Mt Yasur & Tanna Adventure Tours

WOW! WOW! & WOW! Believe it or not Yasur is even more amazing than the videos you see on YouTube!

My husband is a Geologist - so Yasur was a MUST when we were planning our trip to Vanuatu. It truly is an incredible experience! We had the perfect day. We stayed with Isso & Rachel of www.tanna-adventures.com Our Big Day Out included lunch at Port Resolution & a visit to the Hot Springs which were great experiences in themselves. However, Yasur is something else!

We spent some time on the northern side exploring the ring plane of ash before we headed up to the rim late afternoon (before the crowds) so we could make the most of our time there. The direction of the wind influences where & when you can explore certain areas. When we first approached the rim of the volcano and saw the clouds of volcanic ash & smoke we were in AWE! It was a WOW moment every time there was a boom from within followed by clouds of ash & molten lava. As night fell and we moved around the rim, the WOW factor intensified!

Isso encouraged us to stay as long as we wanted. Having been one of the first to arrive - we were one of last to leave. Definitely recommend Tanna Adventures to ensure you make the most of your visit to once in a lifetime experience! They also offer accommodation and other tours to ensure you get the true sense of Tanna. www.tanna-adventures.com

There is something about being so close to an active volcano which hits at a very deep level. It is spine tingling... like swimming with dolphins or stroking a humpback whale. Takes us back to our roots... or something :) Whatever it is, it is something that you will never forget.

We stayed with Isso and Rachel for 3 days and had a stunning truly 'local' experience. Roy(with the widest smile in Tanna) was our guide on a huge walk in the forest and beach and we all had a memorable experience. Mount Yasur did not let us down with massive multi venting eruptions every few minutes, all set against a tropical ocean sunset backdrop. I would recommend it to everyone. You need to be prepared for rustic accommodation, but so many smiles and happy villages to pass through, delightful.
