Wallis and Futuna, officially the Territory of the Wallis and Futuna Islands, is a French island collectivity in the South Pacific between Tuvalu to the northwest, Fiji to the southwest, Tonga to the southeast, Samoa to the east, and Tokelau to the northeast. Though both French and Polynesian, Wallis and Futuna is distinct from the entity known as French Polynesia.

Its land area is 142.42 km2 (54.99 sq mi) with a population of about 12,000. Mata-Utu is the capital and biggest city. The territory is made up of three main volcanic tropical islands along with a number of tiny islets, and is split into two island groups that lie about 260 km (160 mi) apart, namely the Wallis Islands (Uvea) in the northeast, and the Hoorn Islands (also known as the Futuna Islands) in the southwest, including Futuna Island proper and the mostly uninhabited Alofi Island.

The overwhelming majority (99%) of the people in Wallis and Futuna are Catholics, served by their own Roman Catholic Diocese of Wallis and Futuna. The culture of Wallis and Futuna is Polynesian, and is very similar to the cultures of its neighbouring nations Samoa and Tonga. The Wallisian and Futunan cultures share very similar components in language, dance, cuisine and modes of celebration.

Fishing and agriculture are the traditional practices and most people live in traditional fate houses in an oval shape made of thatch.

WALLIS AND FUTUNA 2017

One short stop during this world trip was on the island of Wallis (from the archipelago Wallis and futuna). This is a french island lost in the middle of the pacific ocean, far far away from France! Small island but still interesting!

Wallis and Futuna road trip | Wonderful views and location while traveling

Wallis and Futuna are located due north of Fiji, where they are occasionally frequented by visitors, regularly abandoned by locals in search of jobs and peppered with a generous offering of French food and champagne. You could call it a slice of France in the Pacific if French Polynesia hadn't taken the title already. It's the second - the forgotten - slice, one of typical Pacific beauty and aquatic pleasures.

The first missionary to Futuna, one Pierre Chanel, was martyred four years into his evangelical run. His work was done though: the first Oceanian nation to martyr a missionary has transformed into a devoutly religious entity where church buildings spring up like palm trees. These beautiful churches provide for one of the highlights of travel to Wallis and Futuna.

Travel Professor - Tourism in Tuvalu?

In 2016, the UNWTO listed Tuvalu as the least visited countries in the World. Many of the leisure tourists only went to check it off their list so they can say they have visited all countries in the World. The Travel Professor found only a few 'attractions' but a country with a rich culture and untouched environment.
I also talk to Noa from the Library and show a fatele, the national dance, being performed at the end of the video.

Wallis-et-Futuna : Journée à Alofi

Alofi est la troisième île de Wallis-et-Futuna. C'est une île (presque) inhabitée : 1 habitant permanent ! C'est surtout le morceau de France le plus éloigné de Paris (16252 km d'après Wikipédia). C'est aussi un paradis... pour les touristes qui n'aiment pas les touristes, pour les randonneurs qui aiment marquer leur propre trace, pour les fans de plages désertes et surtout pour les moustiques. Difficile d'accès (4 avions et 1 bateau pour y accéder), sauvage (pas d'électricité, pas d'eau potable...), hostile (infestée de moustiques, végétation extraordinairement envahissante...). Bref, tout ce que j'aime !

WALLIS, EXPLORING the spectacular 1km wide CRATER of LAKE LALOLALO (Pacific Ocean)

SUBSCRIBE: - Let's view one of the most spectacular crater lakes in the world, lake Lalolalo in the island of Wallis (of the French territory Wallis and Futuna in the Pacific Ocean). Lonely Planet says of it Lake Lalolalo is the most spectacular of the Wallis crater lakes. This eerie lake is an almost perfect circle with sheer rocky cliffs falling 30m down to the dark, 80m deep waters.The lake is also described as circular, with vertical red walls 30 metres high, which make the pea-green water almost inaccessible. The surrounding jungle is inhabited by tropical birds and flying foxes which regularly fly low over the lake. The lake has a population of eels, which many conservationists have been concerned with due to the lake's inaccessibility. Vic Stefanu, vstefanu@yahoo.com

Mata-Utu, capitale de Wallis et Futuna

Mata-Utu, capitale de Wallis et Futuna sur

Capitale du territoire d'outre mer Wallis et Futuna

Mata-Utu... Le nom est curieux, mystérieux. Est ce un pays ? Une île ? Où le placer sur le globe ? Bon nombre de personnes ignorent même son existence. Pourtant Mata-Utu est bien là, à 23000 kilomètres de la France, perdu au cœur du Pacifique Sud, en Polynésie.

Petit bourg tranquille, Mata-Utu est la capitale du territoire français d'Outre Mer, Wallis et Futuna.

Situé à plus de 20 000 km de Paris, Wallis et Futuna est sans nul doute le territoire français le plus éloigné de la métropole. Morceau de France, perdu dans l'immensité du Pacifique Sud, Wallis et Futuna est un archipel de petite dimension mais étendu, puisque 240 km d'océan séparent les deux îles.
