What an amazing trip. We did the overnight tour, with air taxi Vanuatu on a small 6 seater plane. Do not expect to much from the accommodation, although it was adequate, we did have rats as visitors at dinner. Tanna Island has very poor roads, so when they say 4wd they mean 4wd. A very bumpy couple of hours but... More

We were there when the activity level was only 1. So didn’t see splendid fireworks but was safe to stand at the rim of the crater. The weather was good. The big bang and ground shakes still happens with frequent small eruptions, still fascinating. Walking up the volcano(we walked slowly so 1 hour, u don't need to be very fit),... More

What an amazing day. First we saw custom dancing by people of Tanna, which was spectacular. Then we were taken as far up the mountain as the trucks could go ( a pretty rough ride ). Then out to walk up the rest of the way-very steep, to stand on the caldera of this active volcano. White smoke coming out-this... More

I don't know where else you can get so close to an active volcano, it is nice. Be prepare it is a long 4WD journey (2 hours each way) on rough road. It is not cheap but it is a good experience. Definitely go for a twilight tour instead of the day tour as you can see the colour of... More

we did an over night tour. We got there before sunset and got to see the most amazing "fireworks" from the volcano. But to see it after dark is spectacular. We could of stayed all night. The noise and the sights are ones you will not forget in a hurry.

When you go up the volcano in the midnight and sit near her. Listening to her roaring and lava, it is hard to describe the feeling. Excellent!!

For me this is on the same level as "Rafting the Zambezi at Victora Falls" and Seeing the "Mountain Gorillas at Virunga National Park" in the Congo. Truely Bucket list adventure. We stayed at Island Dream Bungalows for 3 nights and went to see the Volcano on 21st and 22nd Feb 2014. You need to stay at least a few... More

Wow, this is mind blowing. I have never seen anything like this. You could spend hours here just in awe. Unfortunately my camera did not capture just how awesome this is natural wonder is. This should be a must regardless of how expensive it is

This truly is a once in a life time experience and very much a must do in your life time. The journey to the volcanic plain is a rough one on terrible roads but in a good 4 x 4 with a good driver its no problem. We stayed at White Grass Resort and organized a private tour directly with... More
