Hiking, trekking and nature trails, Seychelles


If you are staying at The Cerf Island Resort, you have to dedicate a day to rediscover the joy of trekking for it is a unique occasion to explore the local fauna and flora.

Surprising footpaths will lead you through a luxurious vegetation with unexpected openings onto breathtaking views of the island’s beaches.

There are plenty of trails on the Seychelles islands, but to find them is a challenge. The hand-out tourist maps are inaccurate when it comes to trails and foot paths.

Better get the topo maps of the Geographical Survey, they have accurate maps that show fairly well the trails, too. Normally the trails go to some view point or traverses a ridge or end up at some nature phenomenon, water fall, shrine or plantation.

The walks are hot, so bring water. A delightful way of spending a day out as an alternative to the beach.

A network of easy trails – none requiring more than two hours of walking time – laces the Vallée de Mai National Park, on Praslin. Home to the famed coco-de-mer palm, whose oversize, sensuously shaped nut has been wowing nature-lovers for centuries, this remains one of the world's most pristine tropical forests.


 
Take a trip to the nature...

Take a trip to the Nature Protection Trust of Seychelles headquarters on Silhouette Island.

It's run by very friendly people who and will be happy to show you around! Meet the lovely giant tortoises! Ask them to take you up Mont Pot-a-Eau to see Jardin Marron, an area which the Trust is restoring to its natural state - it's an amazing walk, and they'll show you all the flora and fauna on the way!

You can see a chameleon, some geckos, and some beautiful white-tailed tropic birds!

They also make gorgeous batiks, which are sold at the shops on Silhouette and at Beau Vallon on Mahé.


Hiking The National Park

Hiking in the Morne Mount Seychellois National Park on Mahé Island.

The 699 m high Trois Frères Peak offers you a magnificent view over the harbour of Victoria, St. Anne Marine National Park and of the islands in the distance, La Digue and Praslin in the distance.

The steep hike starts at Sans Souci Forset Station. The trail is signposted.
