What is the best tour in the great south? That is a question that a few of our clients recently asked us! The Great South of New Caledonia is indeed a land of contrast and variety and many options exist.

You know it as well, as we do: everyone has its own likings and tastes. Determining the best tour is always a challenge. Here is our attempt to answer this question:

  1. The blue river park: a wonder in wonderland!

Created in 1998 to safeguard this unique environment, the blue river park is the perfect place for nature lovers.  The blue river park is a provincial park (equivalent to a national park in many countries) and protection efforts have been substantial here. Since its creation, the population of Cagous (the flightless endemic bird) has doubled, for example.

The forest also hosts a giant Kaori tree (more than 1000 years old), and many endemic plants and trees. Lots have also been done to welcome visitors, including picnic sites, shuttles inside the park, signboards, bike rentals… The blue river is really a must do in New Caledonia.
