Tanna – Mt Yasur Volcano Overnight Tour

Tanna – Mt Yasur Volcano Overnight Tour
Vanuatu Volcano Overnight Tour from Port Vila to Tanna Island’s Mt Yasur Volcano

It is generally agreed that Mt Yasur Volcano is best viewed at night; the explosive molten magma displays are truly awesome. Our Tanna Overnight Tour from Port Vila allows you to view the volcano both during the daytime and after dark, when the natural fireworks show is at its most spectacular.

After departure from Port Vila, we set course direct to Mt Yasur Volcano, on the south eastern side of Tanna Island. This track takes you directly over exotic Erromango Island, which is about half way to Tanna. Once we reach the north coast of Tanna we fly you down the rarely visited east coast, towards Mt Yasur Volcano. After a few minutes, the volcano ash plain comes into view, then Mt Yasur Volcano itself. You are then treated to an aerial view right down into its fiery heart. Peering down into an active volcano is sure to be one of the most incredible sights you will ever witness from the air. We then swoop low over remote villages on approach to Tanna Airport.

After landing on Tanna, you’ll be met by your friendly driver and together head off across Tanna Island on an extraordinary adventure safari to Mt Yasur Volcano. Upon reaching the volcano, your experienced guide will walk with you to the crater’s edge, for a sunset to remember and one of the most breath-taking natural shows you’re ever likely to witness!
