Well worth taking the time to get off the beaches and into the National park. The short trek through the rainforest is exceptional and to the top takes anything between 25 and 45 minutes depending on your pace. Once on the top after a short...More

The trail is not very difficult, but not the easiest either. About 45 minutes, relatively steep and slippery. I guess that with rain it can be even dangerous. The view you get from the top of mount Copolia on Victoria and the islands is spectacular....More

This is a 35 - 45 minute trail up hill and best come prepared in sneakers and travel light. The view at the top of the trail is amazing but can be dangerous if one goes too close to the edge with no guard rails...More

My husband and I enjoyed this hike while visiting Mahe for a few days. It wasn’t too long, did have a few steep areas, but not difficult for us. The trail is mostly shaded, but it still gets very hot and humid, be sure to...More

Yes, absolutely. It's reasonably well marked and none of it is too difficult.

Copolia and Morne Blanc gives you a birds eye view of Mahe Island. If hiking is on your to-do list and you don’t mind manoeuvering through trees and climbing a little steep climb, then you should choose Copolia Trail. You... More
