More About this Guided Hiking Trip Package in Rodrigues
Meet up with the guides at Mont Lubin for the briefing of the day before starting your fun-filled journey.
You will first visit the traditional bee farm known as Miel Victoria to get an insight into the lives of bees and honey production. Learn about beekeeping in Rodrigues from local experts who'll even show you around the hives at the back, whilst also having the opportunity to buy organic local products. Rodrigues honey is renowned throughout the Indian Ocean and is often used by Mauritius' finest chefs.
Afterwards, you will hike for around 3 hours to the south of Rodrigues until you reach Anse Baleine, a cove with an estimated terrain elevation of 213 metres above sea level. From there, you get to take in breathtaking views of the turquoise lagoon and the point where it meets the blue sky- a sight to behold.
After that, it’ll be time to embark on a sailboat that will take you to the paradisiacal islet of your dreams- Ile Gombrani. A scintillating lagoon. A crystal beach. Nature-gifted volcanic rock sculptures. It couldn’t get any better; life couldn't get any better.
Once on the island, a delicious BBQ lunch and drinks will be served. A sumptuous grilled fish with a side of cooked octopus salad along with potato salad, papaya salad and green salad will fill your plate and eventually your tummy for lunch. Pair your meal with some of the cooling beverages on offer- punch, beer, mineral water, fruit juice & soft drinks.
A hearty lunch calls for a nice little walk. And what better place than the beach of Ile Gombrani to stroll around, feet in the sand. Feel the cool breeze in your hair, soak in the salty scent and admire the beauty of the natural surroundings. Whilst you’re there, you might as well lie back on the beach and fully unwind or dip your toes in the crystal-clear Rodriguan waters to refresh your senses.
It’s gonna be hard to say goodbye to such a place that leaves a mark on your heart but all good things must come to an end… Enjoy the final ride back, contemplating the stunning seascape and clicking as many pictures as your heart desires!
