Gluten Free Travel-Us has just introduced a new gluten free itinerary for the Seychelles Islands, an archipelago of 115 islands off the coast of east Africa in the Indian Ocean. She has already received rave reviews from some gluten free clients who just returned from a trip she planned for them there. This exotic destination offers beautiful beaches, coral reefs, rainforests, a national park, nature reserves, and rare animals. The sample itinerary below includes 5 nights on each of two different islands, but the itinerary may be shortened to 4 nights on each island. The trip can be done as either a 4-star, first-class trip or a 5-star, luxury experience. Activities can also be customized based on your interests, and pricing depends on your length of stay, point of departure, and other factors.
