4. Hiking

Like biking, hiking through the Seychelles is a wonderful way to explore the islands in a way not many other people have before. Lush vegetation and spectacular scenery surround you as you journey through the mountainous climate, providing ample opportunity for photographs that will impress everybody back home. There is a diverse and exciting collection of birdlife in the mountains, which can either be discovered in the wild or in wildlife reserves. Most hikes are day trips and require an average fitness level, making them ideal for tourists who are not quite ready to go on a seven day hike!
