For centuries the island of Reunion’s moonlike volcanoes, lagoons, lush landscapes and monumental cirques rising from the deep blue have inspired many. The island has lured me with the promise of her breathtaking beaches ever since I first learned of her.

Luckily my friend Vertigo doesn’t really bother me when in a helicopter, so even those with a serious fear of heights HAVE to try and add this experience to their itinerary. Flying over an erupting volcano truly is a once in a lifetime experience. Piton de la Fournaise is the second most active volcano in the world.

There are few places in the world able to boast being home to one of the most active volcanoes in the world; the Piton de la Fournaise on Reunion Island has erupted on average twice a year since 1998, yet remains one of the island’s most exciting features and top tourist attractions. 

Special thanks to HELILAGON who took us on this helicopter flight over the three cirques, Trou de Fer and the volcano.

#gotoReunion, just me, this island cannot let you down. It has something for everyone.
