The trail did provide ample exercise and requires a level of fitness. However the entire hike provided intensely beautiful views all the way up to the ultimate goal, the lookout. The top of the trail was worth all of the effort and provided us with a truly awe moment.

The Copolia Trail leads up to a rocky plateau, where you have a great view of Victoria, Eden Island, the smaller islands off the coast and even Praslin and La Digue in the distance on a clear day. The trail is clearly visible most of the time. It's steep sometimes, but steps have been made out of logs and branches.... More

The Copolia trail is a secure and well maintained hike. It takes about one hour to reach the top. Quite steep at times but totally manageable even for those that don't hike regularly... The view at the top is so rewarding. Pack a snack and lots of water and have a little picnic at the top while enjoying the spectacular... More

We took the bus from Beau Vallon to Victoria in order to get to the Copolia Lodge, where the trail begins. In Victoria, we had to wait 1 hour and 15 minutes for the Copolia bus, as we missed the one at 8:55. The next bus was at 10:20. So we decided to walk 6 km to Copolia Lodge. We... More

Nice trail, takes about 90 minutes back and forth. You have to go up the hill and it requires some effort but still if you go at you own rhythm and are reasonably fit, you will manage. Wear good shoes. The trail is well maintained and no security issues. Beware at the top but still it is large enough. At... More

We went hiking with a guide (Alrick from Discovery Agri tour, highly recommended). Our family of 4 (2 kids, 4 1/2 and nearly 2) had quite a hard time hiking, as we had to carry our little one all the time. But my 4 years old son really enjoyed it: it was challenging for him, withoutbeing too difficult (he loves... More

Beautifull trip through the bush to reach Copolia pick. Badamier and takamaka's trees all around you, thousands of root's steps covered of ferns , and after 3km of going up the terrific view of the lagoon and Eden Island. Just on a little terrace of granitic rocks, with only the voice of the wind and the superb colour of the... More

A very steep 45 min. climb up a trail within the lush tropical forest of Mahe which ends in a truly breathtaking view of Seychelles and many islands, the airport, the island of Eden, and the many shades of blue surrounding the islands. The climb is difficult and you get soaked in sweat so be well prepared. The view is... More

This is a moderate hike with a steep grade but short. The views at the end are well worth it and I would recommend to any outdoor enthusiast !

We walked this trail with our 3 year old and our baby in a backpack. I had been told it was flat with a climb at the end. What rubbish! It is very steep most of the way. I would only attempt this if you are moderately fit and wearing stout shoes. Our 3 year old managed it only due... More
