Videos for thrill seekers

Here are two recent videos which definitely show some of Reunion's possibilities for adventure.

In the first one, by Epic TV, Réunion plays host to wingsuit pilots Espen Fadnes, Jokke Sommer and Ludo Woerth. Between BASE jumps, they find time to explore  Reunion's waterfalls and cliff diving, but their wingsuit jump is still top priority. After days of planning and scouting, including an ultralight flight and wingsuit jump to scout out the area, the three pilots are ready for a flight from the top of Piton des Neiges (the tallest mountain in the Indian Ocean). But first they must get to the top...


In the second video the local organisation "Slack and run" equip and cross a highline at over 2100 metres altitude at the Trois Salazes Ridge separating Cilaos and Mafate. It's a site that offers a 360 ° panorama at the heart of Reunion (Images : Jean-Philippe Lorgeau & Jean Galabert; Editing : Jean Galabert). Don't watch if you have vertigo!

This second video was featured in the Daily Telegraph, see:
