What our specialists say...

This trip is ideal for visitors seeking independence on their trip to the Seychelles, staying in self-catering guesthouses rather than hotels or resorts. Explore two different islands, setting your own pace each day, buying ingredients from the local market or dining at local restaurants. Starting on La Digue, you will spend four days exploring this charming small island by bicycle or traditional ox-cart. Moving on to Mahe, you can use local transport or hire a car to visit some of the superb beaches, enjoy walks in the Morne Peninsula National Park and watersports such as snorkelling.

We recommend this trip for:

  • Mahe
  • La Digue
  • Mahe
