HF Holidays New Indian Ocean Holidays

Walking holiday specialist HF Holidays has introduced an Island Paradises of the Indian Ocean itinerary for 2013.

The island-hopping guided tour uncovers the unique character of the island paradises of Reunion, Mauritius and Rodrigues and leisurely walks – between one and six miles each day – take in a range of scenery including active volcanoes, lush rainforest, blue seas and white sand beaches as well as the influence of French, Creole, Indian, African and Chinese culture.

On the island of Reunion – with its lush volcanic slopes – there are walks through the verdant landscapes of the rugged Cirque de Salazie and the Forest of Belouve as well as coastal walks amid white sand creeks and black lava cliffs for amazing views of lunar landscapes and the Piton de la Fournaise volcano. Highlights on Mauritius include the rare Mascarene plants at the Botanical Gardens, the colonial history of the Chateau Labourdonnais, the Valley of Ferney nature reserve – set up for the preservation of many indigenous Indian Ocean Island species – and the island’s capital Port-Louis for the opportunity to try Mauritian-style cooking.

The final part of the holiday is spent on the isolated, petite paradise of Rodrigues – which is surrounded by pristine coral reef – where guests discover the island’s fascinating geology and sail by pirogue to the Ile aux Cocos nature reserve to observe its myriad of birdlife.

Available with departures in May, August and September 2013, the cost is £2995 per person, land-only or from £3695 inclusive of return overnight Heathrow flights and transfers. These twin-share prices include 12 nights’ half-board hotel accommodation, the full programme of guided walks led by a specialist local leader, sightseeing and entrance fees as well as internal flights and coach travel.
