New Caledonia Adventure

Enter a country often overlooked in the South Pacific region beyond the resorts, a place full of endemic rainforest, Melanesian culture and truly unforgettable beaches. Welcome to New Caledonia, and on this six-day Intrepid adventure, you’ll have the chance to snorkel through transparent waters over coral reefs teeming with tropical fish, meet local makers and farmers, and experience the longstanding tribal Kanak traditions with an overnight village stay. This well-paced trip takes you from the bustling French-influenced hub of Noumea along the west coast, with excursions to Blue River National Park and Giant Fern Park. With plenty of quality inclusions, time to relax beachside and a knowledgeable local leader available each step of the way, your New Caledonian escape is the perfect mix of rest and play.
