Overview

Mt Yasur, on the Southern Vanuatu island of Tanna, is the archipelago’s most iconic landmark. Words can’t adequately describe the thrill and awe of walking to the edge of an active volcano and watching it erupt. It is one of the most spectacular natural events you’re ever likely to witness, especially at night when the molten magma displays are truly awesome. AIR TAXI Vanuatu offers premium Day and Overnight Tours to Tanna.

This is a must for everyone who visits Vanuatu! The overnight option is recommended as it is not until its dark that the volcano presents its best show. If you are contemplating the trip but may be concerned about having to climb a mountain side,...More

Thank you very much for your review Anthony. I will pass on the feedback (to the volcano tour operators) regarding the awkward nationality grouping at the base of the volcano. Happy you had a great experience.

Our flight to the volcano was initially delayed, and they were kind enough to buy us lunch at the cafe at the airport. Then, when I left my cellphone at the resort on the island, they made arrangements to have it picked up and returned...More

Apologies for the late departure, which I believe was a delay getting fuel. When it gets busy at Port Vila's modest airport, ground services can be put under pressure. Happy to hear you enjoyed the tour all the same. Thanks for the review.

Reviewed 12 October 2017

Professional pilots. Well-organised -with an unbelievable flight around Tanna volcano. Then on the ground and a drive to the volcano -amazing sights along the way and an unbelievably close encounter with Mount Yasur-one of natures great spectacles. Money well spent for an unforgettable experience.

Thanks for reviewing. When the weather is good, the scenic flight over the volcano is indeed a fantastic intro to the adventure. Glad you enjoyed the tour.
