How about a trip to New Caledonia? We’ll kayak through the drowned forest, and on to the Forgotten Coast, before laying down our towel on Ouvea’s beaches.
From July to September, we’ll be made to feel tiny by the passing whales. We’ll go diving in the Far West in Bourail, and explore the caves in Koumac.
And through the people we meet, we’ll learn about the customs and cultures that make up these melting pot islands!
