Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Begin your day of adventure on Mauritius with convenient pickup at your hotel anywhere on the island. Pickup time varies according to your location, please see Additional Information section for details. 

    Climb into a comfortable tour vehicle with your guide and group of 15 people or fewer and relax during the journey. Your guide will provide commentary on the passing sights, including native flora and fauna. Pass through Le Morne, La Prairie, and Macondé on the way to Chamarel in the Rivière Noire District. 

    Arrive at Chamarel Waterfall, the country's tallest, which plunges 328 feet (100 meters) against a natural backdrop and makes for impressive photos. Next stop is the famous Seven Coloured Earth, a rainbow of striated volcanic rocks. 

    Continue to the La Rhumerie de Chamarel distillery, where you will sample the spirits and enjoy a traditional Mauritian 3-course lunch. 

    Following lunch, travel to a viewpoint over Black River Gorges National Park, then the secluded Grand Bassin Lake and the enormous volcanic crater Trou aux Cerfs. 

    The day's last stop is the Shop of Ship Model, where you can see skilled craftsmen at work on ship miniatures, some of which take months. 

    End your full day of exploration with drop-off back at your hotel.
