We would like to thank Deborah from Provincial Living magazine for having chosen Oleti Tours in partnership with New Caledonia Outdoors to organize their one week New Caledonia holiday package entitled « French Immersion Tour ».
Thanks also to all the members of the group who joined Debbie for the tour: Kerrie, Marjorie, Jeff, Helen, Darren, Sue, Donna, Becca and Alex, Oleti for having been our guests. It’s been a true pleasure getting to meet you and we really hope to see you again !
Simply a GREAT week! Sunny and warm weather, delicious food, beautiful scenery, nice people met along the way !
On day 1, after a visit to Noumea’s market, the group was led to the Tjibaou Cultural Center, where a guided visit, a coconut leaves weaving class and a picnic were organized.
An excursion to the splendid landscapes of the Great South of New Caledonia was organized on Day 2 : the group discovered the ruins of Prony Village and went to the southern point of New Caledonia mainland, Cap N’Dua lighthouse to enjoy the splendid view over the ocean.
Day 3 was a culinary tour with a cooking class and a delicious food tasting along the day. Yummy !
The next day (day 4) the group enjoyed a day at the Amedee island, for a visit to the light house (remember painful calves the next morning 😉 ), some snorkeling with the turtles, followed by polynesian dances and a meal on the island.
On day 5, the west coast tour led the group to the Tribe of Oui Poin : discovery of life in the tribe, of local plants and their usage, followed by a bougna, the traditional kanak dish.
The last day (Day 6) : the group discovered the city center of Noumea : all the secrets of Coconut square where revealed and a visit to the City museum (the former city town hall) was organized. After French crepes for lunch, a visit to the aquarium of Noumea was organized in the afternoon.
Unfortunately all good things come to an end, and the next day everyone had to go back home. 🙁 But we will sure meet again! 🙂
