Cycling Tour, Seychelles (East Africa)
Seychelles may not seem like a destination for a cycling holiday. However, there are some great places to explore for all levels of cyclists. Cycling in Seychelles is mainly popular on the three largest islands: Mahé, Praslin, and La Digue. One can get around most of these islands on road by bike.
La Digue Island is synonymous with cycling. There are only a few cars on the island so cycling is the main form of transport. Cycling to the renowned Anse Source D’Argent Beach in the Union Estate is a rewarding experience as the road is flat so any rider can visit by bike. The toughest climb is the hill near the south coast beaches such as Anse Cocos, Petite Anse, and Grand Anse. For beginners, biking around La Digue is the best option as the gradual climb is easier to ride and there are fewer vehicles. Bicycle on your own to make other exciting discoveries including rare wildlife, colonial architecture, lush vanilla plantations, and the harbor town of La Passe.
The second most populated island in Seychelles is Praslin. Bikers or cyclists encounter a lot more traffic here than in La Digue. The coastal road on Praslin, known locally as the Consolation Road, offers beautiful views. Cycling the trail through the Vallée De Mai National Park can be a memorable experience. Experienced bikers can actually do the entire loop of the Vallee De Mai and the Consolation Road.
Mahé features some scenic places to check out on a bike. Cycle through the Morne Seychellois National Park or pedal along the North Coast Road from Beau Vallon to the capital city, Victoria. The East Coast Road is shorter but, a beautiful cycle route. Bicycles are the best way to get around Alphonse Island and Desroches Island. The best time to go on a bicycle tour in Seychelles is either at sunrise or sunset.
Cycling Tour in North and South Seychelles
The villas of the north offer bikes to visitors to explore the island in their own way. As people traverse through the dense forest routes of the island they get to savour the beautiful gradients, and take a glimpse of the marvellous sight, and colourful birds along the route. Visitors can also go on a cycling tour to explore the southern part of Seychelles. This is the quietest part of the region where one can explore the mesmerizing beaches like Anse Takamaka and Anse Intendance while riding their bicycle.

Trip to SeychellesVery well executed trip. Ashutosh from HolidaysBox made sure that everything was perfect and guided us throughout our trip to Seychells , he even helped us getting Mahe city tour done when we were in Seychelles by just a call. I Highly Recommend HolidaysBox for a trip to Seychells.
Trip to SeychellesThis is my second booking through Travel Triangle. The support rendered by the travel agent with all necessary details on timely manner is very much appreciable. However, there was communication gap for pick up from Hotel for Day 1 and Day 2 of our trips. This could have been handled better by the agent at Krabi. Other than this, it was perfect coordinating with Travel Triangle!!!
Trip to SeychellesThanks to Sandhya from Holiday box. We enjoyed our trip to Seychelles (La Digue, Praslin, Mahe) !!!
Trip to SeychellesInitially when we tried using Travel Traingle, we were very skeptical. After getting the quotes from several travel agencies we felt a little.more confident. The service from the travel agency, Red Letter Holidays was really great from start to finish. They (Parul from Red Letter Holidays and Shikha from Travel Triangle) would respond to all my queries and the smallest of questions quite rapidly and with a great deal of courteousness Their travel plan for Seychelles was also very good as they ensured to leave plenty of time for rest and relaxation. What surprised me most was that the local contact of Red Letter Holidays took care of us like royalty and made us feel welcome to the Creole culture. A big thank you to Red Letter Holidays and Travel Triangle for making our Honeymoon a special one. Prasanna and Harshini

Trip to SeychellesWe traveled to Seychelles from 16th July to 21st July. Overall, the trip was good but we faced problem regarding our flights. We had our Air Seychelles flight from Mumbai which was more than 12 hours delay leaving us stranded on Mumbai Airport. Also, terminals were different for Mumbai airport as we traveled from Delhi which caused a little difficulty traveling with the luggage as no arrangement was done for transport for different Mumbai airport terminals. The Creole transport services were great in Seychelles and they arranged cabs even after 12 hour flight delay. Domestic flight was arranged from Mahe airport to Praslin as ferry was not available. Travel agent also was cooperative as our planned iteniary was hauch pauch due to flight delay. We covered Praslin and Mahe islands and our stay was at Berjaya Resort at bother the places. We loved our stay at Berjaya Resort. The stay at Berjaya Resort at Mahe Resort. Amazing location and services with quality food. Loved it.
