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.

Everything about this tour was fantastic. We had a pleasant flight to Tanna Island then a relaxing and very good lunch at the picturesque White Grass Resort. We saw humpback whales breaching while we were eating. The 1 ½ hour drive to Yasur Volcano was fine: the roads were unsealed but quite smooth and well-maintained. It was really interesting seeing...

Absolutely amazing. I will remember visiting Mt. Yasur for the rest of my life. It was perfect weather with a glorious sunset and we could see the lava bubbling away in the volcano opening. The sounds of the volcano are booming, something I will not forget in a hurry. Once the sun has set you see the volcano and its... More

Let me start by saying that the volcano itself is an amazing experience. The volcano itself would deserve 5 stars. It's the overall experience that makes it only 2 stars for me. Be prepared to pay a lot of money. The entrance price has doubled since April. Tourists now pay 7500 vatu to see the volcano. That's not all. The... More

We booked our trip to the Mt Yasur volcano through the White Grass Ocean Resort where we were staying. This was the main reason for our trip to Vanuatu this time and has been on our bucket-list for years. It's something that is not to be missed, especially now before the OHS people & ambulance-chasing lawyers and frightened politicians close... More

We went there by ourself. At the local airport we haven’t booked any transport as there is buses going to the entrance of the volcano for 500vat /pers Be careful, some driver ask 2500vat /pers one way… to note that all locals are doing “taxi driver” and the bus is the same 4x4 pickup used for the highest price. Regarding... More
