La Fournais Volcano

View a plethora of spectacular geological wonders on this enthralling tour of Réunion’s volcanically formed landscape.


Take a scenic drive along the coastline to Saint-Pierre and begin your ascent to the high plateau of Plaine des Cafres, where you'll pass fields of heather and gentian, thick forests and small villages. Notice the cooling freshness of the coast gives way to the heat of the volcano and, from the nearly 6,800-foot summit of the Nez de Boeuf, delight in sweeping vistas across the valley to the Commerson Crater's stunning caldera.


Stand in awe at the Pas de Bellecombe, a viewpoint perched atop a 492-foot cliff overlooking a volcanic valley that is reminiscent of the lunar surface and features more than 60 small craters spread around the larger Bory and Dolomieu Craters.


Following your unique exploration, visit La Cité du Volcan museum to obtain further insight on the island's volcanoes before partaking in a delicious lunch at a nearby restaurant. You'll long ponder Mother Nature's raw power and her role in creating the bewitching landscapes of breathtaking Réunion.


Note: This tour includes approximately two hours of moderate walking/standing. There will be some steps to negotiate. The tour is not available to guests who utilize a wheelchair. Guests with mobility concerns are cautioned to evaluate their personal level of ability and stamina. Due to the altitude, the tour is not suitable for guests with cardiac problems or those who have a pacemaker.
