La Reunion - Island
Reunion is primarily a mountainous and volcanic island. It is the only region in the world which combines an extinct volcano, the Piton des Neiges, which culminates at 3070 meters (over 10,000 feet), and one of the most active volcanos on the planet, the Piton de la Fournaise. This specificity has allowed the island to be listed a UNESCO World Heritage site since August 2010 as the "Pitons, cirques and remparts of Reunion island".
Reunion offers numerous tracks for all levels. You ought to check with local professionals to know the current conditions of the tracks.
La Reunion became well known for hosting the "Mégavalanche" which departs at 2000 meters altitude and arrives on the beach of St Paul. This sport event attracts champions from all over the world.
