That's not far from what you'll get with a new adventure from Off the Map Travel. The journey will take you to the beautiful remote island of La Reunion where you'll sleep under the stars and lush vegetation in a clear bubble.

It's a volcanic island with a topography reminiscent of Hawaii. You'll get to experience that firsthand because the trek starts with a helicopter flight over the forest and volcano. It ultimately lands at Hiker's Eden, a lodge far from... well, everything.

This trip is kind of like the products in the glass case at a store that says inquire for price. You have to send them a message to get starting prices, and they’ll tailor the journey to what you’re looking for.
