Canyoning on Reunion Island

Take the plunge into the water

The Piton de la Fournaise is behind the emergence of the natural treasure that is Reunion Island, almost 3 million years ago. The Pitons, Cirques and Ramparts have even been classified World Heritage Sites by Unesco! The volcano shaped the three Cirques of the island, giving Reunion its unique character and shapes, and creating a land so fertile that one-of-a-kind wildlife flourishes here. The hidden canyons and staggering mountains in this preserved paradise are breath-taking.

It is a real playground for adventurers, which is why canyoning is so popular on Reunion Island.

Bras Rouge canyon, Langevin river, the Fleur Jaune canyon, the Trou de Fer, the Takamaka, Saint Suzanne canyon, are all among the most beautiful in the world and known as hotspots for canyoning on Reunion Island.

In these incredibly diverse places, the high waterfalls, slides, jumps and zip wires guarantee a rush of adrenaline, in a heavenly setting.

What’s the difference between Canyoning and aquatic hiking ?

The main difference between these two disciplines is the “terrain”. Canyoning in Reunion Island is in gorges and canyons, whereas aquatic hiking is in the rivers. As opposed to canyoning, aquatic hiking does not require pot-holing or climbing experience. Canyons are much narrower than rivers, so canyoning requires more technical experience, such as abseiling and pot-holing.
