Things to do in Seychelles

Get far from the noise of big city life, lounging on white-sand beaches under the rustle of palm leaves and the relaxing sounds of nature, for such a holiday people tend to go to Seychelles. But having fully relaxed and rejuvenated with the help of the warm waters of the Indian Ocean and serene tropical ambience, they notice a lot of possibilities to vary their leisure. So, what else is there to do in Seychelles except lying on the beach?

Seychelles hiking

Seychelles is a true haven for nature lovers. Overcoming the kilometers of well- marked trails, you get to discover the amazing landscapes of the islands, rare species of plants, animals and birds in absolutely safety.

For example, a black parrot and the Coco-de-Mer palm tree - symbols of Seychelles.
Popular trekking routes take place on the main islands of the archipelago - Mahe, La Digue and Praslin. Each trail is unique for exploring the hidden treasures of Seychelles. Choose any, you can`t go wrong!
