We invite you to a discovery in tune with your emotions.
In the north you will find lush vegetation and mountains where forests, rivers and black volcanic sand beaches follow one another in a ballet of biological diversity. A majestic frame where an atypical fauna is hidden.
Then discover the centre of the island and its mix of urban concentrated culture and rural areas sprinkled with small islands of greenery.
Then the forests of the south of the island which have nothing to envy to those of the north thanks to their particularities: the mangroves and dry stretches and the coastlines with their singular beauty.
At the bend of a hidden shoreline, discover a country steeped in tradition and heritage in the heart of the unspoilt nature of our beautiful island. The Ioüanacéra team has identified original places, offering an ideal setting for activities such as hiking, discovery, relaxation and well-being.
Our professional guides and our partners constitute a passionate team that welcomes you with cordiality and listens to you to offer you a close accompaniment for a poetic reading of the surroundings and a reconnection to yourself and to nature. You can enjoy healthy, local and seasonal food at our brunches or lunches and other snacks.
Away from the hustle and bustle of the world and the noise of the cities, you can focus on the essentials in a unique universe while respecting nature and the local culture. Whether you are looking for tranquillity, relaxation or discovery, Ioüanacéra’s programme of excursions to discover our beautiful country is there for you. All the walks we propose can be done in group, with friends, with family or on demand!
Our values & commitments
Respect is at the heart of all our relationships. It is a value that we put into practice every day for everyone. Respect for people: customers, service providers… But also respect for the land, the environment and our patrimony.
Our getaways are breaks to disconnect from the urban world and reconnect with yourself.
Our values are to listen to our clients, to develop warm relationships with them, to appreciate beauty where it is hidden and to restore people’s capacity for wonder.
Discovering enchanting landscapes while taking your time, fully immersing yourself in the nature that surrounds you, privileging encounters and savouring the pleasures of the table.
Since the beginning of our adventure, responsible tourism has been at the heart of our spirit; by essence, our stays are low-polluting. Our activity contributes to the discovery and highlighting the beauties of our island and we build balanced and long term relationships with our partners.
I cherish nature and the environment for a very long time now. Self-taught but curious, I had the desire to make it my profession. To do so, I followed two training courses, the first a CS GREEN TOURISM, the second, Eco Tourism Accompanist. Once I had completed my training, I started to create my own business in order to help people discover & rediscover our island.
During the walks, I relate the heritage received from the first inhabitants of the island, the Amerindians. The name IOÜANACÉRA (which means iguana island) is one of them.
Through the objects, the vocabulary and certain traditions, I honour these peoples who set up nature as a deity, the same nature that we walk through on our circuits.
In the north: green walks up the river, immersion in a vegetal and mineral universe, unexpected encounters with the local fauna.
In the south: along the coastline where we take advantage of its benefits.
Slow tourism is becoming increasingly popular. Many people today are becoming slow tourism enthusiasts. Their philosophy is quite simple: they have decided to take their time, to rest, to stop spending their holidays in the stress of transport and to stop racing. Slow tourism is about enjoying your holiday to the full.
This type of tourism is more authentic and allows you to live as close as possible to the local population and to learn more about them. The aim is to soak up as much as possible the place you are exploring, while avoiding crowds.
We invite you to a moment of poetic ecology, to marvel again through the forests and along the coastlines of our island.
See the beauty where it is hidden, take a few moments to observe and, around a bend in the path, catch a glimpse of the totem animal that will make this interlude the antidote to the madness of our time.
