WATCH: Reunion - An island of delights

Cape Town - There are certain places that  dish up servings of adventure more so than others and the Island of Reunion would definitely be one of those - in addition to savouring the creole island delights in its cuisine and hanging out with the interesting locals. 

While Reunion is most famous for being one of the most active Volcanoes in the world, having recently erupt only just a few months ago in February 2015 - not many people know just how the volcano has shaped the tourism offering on this island. 

Think hiking through the ancient cirques, canyoning in what can best be described as an wildly impressive aquatic trek across the waterfalls of the island  and of course the surreal experience of touring through the dormant lava tubes of the island.  

Watch this encapsulating video of Reunion, which will surely change everything you think you knew and would expect from an island escape.
