The Great South region is a paradise for explorers and you will discover why it does fascinate visitors as well as New Caledonian people!
Your guide will pick you up at your hotel. After a 30 minutes’ drive you will stop at the popular water fountain of Plum. Fill in the bottles and embark on the rest of your exploration!
The tour will then lead you to the abandoned scenic village of Prony. Observe the tropical vegetation absorbing the constructions from the early days of colonization. Learn from your guide about the rich history of wood trading in this region.
Then your tour will head towards cap N’Dua, the southern point of New Caledonia mainland. On the way, you will pass before one of the 3 nickel plant of the island, before taking a 7km dirt road to the cap Ndu’a. On arrival at cap N’Dua, enjoy the impressive view.

After lunch, your tour will lead you on the east coast of the island, through port boisé and then Yaté village. This is a long road, but never boring, with always changing vegetation and countrysides. Many stops are included, including at the abandoned Japanese nickel exploitation, and at Wadiana waterfalls.
