Full description
Ile Aux Aigrittes will be restored as closely as possible to what it was like more than 400 years ago: a sanctuary for flora and fauna found nowhere else in the world.

All tours are accompanied by an enthusiastic and knowledgeable ranger, who will share facts, stories and colorful local anecdotes with you.

You will have the unique opportunity of encountering the flora and fauna in their natural environment, with beautiful and unusual Pink Pigeons, distant cousins of the Dodo, gazing down at you from above, or perhaps the very rare Olive White-eye and Mauritius Fody flying from branch to branch of the native bois de boeuf, bois chandelle, or bois de pipe.
