After a successful first trip on the Azores, it’s now time for the second drone trip, this time on the beautiful island of La Réunion 🇷🇪 in September!

La Réunion is a French tropical island in the Indian Ocean, next to Mauritius and not too far from Madagascar. It’s famous for it’s insane Jurassic Park like mountains (highest 3069m), with an abundance of waterfalls everywhere and cool black sand beaches. The island sits on top of one of the most active volcanic hot spots in the world. The last eruption dates only from April this year! The volcano ‘Piton de la Fournaise’ erupts several times a year, so maybe we get lucky and we can drone some lava! How cool would that be 😍

Simplified drawing of the island

La Réunion is an official department of France and therefor part of Europe. They speak French, use the Euro as a currency and have a high standard of living. Which also makes the island rather expensive, unfortunately for us 😅 The best months – from a climate perspective – are considered to be August-September, however the holiday season is July-August, which makes September the perfect month to visit and a tad less expensive.

A magical trip

The Azores adventure in May 2021 was a magical trip. I had more fun pushing my limits that week than in a year of droning over flatland.

Once in a lifetime experience

For me it was a once in a lifetime experience. A trip full of activities and lot of tips & tricks to make my drone shots go from ‘OK shots’ to ‘WOW shots’ 🤩

Stop what you’re doing and go with Johan!

Next to composition and the right timing, I’ve learned that it’s all about pushing your own limits and trusting your gear. The knowledge, adventures & people you get to meet are really worth the trip.

When can I go again?

Dronetrippin’ with Johan was amazing. He showed all the best drone spots and had many tips and tricks to share! Only one question remains … when can I go again!
