Unexplored hiking tracks
In both the north and the south, Caledonian trails also have the particularity of letting the regions be discovered to the general public. The trails sometimes cross splendid properties or cut out a path through terrain that has been difficult to access up to now. This is a perfect compromise between self-challenge and discovering the wonders of The Pebble.
For the most hardened hikers, the Trans-Caledonian is a must-do during the hiking season. For two days, teams of three people set off on a course that is as magical as it is difficult. This athletic event, one of the most anticipated ones of the year, alternates every year between the provinces of the North and the South, and always offers challenging obstacles for the best athletes.
Hiking as a tradition
You surely understand by now that athletic challenges outdoors is an integral part of the sports DNA of New Caledonia, to the extent that new events are constantly being introduced, season after season, always attracting new participants. Organized by associations or companies, in the red earth of the Great South or in the central mountains, sometimes even put on at night for a difference atmosphere, no hike is alike. And those who love outdoor sports are never disappointed!
