ll spy the lagoon and beach of Saint-Gilles-les-Bains.

After passing the meadows you’ll be led to the famous sugar cane fields that will take you to the coast, where you can swim in the welcoming warm waters of the ocean.  

Offer Description

- You’ll meet your instructor who will be waiting for you at the meeting point

Descente du Maïdo en vtt sous un soleil magnifique! Montée en minibus arrivée en haut du Maïdo avec une une magnifique sur Mafate et l’ocean de l’autre côté, on ne sait plus où regarder tellement le paysage est impressionnant! Descente effectuer sur des pistes vtt à travers différents paysages, forêt de tamarins, forêts d’autres arbres puis à travers les champs de canne à sucre. Petit groupe de trois avec un moniteur qui s’est adapté au niveau des participants. Chacun évolue à son rythme avec des points d'arrêts, mon compagnon roulant à toute allure et moi même ayant un rythme plus touristique avons tous deux été ravi de cette activité! Je recommande sans hésitation! Le petit plus le rafraîchissement à quelques mètres de l’arrivée bien mérité. J’ai adoré!

Brilliant fun, fast, great views, exceptional way to go down the mountain. Beware, its not for someone who is a real beginner on a bike.
