The value-for-money packages are expected to be popular with New Zealanders who want to experience the best of French culture and cuisine - without travelling to Europe.

The packages are on sale from Sunday 21 June to 10 July, priced from $869* per person, twin share for four nights departing Auckland.

Travellers who book one of these deals can also go into the draw to win a Sony Handycam by visiting the New Caledonia Tourism website at and filling out a short survey.

“New Caledonia is one of our closest neighbours - just a two and a half hour flight away - but it makes the perfect destination for a winter escape” says Karen Priest, New Caledonia Tourism New Zealand Manager.

“The sunbathed beaches combined with French flair makes it a world away from New Zealand at this time of the year.”

New Caledonia is renowned for its white sand beaches, water sports, local fresh food markets and cuisine.  There is also the unique Kanak culture, the world’s largest and UNESCO Heritage Listed lagoon and European shopping.
