Today you will drive up to 2200 m in one of the most spectacular places in the world! Enjoy the changing scenery: charming villages, acacia and tamarind forests and steep cliffs at the magical viewpoint of Maido. It overlooks the Mafate Cauldron and 9,000 acres of pristine wilderness. There are only 700 inhabitants in the whole boiler, spread over 15 small villages. With over 1000 km of hiking trails, Mafate is truly a hiking and nature paradise. From here you will have a spectacular view of the highest mountains of the Indian Ocean, the "Piton des Neiges" - the peaks of the snow. On the way back you will stop at a geranium plantation where you will learn how to make perfume. Afterwards, you will visit the local fruit and craft market of St. Paul, where you can find and buy many typical products of the island. At 12:30 you will return to your hotel.
