Blows of the heart

Bird watching, diversity & naturalism

Travel "intelligent" by opting for eco-friendly tourism.

"Réunion Ecotourisme" is an agency that stands for environmental awareness.

It guarantees:
- a discovery of Reunion Island with specialised guides and comprehensive information on "Pitons, cirques and ramparts" (UNESCO).
- a limited impact of your holiday on the environment (groups of maximum 5 to 10 people, local products, no littering during hikes...).
- a compensation for the carbon emission of your tour with Action Carbone.
- the funding of environmental protection associations.
- tours respectful of the small local economy (accommodation in gîtes, bed and breakfast, local guides).
- 24/7 support by a local guide who will share with you the passion for his island.
