Seychelles Island Explorer

This Seychelles island hopping itinerary includes the two main Seychelles islands of Mahe and Praslin with a short visit to the stunning Bird Island.

Mahe's rainforests seem to begin right from the beautiful white sandy beaches and coves and climb up and around the dramatic granite rocks of this mountainous island.

Mahe is a great island to explore, including the waterfront and the capital, Victoria.

From Mahe, it's a 30-minute scenic flight to Bird Island, a tiny island surrounded by the most incredible turquoise blue and white sandy beaches.

Bird Island is a natural paradise and is aptly named because of its Sooty Tern bird colony. It's also famous for the female turtles which come ashore to lay their eggs between October and February.

From Bird Island, fly on to Praslin Island, via Mahe, for the remainder of your holiday.

Praslin is the second largest island in the Seychelles and has a very different feel to Mahe.

There are plenty of powder soft beaches, more rainforested mountains and the famous Vallee De Mai National Park where you can see the unique giant double coconut of the Coco de Mer as well as the rare Black Parrot.

As with all of our holidays to the Seychelles, this one can be tailored to suit you, so just let us know your preferences.

Which Airlines do you use?

We work with all the major airlines flying to the Seychelles.

Typically for the Seychelles we will use British Airways for direct flights.

There are currently twice-weekly flights from Heathrow (Wednesdays and Saturdays) direct to Mahe using the Dreamliner.

The flying time for direct flights is around 10 hours, making the Seychelles a little shorter flying time than going to South East Asia.

We also commonly use Emirates via Dubai, Qatar Airways via Doha and Etihad via Abu Dhabi. These all allow stopover options in the Arabian Gulf to create a multi-centre holiday.

Regional connections from across the UK are available.

Which Hotels do you use?

We're careful with our choice of resorts in the Seychelles, but we're guided by our customers also. If you have some preferred hotels, just let us know.

We specialise in boutique hotels and so we will often suggest some of our favourite smaller hotels where we think these will be suitable.

This particular Seychelles three-centre holiday is based on a stay in boutique hotels on three different islands.

Do I need a visa for the Seychelles?

If you're travelling on British Passports, no visa is required for stays of up to a month.

Please double check before travel however as visa requirements are subject to change at any time.

How long have you been organising holidays to the Seychelles?

We've been organising tailor made holidays to the Seychelles since 2009.

We use a very reliable local partner in the Seychelles for our tours and transfers and to assist our clients in the Seychelles. They are a family owned company who are one of the most established and respected local travel companies.

We keep up to date with developments in the Seychelles with regular visits and through our local contacts.

When is the best time to visit the Seychelles?

The driest time of year to visit the Seychelles is normally between June and September.

April to May and October to November can be the best value times of year to visit the Seychelles as these are shoulder-season periods.
