Mother Nature in her fury- mount Yasur was amazing. The journey to the volcano is a rough one, as Tanna Island has no sealed roads, all are dirt and mud. Its a bumpy ride and if you get car sick, bring some medication to help you as it is very bumpy. 4WD accessible only. The drive is around 1.5hrs from... More

I've never felt so apart of the world. Staring into the black and red molten abyss, watching it explode in all its glory. What an experience, definitely worth a visit though HIGHLY recommend you go at NIGHT. it is more active after 8pm.

Although only a level 1 when we visited it was still a powerful and moving experience. We did the trip through White Grass Ocean Resort and our driver, Phillip, and guide, Robert, were both excellent.

The noise is awesome and the views from above and below are both equally with it. Our only disappointment was it wasn't firing when we flew over.

The pilot was funny and entertaining and calmed a few nervous people well. Tanna lodge was great and they served us well, had a... More

We did an Air Taxi Vanuatu Tanna overnight tour which included going up Mt Yasur. Mt Yasur is just awesome! There are not enough superlatives to describe it! You drive along incredibly bumpy roads to get there and then park 5 minutes walk from the rim of an active volcano! It is a steep walk up a concreted path with... More

A really must do tour, just awesome. The roads are terrible but the drivers amazing! Go at a time when you can see it at it's best, early evening.

Since reading about this side trip, I knew I'd love it, being an avid photographer and volcanoes have always interested me. The overnight trip was better than I could have imagined. My husband and I flew with Air Taxi (Duncan, you crazy South African cowboy :)) and stayed overnight at Evergreen Resort. I seriously cannot fault service from any one.... More
