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.

We flew to Tanna to see the volcano. We flew over the volcano and the pilot did two laps to ensure both sides got a perfect view. The volcano then itself was phenomenal by night. Finally we went back to the overnight accomodation and were...More
