After a long drive on some rough roads we were greeted at base by tour guides and locals who sang and danced for us. I joined in and it was a great experience. The trip up to the volcano was fine and despite being windy...More

If you always wanted to feel what it like to be on the rim of a active volcano reckon this is as close as you can get, without getting yourself into danger. You can feel the heat, explosion, see the colour glow and sometimes some...More

We knew visiting Mt. Yasur was going to be special besides all the reviews we have read. Being very accesible, it brings crowds so although it is a very special experience, it is not magical. Also, the company running the tours is charging a large...More

A highlight of our trip to Vanuatu. We did the sunset tour organised by our hotel. Our driver stopped at some very scenic spots as well as driving up the ash side of the volcano. Once we got to the volcano we were welcomed by...More

An amazing experience to be so close to an active volcano. A rugged trip to get there but well worth it. Video tip: to capture it actually erupting, point your phone at the point where it erupts and start filming. After 30 seconds stop, quickly...More
