Mount Yasur was one of the most wonderful things I've ever done. We organised our tour through the White Grass Ocean Resort and it was smooth from start to finish. Watching the volcano shoot up lava, listen to it crashing and banging, and to see...More

We chose to do a day trip from Port Vila to Tanna Island to see Mt Yasur and then a fly over the volcano at twilight. The day was absolutely fantastic, the volcano was amazing. To stand on the edge of an erupting volcano was...More

My second trip to the volcano wasn't disappointing - more organised, and the main event was quite good - like fireworks!

It's as thrilling and awe inspiring as everyone else has said. The title of my review gives the tips that were so helpful to us. We had surgical masks to wear (but didn't end up feeling like we needed them) and saw others wearing scarves...More

We went on our own to Tanna. We flew with Air Vanuatu and stayed for a night at the Volcano Island Paradise Bungalow. It was an awesome experience overall and a highlight for us. Nevertheless, it left a bitter taste. Compared to the rest of...More

Once in a lifetime experience to see a active volcano from up close! The entry fee is around 9750 vatu ($100) but it is totally worth it. Plan your visit in the evening. The views after sunset are stunning.

A must-do on Tanna. The trip took about 1.5 hours to get there. The second part of the trip was in an open ute - 6 of us in the open in the back - and it was really bouncy. A wonder noone fell out...More

The volcano is amazing. It truly is. Sadly you have to use the one company that has cornered the market to see this awe inspiring sight. Tanna Volcano Safari Tours start you off with a strangely uninterested guide directing you to pick up a sign...More

This was our main purpose for visiting Tanna Island and was definitely the highlight of our trip. The cost to go up the volcano is steep (9,750 vatu each = NZ$128) but it was well worth it for us. You have to go up with...More

I think you could manage it, and the guides are very helpful. I am 67 and I did it, but I am quite fit. There is a truck ride up to quite near the view point, then there is a bit of a climb, but you can take it slowly. After... More
