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. :-)

This trip left us totally speechless! Thrilling, exciting, awe-inspiring, and possibly one of the most frightening things I've ever experienced! We stayed at Tanna Lodge (damaged by Cyclone Pam, but up and running) and they drove us to Mt Yasur in one of their bright yellow (unmissable) 4WDs. We travelled with the kids (11,10 & 2) and loved every minute... More

This was without a doubt one of the most incredible experiences of my life. Watching lava spew from the steaming growling cauldron was simply astounding.

an amazing night out to view an active volcano!!! the best time is during the evening because you can actually see the explosion!!! You need to get up there to understand the beauty of volcanoes and tectonic plates and movement!!! you will need a hat to protect your hair from volcanic ash plus watch out for molten rocks if you...

One of the most incredible things I have ever seen, the volcano is beyond words, as beautiful as terrifying, a once in a lifetime experience!

This should be on everyone's bucket list. Exhilarating experience you will understand once you visit. The first explosion after the initial ascent is definately the scariest part. You can watch https://vimeo.com/123397287 to see for yourself what it looked like in 2014. It's all fairly safe if you use common sense.

Wow, wow, wow. This is simply amazing. Our journey started at White Grass Ocean Resort with our driver Phillip. The road must be challenging for any 4WD driver especially in pitch-black on our return journey but Phillip looked after us well. We saw wild horses on the White Grass plains as we headed towards our ultimate destination of Mt Yasur,... More

Wow, if ever in Vanuatu, you must do this, it is a great day trip. Starting with the flight, to the bumpy 4 wheel drive to get there and what you see along the way, to the climb up, and to what you see, hear, smell and experience at the top looking down is simply amazing!!
