LOGBOOK

Australian, New Zealand, Japanese, French, Chinese and Italian ... They are 6 travellers to have been selected from over 1,600 candidates to live their “Caledonian Dream”: an incredible road trip in the heart of the Pacific! Follow them along each step of their surprise adventure, as they discover New Caledonia from 2 to 11 October!

Yaté, Blue River Park

Day 9 : Yaté - October 10th 2018
On the last day, not a speck of the rock can be missed! The Caledodreamers go from tip to tip, exploring Blue River Park in the Great South, mountain biking and kayaking before a “farewell” meal.
 

Kanak culture, Isle of Pines

Day 8 : Isle of Pines - October 9th 2018
The second day on the Isle of Pines saw our Caledodreamers meeting the Kuniés, the island's native inhabitants. On the menu: sampling a bougna, a weaving workshop, a tour of the island and sundowners in Kuto to wrap up the day!
 

Oro Bay, Isle of Pines

Day 7 : Isle of Pines - October 8th 2018
After a weekend in Nouméa, where the nights were as action-packed at the day, our 6 Caledodreamers set off on a new adventure. For two days they’ll be exploring the Isle of Pines, jewel of south New Caledonia, also known as the pearl of the Pacific.
 

Marché Moselle, Nouméa

Day 6 : Nouméa - October 7th 2018
You really need more than one day in Nouméa to appreciate it in all its diversity. For that you first of all need to sample its produce (visit the market and go to a cooking class), sit down with some of the locals over a glass of something nice (Garden Party) and explore the nearby attractions (the zip line at Mount Mou).
 

Jetski, Noumea

Day 5 : Nouméa - October 6th 2018
It's time to discover the capital, Nouméa, a blend of the Oceanian and French ways of life with extra fun thrown in for good measure. There's plenty to do here, from visiting museums to jet-skiing off to the nearby islands or lingering over your walk along the beach as you party in the many bars and night clubs.
 

Ouvéa, Loyalty islands

Day 4 : Ouvéa - October 5th 2018
The adventure continues on Ouvéa Isand with a dive in Kanak country's legendary lagoon. It's sheer magic: the colours, traditions, sharks, cliffs, beaches...
 

Ferme Néméara, Bourail

Day 3 : Bourail - October 4th 2018
It's hard to leave Bourail when every stage of the journey evokes the very best of the Bush: Turtle Bay in the shade of tall and lofty pines, livestock farms with the cattle returning home or the land around Fort Teremba with its stockmen style horse riding.
 
Day 2 : Bourail - October 3rd 2018
As seen from a glass-bottom boat, diving near the coral reef, or from the hills surrounding the Domaine de Deva, the lagoon is a truly enticing sight, made even more magical at sunset with an incredible performance from Gulaan.
 
Day 1 : Bourail - October 2nd 2018
Our 6 globetrotters came from all 4 corners of the earth and once in New Caledonia, headed to Bourail in central Grande Terre, for the first stage of their adventure, which kicked off with an amazing night at the 5 * Sheraton Deva Resort & Spa.
