Mt. Yasur

Tanna is famous for its volcano, its wild horses and its custom villages and the cargo cults that have grown there. Day trips are available from Port Vila, but it is wise to stay at least one night in order to appreciate the numerous attractions.Major attraction is Mt. Yasur, known as the world’s most accessible active volcano. A night trip to this mighty volcano is an experience one does not easily forget. It is best to arrive just before nightfall so you can experience the transformation that takes place as darkness settles. The rumbling of the explosions and the vibrations of the ground is truly awesome.

Flights operate twice a day and it is a one-hour flight from Vila to the recently constructed Whitegrass airport.

    Had to come back and check out your photo of Yasur. We just got back from Vanuatu...it wasn't as green at Yasur for us as it looks when you were there...
