Itinerary

Itenirary
Stop 1 - The Dormant Volcano of Trou Aux Cerf
Start your morning with a leisurely stroll around the crater of Trou Aux Cerf. A much-loved part of the city with stunning views, the dormant volcano is a charming gem overlooking the town of Curepipe and dominates the view over the island. This huge volcanic crater reveals the existence of the paradise island that was formed millions of years ago and is approximately 85 meters in depth and 300 meters wide.
Itenirary
Stop 3 - The Ship Models Factory
Discover the handmade ship models at Voiliers de l’Ocean. This shop could be chosen as one of the most unusual places, giving visitors a real island feel. Watch how skilled local artisans perfect and craft scale models of historical ships, galleons and boats that were used to transport goods and produce to and from the island. Fitting one in your suitcase to take back home may prove difficult but the shop can make arrangements for your purchase to be shipped to you.
Itenirary
Stop 3 - Curepipe Duty Free Boutiques
Moving on from the model ship factory, we will visit the town of Curepipe where you will discover a myriad of small boutiques in a tranquil atmosphere, with no pushy sellers, offering a wide range of goods from cashmere pashminas and garments to jewellery and souvenirs. Most of the shops have been operated for generations and provide the best quality of products exported from Europe and India that have been made using traditional skills and techniques. Indulge your loved one’s fantasies with fashionable times. Don’t forget to bring your passport, as duty-free shopping is widely available.
Itenirary
Stop 4 - Bois Cheri Tea Factory
Leaving Curepipe and descending southbound from the central plateau, you will take in the beautiful views of the landscapes en route to the Bois Cheri Tea Plantation and Factory. Witness how the tea leaves are hand-picked and processed from plant to teapot.
Itenirary
Lunch at the Bois Cheri Restaurant
After the visit, we will take you to their charming restaurant nestled on the hill, where you will feast on a scrumptious traditional lunch. Let the tea sommelier prepare you a nice cup of tea as you sit back in the tranquil atmosphere and take in the dominating views over the tea plantations.
Itenirary
Stop 5 - La Vanille Nature Park
Meet the crocodiles and other wildlife animals at La Vanille Nature Park, hidden in the heart of a tropical rainforest where authenticity, traditions, and landscapes of the olden days have been carefully preserved. Animals include birds, deer, giant tortoises and Nile crocodiles as well as iguana lizards. There is also an insectarium hosting 25,000 species and a museum dedicated to the island’s native extinct flightless dodo bird.
Itenirary
Stop 6 - Seneville Bridge
On our way back, we will stop on one of the highest bridges, which was used for the train transportation of sugar cane harvested from the plantations of the Savanne region. Get the perfect Instagram photo with its fantastic lakeside location and breathtaking views of the lush rainforest of the Savanne region to the southern coast and ocean beyond.
Itenirary
Stop 7 - St Aubin Rum Factory
Visit the factory and distillery of Saint Aubin and relish their famous rum, which they have been producing since 1819. Their white cane rum, made from fresh sugar cane, was awarded a silver medal at the London Spirit Competition in 2018. We are sure you will love it too!
Enjoy a stroll in the garden of the colonial house that was built in the beginning of their expedition back in 1819.
