Dream landscapes in virtual reality
What better way to discover this Pacific archipelago (other than in living technicolor) than a virtual reality experience? The "New Caledonia VR" application was specially created to do just that. The app provides fifteen films in 360°: you can dive into the different universes of the region, lift the veil on its emblematic sites and meet local guides. And, the more you advance in the app, the more content you will unlock. Free and easy to use, you can explore it with or without a VR helmet.
Watch sea turtles laying eggs as if you were there
Follow in the footsteps of WWF scientists! Thanks to this 360° immersion, you can follow the World Wildlife Fund team on Gi islet, south of the lagoon, during the sea turtles egg laying season. You can even be a part of the nesting of a loggerhead turtle! Experiment with the functionality of the 360° immersion using the cursor: move the point of view and observe the environment around you! It's a magical part of the circle of life on New Caledonia.
Head for the capital Noumea
Experience a busy day in the shoes of a visitor in Nouméa! From Anse-Vata beach to the stalls of the Moselle market, from the Maître islet to the White coast, finish the day on a high note with a microlight flight over the coral reef (the largest in the world) and the Amédée lighthouse. Fly above the surrounding landscape of New Caledonia in 360° thanks to the cursor. Bon voyage!
