Mauritius is not only a destination for seaside holidays, but also a place to do some great hikes. However, without a local guide, hiking is difficult. Often the hikes are not signposted and you will not even find their starting point. And if once started on a trail, you cannot expect it to be marked. There will also be a lot of junctions waiting to mislead you, most of them ending in the covert or in front of a fence or locked door.
I would like to point out some special hikes that I have done in Mauritius that are possible to do on your own. I explicitly address responsible and experienced hikers that to go out on their own instead of with a guide.
Many other great hikes are already documented on the website of Explore Mauritius. I can recommend the following hikes:
