Itinerary idea in detail

With international flights from a choice of airports including London, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

  • Today you begin your journey by boarding your international outbound flight to Mahé Island.

  • On arrival in at Mahé airport, you will be met by an Audley representative who will escort you through the airport and onward to your hotel transfer.

  • This morning you will be collected from your hotel and taken on a fully guided tour of Mahé. On this tour you will discover the natural delights of the island, learn more about its history and plant life as well as sampling some of the local rum.

  • Today you will be collected from your hotel by our local representative and transferred to Mahé's Inter Island Quay. Here you will board the MY Pegasus for a four night relaxed paced cruise around some of the Seychelles' most prestigious islands. On board you can settle into your modestly sized cabin before getting acquainted with your fellow passengers at the outdoor bar upon the sun deck.

  • Start the day by sailing northeast to reach the uninhabited island of Curieuse. The island is still one of the only locations where the native coco de mer palm grows and home to over 300 Aldabra tortoise. Learn about the island's history via a guided walking excursion before retreating to the beach for a barbecue and an afternoon of sea activities.

  • Cared for by Nature Seychelles and BirdLife International, Cousin Island Special Reserve is home to over a quarter million nesting seabirds and is an important breeding site for hawksbill turtles. Sail onward to Anse Lazio Beach on Praslin's northern coast. Regularly named one of the world's most beautiful beaches, Anse Lazio is renowned for its scattering of granite boulders upon white sand and crystal waters teamed with a lush tropical backdrop.

  • The northernmost granitic island in the Seychelles is Aride. It's dedicated to conservation supported through ecotourism and is home to the endemic flowering shrub Wright's Gardenia. A guided hike to the highest point of the island offers an insight into the island's flora and wonderful views of the land and sea below. A Creole evening will theme your final night on board with music, dancing and typical Creole flavours.

  • After breakfast this morning you will disembark your cruise on Praslin's Baie Sainte Anne jetty. A local representative will meet you here and transfer you to your hotel.

  • Today you could take a guided tour of the Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve located at the heart of the island — the park is one of the two locations where the coco de mer palm grows naturally.

  • Hop on the inter-island ferry, which will sail you the 15-minute journey across to the sleepy island of La Digue. Here you can easily rent bicycles and guide yourself around the island, spending the afternoon lazing on the beautiful Anse Source d'Argent beach located in L'Union Estate.

  • Today you will be collected by private car and transferred to Praslin's jetty in order to catch the island ferry. Take in the wonderful vistas as you cruise on the approximate one-hour journey back to Mahé.

  • Today you will be collected from your hotel and transferred to the airport for your flight home. Your return flight will arrive the same day.
