Trekking Île Maurice
Trekking Île Maurice information
Lonely Planet review
The best way to explore the heaping basalt mound is on a guided hike with this one-man operation headed up by friendly Yan. A nature enthusiast and eighth-generation Mauritian, Yan grew up at the base of Le Morne and wandered the snaking trails well into his teenage years; his father managed one of the five-star resorts nearby. Yan has exclusive permission from the Gambier family – the landowners of Le Morne – to bring tourists through. After Le Morne, consider tagging along on one of Yan's other hiking excursions through Black River Gorges National Park, or perhaps to Tamarin Falls and the Corps de Garde. Discounts are offered to those who participate in multiple outings.
