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.

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.

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.

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.
