Caressed by the enchanting Indian Ocean, Seychelles is an archipelago of more than 100 islands. A haven for visitors, these beautiful islands offer some of the world's most picturesque beaches, nature reserves and coral reefs. With a perpetually warm climate that is enhanced by a refreshing sea breeze, the average sea temperature rarely drops below 27°.

I can’t think of a more ideal setting for a host of activities and excursions!

Top five Seychelles excursions

1. Boat Charter Tours

Enjoy the diversity of the island-hopping experience - a luxury boat will visit Praslin, Curieuse and La Digue, amongst others. Explore the lush green tropical landscapes, pet the mighty Aldabra tortoises, wander the glorious beaches and marvel at the nature reserves and heritage monuments. This is a great way to see the islands.

2. Coco Trail Guided Tour

For adventurers, young and old; trek the coco trail on La Digue Island to discover unique places, animals and plants - in particular, the famous Coco de Mer palms of the Seychelles. Hike from Grand Anse to Anse Marron at the southern tip of the island, where stunning offshore rocks shelter a natural lagoon where safe and tranquil waters will tempt you into the Ocean.

3. Snorkelling and Scuba Diving

Cruise the Ocean on a luxury vessel, with fine food and drink to complement our diving excursions - the Seychelles' warm and crystal clear waters beckon! Snorkelling and scuba diving are two of the most enjoyable activities around the islands. With knowledgeable tour guides to assist you throughout the trip, the technicolour marine life and beautiful coral reefs will unfold before your very eyes as you explore tropical sea.

4. Takamaka Rum Distillery

The rum distillery on Mahe Island welcomes the discerning visitor to sample one of the Seychelles' most popular exports, premium rum - brewed from natural water collected from the Vallée de Mai and the legendary Coco de Mer plants. You will dine at the restaurant before being invited to buy some of the local ‘delicacies’ from the distillery shop – what a great idea for take-home gifts!

5. Golfing Trip

The Seychelles offers a wonderfully mild climate that's ideal for golf. Enhanced by the natural beauty of the island's green hills, the Seychelles Golf Club at Anse aux Pins on the island of Mahe offers players the chance to complete a round at the challenging 4,992-yard course.
