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

Amazing to be on the rim of an active volcano. We visited in the afternoon and still there when it got dark. So you could really see the lava.

If no one tells you, like no one told us! Then it is a good idea to bring goggles for the ashes and a scarf for the smoke and a torchlight/ headlight for the walk back. And a raincoat, they can provide you one, but...More

So glad we did this, the drive to the volcano isn't that bad, ok it is bumpy but they drive slowly, so its not like you get thrown around. It is a steep climb up & the railing is wobbly, but worth it. I did...More

If Mt. Yasur is on your bucket list, allow a few days in Tanna (highly recommended) as the tour can be cancelled if visibility is poor. On arrival at the visitor centre we were split up into groups based on nationality. Each group was given...More

Waaaaaoooo! Mount Yasur climbing is just spectacular! Be ready to see, to hear, to smell and to feel everything new and that you have never tasted before. The view is breathtaking, the heart of the volcano is like a thunderstorm and you feel the power...More

Adventure experience starting from the drive there. Definately take a jacket plus a large hanky or scarf for ash/sulphur smell protection if windy. Also a torch for the trip back to the vehicles in the dark.

Sorry Ruth, I only just picked up your message. I think you could give it a go to the first part, where you still get a good view. The guides are strong and will help you, but it is quite steep, so you need to go slowly. I... More
