Your tailor-made holiday to Seychelles

Giant Aldabran Land Tortoise Esmeralda Marine Park Island Fairy Tern in the Seychelles

If you prefer the relaxed atmosphere of smaller properties, this lovely island-hopping itinerary could be for you. Combining stays at a couple of boutique Seychelles hotels on two different islands - Praslin & Bird - it showcases some of the archipelago's magnificent nature and wildlife, combined with a reasonable amount of relaxation.

Your first 3 nights will be on tiny Bird Island, a coral cay, reached by a 30-minute flight by light aircraft. Accommodation is in relatively simple chalets, but, apart from the powder soft white sand beaches, the main emphasis here is the bird life. There are numerous species, including many migratory and endemic birds, while giant tortoises also 'roam' freely.

You will follow this with 7 nights on the east coast of Praslin at the family-owned Hotel L'Archipel, where cottage-style rooms and dotted around its pretty hillside gardens. Praslin affords excellent opportunities to see a wide selection of the rich variety of Seychelles nature - the Vallée de Mai where the Coco de Mer grows, numerous idyllic beaches including Anse Lazio, excursions to outlying smaller islands, many designated as Special Reserves, such as Curieuse, as well as day trips to the charming neighbouring island of La Digue.

The example quoted is for May 2019 and intended as a guide. Prices include all inter-island flights, private car transfers as well as return flights from London. The length of stay at each hotel may be varied, depending on personal requirements.
