Our trip included an exhilerating journey across the volanic plains and past the red lava rocks.the last climb is quite steep but short. Tye lava display incredible. But this not a disney ride , there are no safety barriers . Molten red lava does fly up and out towards and over the head of visiting tourists. People do get burnt.

I have traveled a lot and have been to several volcanoes, recently in Kona but I have to admit Mt. Yasur was one of my favorite experiences. The drive out is jarring with poor roads but it is worth the trip. January is a good time to go as the eruptions are more frequent. You walk right up to the... More

Standing on the crater rim of an active volcano watching mother nature's fireworks is an experience I will never, ever forget. Conditions were great when I was there - regular lava spurts, some ash clouds. It was hard turning my back on it and starting the descent back to the SUV that would take me back to my lodge.

Don't fly charter. Organise it yourself with Air Vanuatu flights. Don't stay Evergreen unless you don't want to eat or sleep properly. Enjoy, what an amazing experience!

Was a great trip, and the volcano is spectacular although our visit was marred a little by fog & low clouds. The journey from the airport is on diabolical roads (roads is a loose description of the potholed tracks) but the end justifies the means!

The whole experience is incredible. Medium fitness is an advantage and be prepared for a rough ride to and from the volcano.

Firstly, sitting on the edge of a very active volcano is an amazing experience not to be missed! So thankful my friend said I must go, especially as I was going to be in Vanuatu. But my experience with Air Taxi, who I booked through was less than enjoyable. When I arrived and checked in for my flight from Port... More

Mount Yasur exceeded expectations! Very spectacular after dark. Just watch out for flying red-hot lava. ( Safety instructions "step out of the way if you see one coming your way")

What a great day. We flew to Tanna with Unity Airlines and our pilot Chris. We got on our little 8 seater plane in Port Vila and had a very enjoyable 45 min flight to Tanna, we then hopped in the back of a ute for the short drive to Evergreen resort for a very nice lunch. The drive to... More
