With such a dreamlike setting, the Seychelles is, unsurprisingly, a choice place for a honeymoon. But there's much more to do than simply cracking open a bottle of champagne with the loved one in a luxurious hotel. Having earned a reputation as a paradigm of ecotourism, the Seychelles is a top spot to watch birds and giant tortoises in their natural habitat. And a vast living world lies just below the turquoise waters, beckoning divers of all levels. When you tire of beaches you can venture inland on jungle trails, indulge in fine dining or enjoy the sublime laid-back tempo.

Day 2: Mahe Island
Breakfast will be served at your hotel coffee shop. Proceed on a full day discovery tour of Mahe island.
The tour begins with a transfer from the hotel for a stop in the colonial centre of "the world's smallest capital", Victoria. Highlights to visit are the court buildings, museum, post office, Little Ben clock-tower [twin of the one outside London's Victoria Station ]. A turn around the corner takes one to the only set of traffic lights on Mahe island, next to the 'Codevar' building where local crafts, including the renowned Kreol Or [Creole Gold] are on display for sale. A walk across Albert Street leads one to the focal point of the town, its colourful market where stalls of fresh fish, tropical fruits & vegetables, herbs & spices, are displayed in an abundance of fragances. This is followed by a drive across the Sans Soucis mountain pass, with a photo stop at the historical Mission Lodge, en-route to the quaint Creole restaurant for lunch. After lunch, the tour continues around the southern tip of the island to the restored colonial plantation of 'Jardin du Roi', which is steeped in the short history of the Creoles and the Georges family,whose family tree carries a supposed link to Louis XVII of France. A cold drink of home-grown fruit welcomes tourists, before they tour the surrounding plantation of vegetables, exotic fruits, herbs and spices. The rest of the afternoon is for relaxation, with a stop at the Craft Village on the way back to the hotel, at about 16h00
Remainder of the day at your personal disposal. Overnight at your hotel.

Day 6: Final Departure
Breakfast will be served at your hotel coffee shop.
After breakfast you will proceed to the port to board ferry to Mahe Island, followed by onward road transfer to the airport to catch flight back home or to an onward destination.
Mahe, measuring 28km long by 8km wide, is the largest island and cultural and economic hub of the Inner Islands, and the international gateway to Seychelles. It is home to the international airport and the nation's capital, Victoria.
With a backdrop of towering 1000m granite peaks, Mahe is an extraordinary treasure trove of flora that has evolved over centuries of splendid isolation.
Rare endemic plants found nowhere else in the world adorn Mahe's mist forests in mountain strongholds, such as the Jellyfish Tree, the carnivorous Seychelles Pitcher Plant and the Seychelles Vanilla Orchid.
A wicked seductress, Praslin has lots of temptations: stylish lodgings, high-quality restaurants serving the freshest of fish, tangled velvet jungle, curving hills dropping down to gin-clear seas, gorgeous stretches of silky sand edged with palm trees and a slow-motion ambience.
Lying about 45km northeast of Mahe, the second-largest island in the Seychelles falls somewhere between the relative hustle and bustle of Mahe and the sleepiness of La Digue. Like Mahe, Praslin is a granite island, with a ridge of mountains running east-west along the centre. The island is 12km long and 5km across at its widest point. The 5000 inhabitants of Praslin are scattered around the coast in a series of small settlements. The most important from a visitor's perspective are Anse Volbert (also known as Cote d'Or) and Grande Anse. At the southeast tip of the island is Baie Ste Anne, Praslin's main port.
