What better way to discover the authentic Mauritius other than to ride an electric bike, at your own pace, through the villages and country-side of the island accompanied by one of the professional guides of DunienZîl?

All our tours are within easy reach to one and all, thanks to the integrated electric motor of our bikes, the only limit is your sense of adventure! DunienZîl carefully plans and supervises every electric bike tour and ensures its safety vehicle is present.

DunienZîl revises its excursions regularly in order to adapt to the needs of its clientele. Thus, all our tours offer a half day or full day visit to enable you to enjoy lunch at a local, or at carefully selected typical Mauritian sites for more authenticity. .

Whether you choose a tour of the north, south, east or west of Mauritius, you will be immediately charmed by the breath taking landscapes, turquoise sea, untouched beaches of white sand, imposing cliffs and stunning waterfalls. You will meet the locals, discover Mauritian culture and hospitality, taste delicious local flavours and be amazed by the history of our nation.

Enjoy a unique wilderness experience in Wolmar’s private estate, near Flic-en Flac, called “Chassé de Wolmar” where deer, monkeys and wild boars roam freely.

This guided tour in the West of Mauritius, is particularly suited for our Fat Bike as it will enable you to ride off the beaten track, and go closer to the animals and discover their natural habitat.

During your holidays in Mauritius, far from the popular tourist sites and the crowded beaches, you will be immersed in a natural and green environment. You will also have the opportunity to discover bees at work in their hives and observe an open-air coal factory, a trade that is part of the ancestral heritage of Mauritius. We guarantee you a real change of scenery during your visit on the island.

Thanks to its oversized wheels, the Fat Bike provides the best way to circulate in an optimal comfort on the sandy paths and allows you to observe endemic plants all along your way in complete safety.
