It’s true that the Seychelles is known for its tranquility, beauty and charm. But did you know that you can also experience an extreme and adventurous Seychelles? The very mountains and ocean that hold the secret to your relaxation is also the key to the adventures that await you on this magical island.
A host of choices beckon you to experience them from snorkeling to deep sea fishing, sailing and scuba diving. And for activities on dry land, zip lining, horse back riding and rock climbing.
When you are surrounded by water, then the activities need to match that and what better way than to explore the life under the sea with a pair of flippers and snorkels? Or, grab a fishing rod and hop aboard a deep sea fishing boat. And for true adventure, try your hand at windsurfing or surfing. All the islands offer excellent conditions for wave breaks which guests can surf at any level while clear and warm waters make the Seychelles perfect for windsurfing. If you are looking for stronger winds, head out there from May-September although it’s possible to windsurf all year round.
Of course, if you prefer to stay dry then horse back riding, zip lining or rock climbing will be just the ticket! The Icebreaker, or the top of the mountain, is a series of zip lines passing over and through the canopy of trees in the forest covering the hillsides of the Constance Ephelia Resort, offering the most spectacular views over the bay and a series of breathtaking journeys and this correspondent can vouch for the adrenalin rush, having zip lined all the way from top to bottom.
But of course, there are so many other adventurous option which you can choose from when on the exciting island of paradise! Take your pick of motorized or non-motorized sport or cruise the ocean on a 15 meter yacht. Take on one of the many nature trails and then cool off in the turquoise ocean which is an adventure in itself.
The Seychelles has so much to keep the adrenalin pumping and to keep guests returning for not only a relaxing holiday but an exciting one!
