Once in a lifetime experience

Most definitely one of the best experiences we have ever had. To be able to be that close to an active volcano was surreal. A real highlight of our holiday

The experience of standing on an active volcano is surreal. Photos don't capture that smell. Or being covered in ash. Still. I'm more concerned that the local tour guide company does not provide any PPE to its staff who go in there three times a day almost everyday. And the staff have been requesting a mere mask for months without... More

I've being to many volcano's around the world but Yasur volcano was the most exiting. We had transfer with the local guides all the way to the top. We walked not longer then 5 min to the crater of Yasur. The eruptions were ones a minute with very load bang. Lava and rocks are flying up to 100m. We were... More

This trip to the Volcano should be on everybody's bucket list. Well worth the hour flight from Port Vila and the hour and a half drive to get there. Absolutely amazing and worth the $ 1000 AUD for two people cost. If you are going to Vanuatu you should definitely book this trip, you will not regret it.

We were planning a trip to Vanuatu and everything we read said that you have to go to Tanna and see Mt Yasur. It seemed that the only way to do it was to stay in expensive resorts or do a scenic flight which we couldn't afford on our budget holiday. But a lot of researching later we found Yasur... More

As I said in my "Visitor's Review" "Nature's fireworks are the best". Three spectacular sites from which to view the volcano's activity. The last at the higher level is the best.

An amazing up close experience with Mother Nature at her most powerful and beautiful. Worth traveling a long way to see. The tour operator did a great job leading us to a safe spot and making sure we didn't wander into danger. They also had a nice traditional dance before we started the tour. One small critique, the master of... More

You get to stand on the rim of an active volcano, watching red-hot rock thrown high into the air with each explosion. What more could you possibly want from this experience?!??
