Tours of the Seychelles allow you to discover its 115 beautiful islands, each with its own unique character and beautiful sandy beach. You’ll also find luscious jungles, home to some incredible animals, as well as an underwater world perfect for snorkelling and scuba diving trips. We’ll help you hop between the most popular islands, as well as discovering new sights and attractions.

Our island hopping tour of the Seychelles, Seychelles Island Hopping Package, allows you to explore some of the world’s most spectacular beaches. See three islands over 12 days and experience the beautiful and history of the area. In Mahe you’ll find markets in the country’s capital, Victoria, and a chance to swim with whale sharks, as well as luxury restaurants overlooking white sands. Praslin island is home to small mountains coated with emerald jungles and hiding fascinating creatures and colourful birds. Trek the jungle where you might see black parrots, and visit one of the top ten beaches in the world. Spend a few days in La Digue, cycling through little towns and following the coastline to L’Union Estate. Here you’ll find giant tortoises, as well as interesting granite rock formations and glorious beaches.

Relax and allow someone else to do the hard work for you on our luxury catamaran tour of the Seychelles. This includes opportunities to swim in crystal clear bays, snorkel and scuba dive.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the official language of the Seychelles?

The Seychelles has three official languages, those being Seychelles Creole, French and English. The most commonly spoken language of the Seychelles is Seychelles Creole, which is a French-based Creole language spoken by almost 95 percent of the population. English is the language of government and business here.

What is the currency used in the Seychelles?

While some hotels and resorts may accept US dollars or even Euros, the Seychellois rupee is the main currency of the Seychelles.

Which Seychelles island suits me best?

Depending on your aspirations, each island brings something different to the table.

Mahé is an ideal starting point for first-time travellers to the Seychelles. As the largest, and most popular island, it’s perfect for walks and trails, and has the biggest selection of activities on offer across the archipelago. Home to the capital, Victoria, you’ll find easy access to supermarkets and fresh produce here. Wherever you base yourself on the island, you’re no more than a short walk or bus ride away from something exciting to do or see here.

Retreat to nature on La Digue, the definitive island dream and arguably the most relaxed of the three main islands. With secluded beaches, aquamarine waters and vivid green jungles shrouding impressive rock formations, it is an absolute must for honeymooners and laidback wanderers.

Straddling the line between Mahé and La Digue is Praslin. The second-largest island in the Seychelles, you’ll enjoy the best of both worlds here, with a small range of bars, restaurants and shops to the east, and pristine beaches, solitude and nature to the west. Here you’ll also find Praslin National Park – a UNESCO World Heritage Site, home to exotic plant life and some of the world’s rarest birds.
