New Caledonia Tour | GR Nord | Small Group Hiking Adventure | Kanak Village Hike

New Caledonia Kanak Village Hike

Be a part of the first commercial groups to walk the unusually biodiverse GR North Track of New Caledonia (GR NORD) which is off the beaten path and far away from the cruise ships and tourist resorts. Driving from the capital of Noumea through the great plains of the West Coast cowboy country, this is in complete contrast to the tropical rainforests of the East Coast where our trek commences. The GR North Track provides a wonderful variety of landscapes, endemic plant species and birdlife, plus an opportunity for cultural encounters, and has everything that the avid hiker who loves nature, open spaces and genuine interactions could desire. We stay in different villages each night and learn about the local way of life and listen to their stories whilst sharing a traditional meal. Whilst the kanak hut accommodation is basic, you will be warmly welcomed and receive the best hospitality. Escorted by an expert guide, the terrain is physically challenging and interesting, and only requires a day pack.
