The Seychelles Tourism Board just announced the exciting news. They will launch the Seychelles Nature Trail (SNT) competition, to be held in May 2020.

This is the first of its kind on the beautiful island and the SNT is hoped to add to the prestige of the already multifaceted destination, the organisation said in an official statement. Furthermore, it aims at promoting the archipelago’s concept of green tourism as well as enticing potential visitors’ to the discovery of Seychelles’ rich biodiversity.

The 25km trail run will be held on Mahé on May 3, 2020 and will start in the region of Port-Glaud round Anse Major, through the well-known hiking routes including the Mont Le Niol and Congo Rouge area finishing at Grand Anse. The event plans on attracting and engaging nature- and sport enthusiasts in the region and across the globe to Seychelles.

The announcement was made by the STB Chief Executive Sherin Francis in the presence of Mrs. Bernadette Willemin, STB Regional Director for Europe, Ms. Bernadette Honoré, the STB representative in Reunion – who initiated the project with the support of Christian Hamer and Veronique Victor (directors of the trail) – and various partners on-board to make the project a success in Seychelles next year. 

Francis mentioned her satisfaction to add another event to the destination’s profile on the international level.

The SNT event projects the destinations towards an adventure that will open great doors for the destination, we have seen how big in publicity the recent trail event “Diagonale des Fous” which closed a few days ago to our fellow islanders in Reunion. We can only anticipate great participation from the region and hope that the beauty of our Islands will attract potential runners from all over the world,’ she said.
