New Caledonia is a territory of France with it's own currency, the Pacific Franc (XPF), the value of which is tied to the Euro. French is the dominant language here along with several languages of the local indigenous population. The climate here is sub-tropical and very nice, it never really gets very hot or very cold and due to the reliable and generous rainfall everything is green. There is plenty to do here as long as you like to be outdoors and active. We'll post accounts of our various activities and adventures here, and try to include as much information as we can- from experience, we know that it can be difficult to organise activities due to lack of information and the language barrier. Feel free to contact us with any questions or comments!
