Well worth taking the time to get off the beaches and into the National park. The short trek through the rainforest is exceptional and to the top takes anything between 25 and 45 minutes depending on your pace. Once on the top after a short...More

TOP TIP: Go early. If you can be on the trail by 9/9.30am, then the chances are you'll have the place to yourself and it'll be a bit cooler. Later on it gets busier which kind of spoils the ambiance. Copolia isn't a very long...More

Amazing short trek (30 mins climb) at reasonable pace. Track well maintained although can be slippery when wet. Generally steep. The vegetation is stunning and a canopy all the way to the summit. The summit is a huge granite outcrop with the most amazing views...More

The trail is not very difficult, but not the easiest either. About 45 minutes, relatively steep and slippery. I guess that with rain it can be even dangerous. The view you get from the top of mount Copolia on Victoria and the islands is spectacular....More

This is a 35 - 45 minute trail up hill and best come prepared in sneakers and travel light. The view at the top of the trail is amazing but can be dangerous if one goes too close to the edge with no guard rails...More

Copolia and Morne Blanc gives you a birds eye view of Mahe Island. If hiking is on your to-do list and you don’t mind manoeuvering through trees and climbing a little steep climb, then you should choose Copolia Trail. You... More
