We did this tour through White Grass Resort. It takes about 1.5-2 hours each way along the dirt bumpy road. Along the way you will stop at a local village where the local choir group will sing and present everyone with a bunch of flowers. You will also stop on a hill for photo opportunities with the volcano in the... More

I visited the mountain twice on 2 consecutive nights. The first night it was foggy and obscure with light rain. It still was a surreal experience despite being able to see very little. I decided to go again the next night on the off-chance the conditions would clear. And so it did. We climbed the opposite side of the crater,... More

No trip to Vanuatu is complete without visiting the summit of Mt Yasur. An active volcano, the ground literally trembles below your feet. The trip is generally long and rough, packed into the back of a 4WD so beware if you have back problems. However for the able bodied, the trip is totally worth it.

A must to do at dusk, snow boarding is also a must. Take water, closed shoes, snack bar & camera. Also it can be cool on the way home, take a light cover.

Nowhere else in the world have I been THIS close to an active volcano! Amazing sights, sounds, smells. Wonderfully exciting, even a bit frightening as one approaches and then watches in awe at the power of the earth

A bit of a hike, but if our 86 year old grandfather can do it - you can. A once in a lifetime experience, unlike anything you would have done elsewhere. A bit of a rough drive but it adds to the wild experience.

It was an amazing experience and we are glad we decided to do this. Photos and videos cannot do justice to what you can see and experience first hand.

This is a MUST. Most accessible live Volcano in the world. Truly amazing and breath taking. Make sure you go in the evening you get better pics. :-)
