The Concept

Set on the idyllic Anse Vata beachfront, this 8-day immersive tour features daily buffet breakfast and numerous island activities including Kanak cultural events and a day trip to the stunning Amédée lighthouse.

This tour is ideal for beginner and intermediate level learners from years 7 to 12. A native French-speaking teacher will conveniently come to the hotel for 3 hours of French lessons.

Itinerary Day By Day

DAY 1 AUSTRALIA – NOUMÉA

Fly directly from Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane to Noumea with Aircalin. For schools outside of these capital cities there are convenient domestic connections from other Australian airports. On arrival at Tontouta Airport you will transfer by coach to your hotel accommodation on the idyllic Anse Vata beachfront.

DAY 2 NOUMÉA (B, D)

After a full French-style buffet breakfast at the hotel, you will have your first one-hour French lesson in a private room allocated for your classes. The lessons are focused on conversational French and will give students a number of useful phrases and expressions that you can practise during your time in New Caledonia.
Dinner is included this evening, at your hotel.

DAY 3 NOUMÉA (B, D)

After breakfast at the hotel, you will have another French lesson that will be aimed at improving your speaking skills. The remainder of the day is free for your own activities with your teachers. There are a number of fantastic optional excursions that are available for you to choose from, or you can spend the time simply relaxing, practising your French and enjoying the island lifestyle. Dinner is included this evening.

DAY 4 AMÉDÉE LIGHTHOUSE (B, L)

After an early breakfast you will transfer to Port Moselle at 7.40am for a full day excursion to Amedee Lighthouse. You will take the Mary D boat out to the island and have plenty of time to swim, walk around the island, view the coral reef from glass bottom boats, snorkel, climb the lighthouse and soak up your beautiful surroundings. This excursion also includes a tropical island buffet lunch and performance, which showcases the best of Melanesian culture and dance.

DAYS 5 & 6 NOUMÉA (B, D)

After buffet breakfast at your hotel, you will have free time to explore the beautiful island and practise your French. Our suggestions include:

- A cooking class: learn to make crepes and eat snails
- Visit the brilliant Tjibaou Centre, or Musee de Nouvelle Caledonie for a workshop
- Catch the bus to Le Parc Forestier, and see New Caledonia’s native Flora and Fauna

Dinner is included in one of these evenings.
DAY 7 NOUMÉA (B, D)

After your buffet breakfast at the hotel, it’s time for your final French lesson. Already, in a short space of time the students will notice how much their spoken French has improved.
For today’s activity, we recommend catching the local bus to Geant supermarket. This is a fantastic experience for the students to shop in a French supermarket, and marvel at the beautiful delicatessen and cheese selections. After this final stop off for some last minute shopping, buy a baguette, some ham and cheese and head across to the local park for the best lunch of your trip!

DAY 8 NOUMÉA – AUSTRALIA

After breakfast this morning it is time to say goodbye to New Caledonia and transfer by coach to Tontouta Airport for your flight home.
