Full description
A 4WD vehicle will take you from the designated meeting point through a private estate in which RESA deer, wild pigs, and numerous bird species including pheasant, quail, and guinea-foul reside. Begin the hike and traverse along the North-Western base of the mountain, allowing for two panoramic perspectives of the mountain to be appreciated of the North Western and South Eastern flanks. The initial hike follows an undulating path that is designed to warm up your muscles and elevate your heart-rate before the scrambling and climbing sections begin. At 340 meters above sea level, you will have a safety and mountain security briefing prior to the first of the four scrambling and climbing sections. There is a 70-meter, 25-meter, 15-meter, and 10-meter section. They provide the most spectacular views of the lush mountain ranges of Chamarel as well as stunningly beautiful lagoon views of both the North-Western and South-Eastern coasts that extend in front of you to the horizon. Various rest points provide a unique opportunity for the team to take memorable photographs of you and your family so that the once-in-a-lifetime experience can never be forgotten. Arrive at the summit of the V with a just reward for all of your efforts and hard work as the views are well worth it. The team will provide you with additional information, whilst taking photographs and allowing you the opportunity to have a break and appreciate the location and its amazing surroundings. The descent down the mountain will begin under the watchful eye of the highly experienced and professional team. Return to the meeting point and then depart to your accommodation.

We had a fantastic time with Bryn climbing Le Morne. He is a knowledgeable and experienced guide, who will take the time to explain your surroundings and what is happening on the mountain. Safety and the enjoyment of his guests is his primary concern and at no point did we feel unsafe or worried on the mountain. The early start will get you up and down the mountain without getting stuck with the bulk of the visitors to the mountain, and in plenty of time to head onto the peninsula for lunch. He is first aid trained and was steadfast when my partner suffered heatstroke and made her feel safe and at ease. Having climbed a few mountains in the past, I cannot recommend Bryn and Explorers Mauritius enough.

Absolutely recommend it to everyone spending time in Mauritius. Bryn is not only a fantastically experienced and trained hiker but also a walking encyclopedia of Mauritius facts and history. Me and my partner are not experienced hikers and Bryn made us feel safe and accompanied the entire time. He explained how to climb and how to prevent accidents all while maintaining a great sense of humor and fun attitude which made us all very comfortable with the hike. You also have the added bonus of arriving earlier than any other group by going with Bryn since he has exclusive access to start his climb earlier and therefore enjoy a much more exclusive experience of the mountain and it's views. Fantastic experience overall.

Bryn was an incredible host. He's very knowledgeable, entertaining, caring and insightful. He made the experience (which is already stunning) even more special and memorable with his unique insight and genuine passion. His photos were a big differentiator too - very impressive skills from some unique angles! I cannot recommend Bryn any more. Le Morne is also stunning, a beautiful mountain that is superbly well maintained - a must visit for any Mauritius holidayer.
