“Reunion mountains & volcano”
Reviewed 26 March 2011

Dont go on a helicopter trip unless they can take you over the volcano as sometimes its covered in cloud.The craters can easily be seen by driving to Cilaos and the crater edge at Maido near St Paul.Its a spectacular view and a lot less noisy ,expensive and far better than the quite tiny helicopter windows.Drive to piton Maido and chose your picnic table on the way back down.The roads are bendy but quite good...better in fact than Hardknott pass Cumbria even if the tarmac has minor pot holes.
