reunion_island-mapLocated in the Indian Ocean, off the coast of Madagascar, Reunion is a land of contrasts: coral reefs, white sandy beaches and palm trees coasts, volcanoes and wild nature inland. Mountain overlooking the sea, was born of two volcanoes, the Piton des Neiges and the Piton de la Fournaise.

The latter can still erupts regularly. At the center of the island, massive subsidence has created three "circuses" connected to the sea through narrow gorges calls Mafate, and Salazie Cialos. They delight those who love the mountains.

Réunion-Island-Helicopter-TourUninhabited until the middle of the seventeenth century, a French Overseas Department since 1946, today the island is home to 700,000 people of varying origins (French, Malagasy, Indian, African.)

The Arab sailors used to call this island, once uninhabited, Dina Morgabin ("Western Island"). Portugal's Pedro de Mascarenhas was the first European to visit in 1513. When it was occupied by the French in 1642, the French king Louis XIII nicknamed Ile Bourbon (named after the ruling family, the Bourbons). Reunion was renamed during the French Revolution (1793).
