Grand Raid – October 2017


One of the most sought after events to take place on Reunion Island is the annual Grand Raid, an ultramarathon that challenges not only the physical fitness and strength of competitors but also promises to be great fun for everyone brave enough to take part in the 162km route. This race is known for its striking scenery and 9643 m of elevation that provide participants the opportunity to immerse themselves into the intimacy of Reunion Island’s vast ecosystems.

The Grand Raid has four different categories to choose from, making the race one of the few that can be joined by families or travellers who just want to have a bit of fun. The first category introduces the Diagonale des Fous, secondly the Trail de Bourbon, which after you have the option to choose between Mascareignes and the relay race. Each race will have participants wanting more as you get to explore the breathtakingly majestic island while ticking off that cardio workout you’ve been wanting to do.

 

The Grand Raid 2017 is set to take place between 19 and 22 October and even though bookings are closed, you still have the opportunity to go and watch this spectacular event.

Festival Liberté Métisse


From adrenalin to culture, Reunion Island has it all. Here are some options for the art, music, and literature connoisseur looking to indulge their creative senses while exploring the abundant ethos of Reunion Island.

The Festival Liberté Métisse sums up the exquisiteness of cultures found on Reunion Island. This tropical gem is often described as the land of a thousand faces due to its blend of different cultures, religions and heritages over four centuries. Festival Liberté Métisse aims to celebrate this diversity as it refers to a monumental moment in Reunion Island: the abolition of slavery that had anchored itself in the history of the Creole people.

This year will mark the 8th edition of the Festival Liberté Métisse which will allow people to partake and experience the purity of Creole culture by attending lectures, exhibitions, meetings and cultural festivities set to take place on Reunion Island. Discover the beauty of diversity with a visit to this unique island destination around December 2017!
