Mt Yasur is deservingly the number 1 reason to visit Tanna and the afternoon/evening trip did not disappoint. Definitely heed the advice to wear long trousers/pants,jacket and runners to make yourself comfortable when on the exposed peaks around the top of the volcano.

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
