Mt Yasur, on the Southern Vanuatu island of Tanna, is the archipelago’s most iconic landmark. Words can’t adequately describe the thrill and awe of walking to the edge of an active volcano and watching it erupt. It is one of the most spectacular natural events you’re ever likely to witness, especially at night when the molten magma displays are truly awesome. AIR TAXI Vanuatu offers premium Day and Overnight Tours to Tanna.

Amazing experience. Spent over an hour on top of the volcano whilst the sunset. The sound wave was out of this world. At times it made me scream as I had never seen anything like it before. I loved the 4WDing to and from the volcano, we had an awesome driver who made it fun going fast over the ash... More

This is a review for: "MT YASUR OVERNIGHT TOUR FROM PORT VILA – YASUR VOLCANO TOUR" In a word, overall: Epic. Read on for details. You will assemble at the Port Vila airport for departure to Tanna Island via a small plane. Expect some disorganization at Port Vila. Also, and we were not told: you will need to pay in... More

My wife and I had a great day visiting Tanna Isand and Mt Yasur volcano with Air Taxi Tours. The flight down was much smoother that the roads on Tanna. Having said that if you want a bit more excitment on your trip be sure to ride in the back of the 4WD utes to Mt Yasur but be prepared... More

We flew on the volcano and epi island tour while visiting Vanuatu with Royal Caribbean cruise lines. Yes, it is possible to do this while on a cruise. It was the most wonderful day of our lives. Simon met us as we left the cruise ship which was very helpful since the area was quite congested and we might never... More

Great trip to a live volcano. Flew in safety. 4WD to the volcano and given plenty of time to look about - never felt rushed.

Brought to tears are the only words I can say about our trip to see the volcanoes. My family and I did the Volcanic Epi island tour and I would recommend it for everyone. The scenery wad breathtaking and it was amazing when our pilot Phil landed the plane on the beach. From there we ate an astounding breakfast and... More

The flight over to Tanna was smoother than I expected, but the weather wasn't very good so we werent able to fly over the volcano. The Evergreen Resort is fairly basic, but the food served in the evening was lovely. The trip to the Volcano is around 2 hours through bumpy terrain, so don't expect a smooth ride. It rained...

Perfectly comfortable and a good flight. At Tanna we were greated at the resort with a cold drink before boarding... More

Now, I truly dislike the overuse of the word 'awesome' but it really is the best description of a visit to Mount Yasur. The noise, smell and rumbles from the volcano are something you really need to experience to have any idea what I'm talking about but it went well beyond my expectations and definitely needs to be added to...

You chose a good word - the volcano is awesome in the truest sense of the word. It feels ancient and primal to stand on the edge of an erupting volcano and something you will never forget. Thanks for choosing Air Taxi to fly with to Tanna, we are happy to be part of your awesome experience. :) More

Pricy trip but well worth it! If you see the volcano go for the overnight. Much more exciting than in daylight as the red reflections lighten the sky.
