Reunion’s tourism industry – marketing the island’s attractions


(Posted 06th March 2015)

Reunion Tourism will exhibit at the Lyon ‘Salon de Randonneur’ which takes place at the city’s International Congress Centre from the 19th to the 21st of March. The show is dedicated to the great outdoors and a key platform for adventure seekers, hikers and mountain bikers and Reunion Island of course meets all expectations and then some more. Three major cross island hiking trails, with a combined length of over 900 kilometres, have been established and are being meticulously maintained, opening up the rugged and spectacularly scenic interior of the island.

In addition does Reunion offer more than 300 kilometres of mountain bike trails of world class standards, just waiting to be discovered. In fact are international cross country cycling competitions regularly taking place on the island, bringing professional and amateur cyclists to the island to measure their skills, against each other and against the demanding courses. Horse riding trails too have been developed and can be explored in the company of an experienced guide.

Reunion clearly is a destination with many varied attractions, from the almost normal beach resort holiday to an active vacation which can meet almost every expectation a visitor can have. The hotel Exsel and Le Relais de l’Hermitage *** will be present on the stand alongside representatives of Reunion Island Tourism, to provide trade fair visitors with all the information they need before they visit the island.
