Day 1 International outbound flight
International outbound flight
Today you begin your journey by boarding your international outbound flight to Mahe Island.
Day 2 La Digue
On landing in Mahe you will be met by an Audley representative who will welcome you to the beautiful islands and show you to the domestic terminal for your light aircraft flight over to Praslin. This flight is only about 15 minutes and you can enjoy the beautiful views over the islands as you go. You will then be taken on a ten minute drive to the port for the short ferry crossing over to La Digue. You will be met on arrival and taken to your hotel where you can relax after your journey.
Day 3 La Digue
Today I'd suggest walking down to the main street where you can hire a bicycle for a couple of days or for the duration of your stay. This is the best way to get around the island and gives you complete independence to go where you want, and when. They come with baskets in the front so you can pack a picnic, and snorkel masks and fins, and explore as you please.

One option for seeing more of the island is to arrange a visit to the Vallée de Mai World heritage site - a twenty hectare palm forest which remains largely unchanged since prehistoric times. Here a guide will show you plants which are endemic to the Seychelles such as the Coco de Mer, and if you're lucky you may even spot the very rare black parrot.
