Discover the Cirques of Mafate and Salazie, as well as the Trou de Fer from the air during an unforgettable helicopter flight!

Alongside the Piton des Neiges, the highest peak on Reunion Island, the natural cirques offer varied and exceptional landscapes. From Saint-Pierre heliport, you will fly over two of the cirques: 

The Mafate cirque is the most unspoilt, with no roads, it is only accessible on foot via trails or by helicopter.
The Salazie cirque is the one that benefits from a humid climate and has lush vegetation with the Bélouve and Bébour forests.
You will then admire one of the most beautiful sites of the island, the Trou de Fer, where several waterfalls pour down. 

On the way back, you will fly over the lagoon and admire its colours from the air. 

Local de partida


When making your booking, you will be asked to choose between: 

  • Meeting directly at the heliport (which you will reach by your own means)
  • A transfer organised by our provider from your accommodation. Please note, transfers to Saint-Gilles heliport are only valid from hotels located on the west of the island (from Boucan to Saint-Leu)

É bom saber

  • Time: the exact time of the flight will be confirmed to you the day before in order to benefit from the best possible weather conditions

  • The helicopter used in this activity was manufactured in France by Airbus Hélicoptère. The interior is spacious and offers a panoramic view to fully enjoy the landscape. The cabin has a maximum capacity of 6 passengers and 1 pilot
