Look forward to lush vegetation, countless palm trees, wide sandy beaches and crystal-clear water. Enjoy a few relaxing hours doing exactly as you choose. Wander across the fine sand, take a dip in the pleasantly warm sea or simply let your mind drift as you relax on the beach. The reefs and lagoons are home to a colourful underwater world and perfect for snorkeling.

    Praslin/Seychelles, arrival 7.00 hrs

    A dream for nature lovers: Praslin is covered almost entirely in tropical rainforest and has an impressive variety of colourful marine fauna and flora. The ideal way to discover this underwater world is on a catamaran trip with swimming and snorkelling*. On land, don’t miss the Vallee de Mai national park*, a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site, or the bird sanctuary on Cousin Island* where you can see some very rare species.

    OUR TIP:
    Underwater world
    The Maldives and Seychelles are some of the world’s most beautiful diving destinations. Our travel concierge will be happy to book your private dive* for you.

    La Digue/Seychelles
    Bizarre granite formations on white sand: Anse Source d’Argent is one of the absolute highlights amongst the idyllic beaches on the Seychelles and is the perfect place to spend some time at your own pace. Just as unforgettable is a “taxi journey” by ox-drawn cart.

    Victoria/Mahe
    The influence of the former British Empire is reflected in the town’s buildings. On an excursion to see “Victoria and the north of Mahe”* you will be able to see the glory of times gone by. A helicopter flight* over the island, a zip line adventure* through the treetops of the jungle.
