Yasur volcano tours

We are going to Vila in June and have been recommended to visit Tanna for a night. I have read it is better to visit it at sunset.

Would it be better to do a sunset trek to the volcano, or do a fly over at sunset?

I'd be grateful if anyone can recommend a good tour which might incorporate one or both of the above, plus obviously a night of accomodation and transfers with Vila.

The volcano has been active everyday for over 200 years :-)

How active it will be when you are here is anyone's guess as it changes everyday.

Mt Yasur erupts every few minutes and has done for years. The likelihood of it running out of steam before October is extremely slim.

This is great thanks so much for your help! It's an expensive flight and I wanted to be sure our chances of seeing activity was high and it sounds like it is!

Jacsnunn, maybe you could do some research volcanos before you go so you can learn about what you are seeing and enhance your experience.

Jacsnunn, definitely do some more research as P&L said. A great resource is youtube, and if you search Mt Yasur there are many videos there to give you a taste of what you might see. Another place to look is http://www.geohazards.gov.vu/ where you can see it is Category 2 at the moment, which is a great level to visit. You can stand right at the rim and watch the show.
