An excellent experience. For language and safety reasons we were all sorted into nationalities, before driving across the ash plains, to the base of the volcano. On our night (Saturday 9th July) there were a LOT of very happy, chatty Aussies, it was great fun. Whilst feeling the hot intermittent blasts, we learnt that many tourists were actually aid workers,... More

One of the most amazing experiences ever...I can't believe you can get this close to a volcano anywhere else...

If you do one thing on Tanna Island, you must go to the Volcano and walk up to the lookout. Unbelievable experience to be able to stand on the edge of an active volcano without all the barriers we would have in the western world

Yeh, OK call me a Brat but I wanted more. Yep standing on the rim of an active volcano was not quite enough. I was a bit underwhelmed, it was smokey and we couldn't see what the brochure showed. We saw lava explosions, we felt the very earth move under our feet but I would have liked to be permitted... More

A trip to The Grandfather (as locals call her) is a bucket list item. Where else can you sit on the edge of an active volcano after walking up only metres (steep ascent mind you) from the car park? The 3-4 hour return car trip to Mt Yasur (from Whitegrass) is an adventure in itself. Two village visits on the... More

It is kind of expensive cause to go there you have to pay approximately 50000vt and the entrance to the volcano is 75000vt. It includes a dance and food and drinks after the tour. The tour is cool u can go almost to the crater and see the lava. I totally recommend it!

No matter how many times I read that I knew better and it was very windy and got real cold at the top. Then the rain hit. The volcano was amazing I was there 20 years ago and it has changed so much. The cost was 7500vt $90 per person for entrance into the volcano. They do a welcome dance... More
