Découverte des tunnels de lave avec Spéléolave (Tunnel gendarme)

Did you know that the bowels of the island are home to geological wonders? Teddy, a Spéléo'lave guide, offers you the chance to discover them in small groups, guaranteeing a unique experience that respects our heritage.

The Spéléo'lave outings begin with an approach walk along the St Philippe coast: on this wild coast, where lava flows have been superimposed for millennia, Teddy talks to us about the diversity of Reunion's landscapes and its unique biodiversity.

Equipped with helmets and lamps, visitors then descend into the depths of the earth and explore the underground galleries of the lava tunnel. Under the subdued lighting, smooth, undulating walls give way to blocks of rough gravel, revealing the tunnel's silent history. Teddy takes advantage of these atypical settings to tell little anecdotes and remind us of the importance of preserving this fragile environment.

Throughout his outings, he distils his messages of awareness and invites his groups to adopt simple gestures to protect our common heritage: avoid eating in the tunnel to limit the proliferation of rats, don't touch the rock faces to avoid the appearance of fungi... This enthusiast also proposes the discovery of lesser-known lava tunnels, such as the Gendarme Tunnel, allowing the most curious to discover true geological wonders in complete tranquillity. A voluntary approach that redirects visitor flows, while highlighting exceptional sites that are still little known to the general public.
