Hike up Morne Blanc

The Seychelles enjoys a rich diversity of flora and fauna, it has over 40% of its land mass designated as National Parks. If you want to experience some amazing moments in the Seychelles’ beautiful forest, then the Morne Seychellois National Park located on Mahé is the place to be. The National Park is situated on the northern side of the island, directly to the west of Victoria City.
Consisting of various natural habitats and ecosystems, the park contains a large portion of the only remaining indigenous forest of the Seychelles. Through the dense mountainous forest, you can spot a variety of different species. It is home to many endemic birds of the Seychelles, notably the Seychelles bulbul, the Seychelles swiftlet, Seychelles kestrel, Seychelles blue pigeon, Seychelles scope owls, Seychelles white-eyes and the Seychelles sunbird.
The National Park offers the unique opportunity to discover one of the world’s smallest frogs- the Sooglossus gardineri frog. Only found in the Seychelles, this minuscule frog is 1 centimetre in length and finding one can be an adventure in itself!

If you enjoy hiking then you can hike up Morne Blanc. Standing at 667 metres, Morne Blanc offers panoramic views of Mahe’s western coast. The trail makes a continuous climb from an already high altitude in Morne Seychellois National Park. You will pass through an old tea plantation along slopes with lemon grass. On a clear day you will see the neighbouring islands and lush hills.
