Beautifull trip through the bush to reach Copolia pick. Badamier and takamaka's trees all around you, thousands of root's steps covered of ferns , and after 3km of going up the terrific view of the lagoon and Eden Island. Just on a little terrace of granitic rocks, with only the voice of the wind and the superb colour of the... More

A very steep 45 min. climb up a trail within the lush tropical forest of Mahe which ends in a truly breathtaking view of Seychelles and many islands, the airport, the island of Eden, and the many shades of blue surrounding the islands. The climb is difficult and you get soaked in sweat so be well prepared. The view is... More

This is a moderate hike with a steep grade but short. The views at the end are well worth it and I would recommend to any outdoor enthusiast !

We walked this trail with our 3 year old and our baby in a backpack. I had been told it was flat with a climb at the end. What rubbish! It is very steep most of the way. I would only attempt this if you are moderately fit and wearing stout shoes. Our 3 year old managed it only due... More

Varying fittest levels meant one of us found this a breeze and the other found it a bit of an effort as it's pretty much all uphill with few flat sections but very much do-able for the less fit. Nice and cool under the canopy, well maintained trail and a good view at the top.

Absolutely satisfying trail.it's a moderately difficult trek, but very much doable. We had two children with us and all of us could finish the trek. It goes thru a dense equatorial forest which has variety of vegetation.and we also had a very knowledgeable guide with us who kept on informing us about various trees, and it's medicinal uses. Must do... More

The entrance to the track is found at the side of the road. I saw police officers there earlier but when we got there they'd gone. We saw absolutely no-one on the whole walk. It was very hard work. I'm reasonably fit but I had to stop to let my heart rate return to normal a few times! I didn't... More

This was a very nice jungle hike in Morne Seychelles National Park. It leads to a rock outcrop with amazing views of Victoria and the surrounding area. Our 6-year-old son had no problems with the hike, although we watched him closely through the steep sections. Small the world's smallest frog also. Hike took about 1.5 hours roundtrip. A friendly park... More

The trail is quite well defined with some steps hewn out of the terrace and climbing over rocks required in other places. Heavy and frequent rain in the two weeks preceeding made it quite slippery in parts and somewhat treacherous if not careful. It took about 45 minutes of moderately arduous climb to reach the summit. The day was somewhat... More
