One day trip (bus, lunch, drinks, guide)

Volcano Piton de la Fournaise

Only for those registered via the registration form
(see the registration form, lunch, drinks, and entry fees included)

7:30am Starting from the Conference Hotel

Heading to the capital of the south, St. Pierre.
On our way to the volcano, we will pass Le Tampon and the moor lands of the Plaine des Cafres with gorse and arums as well as the desert landscape of the volcano. Getting to the Plaine des Sables, we will have the possibility to enjoy an absolutely stunning view of the vast area of black and red scoriae, resembling a lunar landscape. Once more, we will realize that Reunion is a very unique tropical island. Having crossed the Plaine des Sables you will go up from former craters to the rampart which marks the central volcanic crater of the enclosure. There, at the edge of a balcony 300m high, you will be able to admire Formicaléo and the Piton de la Fournaise.

Notice: Possibility to descend to the caldera of Formicaléo on your own responsibility. The guide is not a mountain guide; he will await you at the top.

Traditional Creole lunch

On the way back, this excursion leads us to the village of Bois-Court, where we can admire a hydraulic watch and enjoy the fascinating view on the gorges of Bras-de-la-Plaine. The small village Gand-bassin is situated between two mountains. Vegetables and fruits are cultivated around this village and cattle-breeding and tourism practiced. Going down to St. Pierre, you will visit the museum "La Saga du Rhum". Integrated in the heart of the distillery Isautier (established in 1845), the museum proposes a historic view on the aromas of this liqueur, which are bound to the history and to the development of Reunion.
