Details of the trip to Reunion Island with Llorenç Planagumà

Reunion Island, in the Indian Ocean, is a true paradise. To explore its tropical forests, volcanoes, ravines and endemic birds. It is a mixture of origins, skin colours and flavours with aromas of vanilla, turmeric and old rum.

The geology of the island is similar to that of Hawaii, due to its volcanic nature. The Piton de la Fournaise is an active Red – Hot Spot volcano, (2,611 metres high), with very effusive eruptions.

Reunion Island is an overseas department of France, so entry conditions are the same as for any other country or territory belonging to the European Union.
