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.

Really enjoyable trip. The package seemed initially expensive, but when the components were sourced separately, it’s actually good value. Would have given 5 stars, but for two little points. We got stuck in the two back seats on the flight over, and they’re quite uncomfortable...More

Thank you very much for your "strange" but delightful review. Sincere apologies for the issues you faced. Mechanical issues are simply an unavoidable reality of operations (in this case the electric motor which drives the aircraft's flaps was found to be unservicable). Thorough pre-flight checks...More

Thanks for the review. We do recommend the Overnight Tour for the best experience, however, whether its day or night, you are still walking to the edge of an active volcano and watching it erupt!
