This place is just magical, walking up an active volcano and meeting the locals (spending a day with a native tribe) was an amazing experience and one I will never forget.

At the end of a 4wd road you ll be able to climb 10mn at the top of mount yasur. Sit down and enjoy the incredible sound of the volcanoe and the light of lava exploding Unmissible.

Do this. It's as good as you are thinking. The 4wd trip from our resort at Ocean Grass took 2 hours each way and is ROUGH but it is certainly part of the experience. The volcano grumbles and "breaths" the whole time. When it explodes...More

An amazing experience to watch the explosions of the volcano from the volcano rim. Can only be done when the activity level is 3 or less

Lifechanging experience, looking into the heart of Mother Earth. Went 5 times up the Mountain, every time was different. Saw amazing volcanic landscapes before but Mount Yasur is outstanding.

We are going to Mt Yasur in a couple of days with my son and his wife and two small children. My son is very worried about the shooting lava coming up and landing near to the kids and burning them. Is that a real risk?

It's possible but not likely at all. The wind is taking the lava in a certain direction. It is an amazing experience and one that is worth the risk.
Hi , I'm coming to hopefully see the amazing volcanos next March . Just wondering what the cost will be in Australian dollars to do a tour . Thankyou

hi, went earlier in the year and didn't need a mask. it was windy the day i went and at one stage i was getting a lot of dirt (or grit) blown in my face. the guides just moved us to another place that wasn't downwind.
