Réunion Island tours & holiday packages

Adventure island

If you're looking for an adventure-filled getaway in an exotic location, you can find it just off the east coast of Africa on Reunion Island.

The best time to enjoy a getaway to Reunion is during March and June. During these months you are able to both avoid the Reunion’s wettest season, as well as hordes of tourists. 

Reunion’s tropical climate gives it both a rainy summer season (October - March) which reaches about 28C and a cool, dry winter season (April – September) which reaches about 20C in temperature.

With 50% of the island a UNESCO Heritage Site and almost one thousand kilometers of hiking trails winding through Reunion’s landscapes, the island is a nature lover’s dream.
