Overview
More
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.

We flew with Air Taxi to Tanna Island, and flew right around Mt Yasur where we got to look right down into the volcano. We then landed and drove across the island which was amazing seeing all the Villages and the lush landscape. Driving across...More

The flight over the volcano, where you can see lava jumping into the air, was one of the highlights - as was standing on the rim and feeling it rumble and explode with rocks shot into the air over our heads! The flight and pilot...More

Thanks for the comprehensive review and feedback. Certainly, seeing Mt Yasur at night is far more spectacular than during the day so we highly recommend the Overnight Tour. Unfortunately there is no way for us to extend the time the tour spends on Tanna as...More

If you visit Vanuatu you should do this tour. It is fantastic to see the volcano from close up. The fly over was great.

Hi, We did an overnight trip but I think that you can do a day trip. However, it would be a long day and the volcano looks much better at night. From the ship to the airport is about 30min. The flight to Tanna is 11/2... More
