We recommend going in the evening for sunset. Weather was perfect the evening we went and it all looked just spectacular. An awesome experience not to be missed!

Most amazing experience of my life being at the rim of the crater looking down into the mouth of a live volcano! Must be seen at dusk so the firework display comes even more alive into the evening.

Wow, what a fantastic tour, absolutely awesome to see the power of Mother Nature so close! The main purpose of us visiting Tanna Island was to see the volcano, Mt Yasur - something that had been on my husband's bucket list for some years. The drive from our hotel took 1½ hours to the Welcome village. We made two stops... More

Standing next to a active volcano was exhilarating. An absolute must see. Do not go to Tanna without experiencing this!!

Everything was really well organised and on time. The flight with Air Taxi was so much fun, Sam was an awesome pilot and super friendly, really recommend him. Made our group feel very safe in such a small plane! Great trip to the volcano, not to be missed when in Vanuatu. Never heard anything so powerful as that volcano rumble!... More

OMG!!! This is surely a bucket list must-do for anyone with a slight sense of adventure and interest in nature. Nowhere else in the world can you get so up close and person to a very active, molten lava erupting volcano. The trip is very safely organised and supervised by the local village who live daily in the shadow of... More

Our family of four (2A and 2C (8 and 11)) travelled to the Volcano on a day where it was rated 2 out of 4 (no tours if 3 or 4). Booked our tour via Whitegrass Resort which was pricey but we did expect this as it's the main reason we went to Tanna. After a very bumpy 1.5 hour... More

You have to visit at 4 pm AND at 4 am when there are not so many people (we were only 7 compared to the 50+ in the evening). It is the experience of a lifetime. You can sit at the edge of the volcano and admire the amazing fireworks show Yasur is giving every couple of minutes! Stay next... More

Experience of a life time! The visuals and sound is fantastic. Just be prepared for cold weather and rain. Dress warm, a rain coat is handy. Good walking shoes too. Getting there is very interesting too. Speak to the guides, they're happy to tell you all about it.
