Hike, ride, discover, dive or relax... New Caledonia is full of experiences that will make your heart soar. The archipelago will fuel your travel with a thousand emotions from A for adrenaline, to Z for zen!
A popular hiking destination, New Caledonia has two long-distance footpaths (Grande Randonnées) in the north and south for amateurs and more experienced hikers. The GR®1 in the North will lead you through the mountain range to the heart of the Melanesian world, from Ponérihouen to Touho. This sporty adventure also includes tribal accommodation along the East Coast!
If you're always on the lookout for extreme adventures, the Côte Oubliée is the place to go. This untouched and uninhabited wilderness between Yaté and Thio offers a total escape from everyday life. Only accessible by sea and under the supervision of a guide, you can explore this pristine region by kayak, having packed camping equipment and supplies for 4 days.
Let your inner Indiana Jones go wild as you speed around 270 hectares of private property on a quad bike. In Sarraméa, in the region of La Foa, the trails that crisscross the hills are ideal for off-road adventures. Thrills and breathtaking views guaranteed!
The archipelago is home to the second largest barrier reef in the world, and Poindimié is one of the best places to see it up close thanks to its beautiful dive spots! Under the water, a spectacular garden of coral and multicoloured fish unfurls before your eyes.
Embrace your inner Tarzan/Jane in New Caledonia! More exciting than swinging from a vine, the Mount Mou ziplines, suspended up to 80 metres above the heart of the rainforest, offer guaranteed thrills and breathtaking 360° views. Well worth the vertigo!
New Caledonia is a paradise for divers and fishermen alike. Whether you’re an amateur or a dedicated enthusiast, the Pacific has it all (tuna, brassy trevally, loach...). More experienced anglers can also give big-game fishing a try.
From thrill-seekers to sunbathers, there is something for everyone in the Nouméa lagoon. One of the most exciting ways to discover the islets is via jet ski. Rent a jet ski by the hour or by the day and skim over the waves to the smooth and clear waters of the islets. Feel the freedom wash over you as you ride away from the coast!
Nestled between the sea and the mountains of the Domaine de Deva in Bourail, the most luxurious New Caledonian golf course does not disappoint. The highly technical 18-hole course offers professional coaching and views of the stunning lagoon. Find the perfect balance between sporting fun and tranquility in the adjoining 5-star resort.
There is only one surf spot worth mentioning in New Caledonia: Bourail! A little known destination with a nice swell, 4 foot waves, and clear warm water. The waves at Roche Percée Beach are a great place to start, but to really make the most of the conditions you can take a boat out to the coral reef.
