Make your journey in New Caledonia an adventure

Horseback riding trails

New Caledonia is a dream destination for all nature lovers. Here horseback riding is somewhat of an institution, as if it were part of the local cultural heritage. The island harbors a wealth of unique riding trails that will take you through eye-enticing scenery. From savannas to mountains and immaculate beaches, discover hidden spots you wouldn’t be able to reach on foot.

Outdoor sports galore

In New Caledonia, outdoor sports are extremely popular. Whether you are travelling with family or friends, choose from a wide array of adventure sports. No matter your level, you will find the perfect activity to suit your needs. So just take your pick and indulge! A few years ago, two long-distance backpacking trails (GR® certified) opened. One is located in the South Province, the other in the North Province.

Magnificient Malaoui Peak

Located minutes from Noumea, the Malaoui Peak overlooks the city. Climbing amateurs will depart from the Mont Koghi Auberge and follow a trekking trail that does require some endurance. The exceptional panorama is well-worth the effort!

Lifou’s caves

In Luengoni, your guide will take you on a 2.5 kilometer hike along the coast in order to reach breathtaking coral cliffs from which you will contemplate spectacular views. Lifou is also famous for its mysterious caves and magnificent waterholes that dot the lush forest.

The islands inland treasures

From caves waiting to be explored to lush forests permeated by kanak legends, the islands offer visitors various hiking options, many of which can be enjoyed as a family activity.
