The flight from Port Vila to Tanna Volcano takes you high over the west coast of Erromango Island. A short time later you will reach the north coast of Tanna Island. The flight path towards Mt Yasur Volcano takes you low over remote villages and dense rainforest. Before long, the moonlike landscape of the volcano’s ash plain comes into view, and then Mt Yasur Volcano itself. It is a breath taking sight and certainly one of the most spectacular you will ever see from the air. The aircraft will circle the volcano for about 10 minutes, so there is a good chance you will see one of Mt Yasur’s famous lava bomb explosions. Passengers on both sides of the aircraft will get ample time to view the volcano. With our aircraft, the wings are on top and everyone has a window seat, allowing unobstructed viewing and spectacular photo opportunities.

Route Map

After leaving the volcano, your pilot will fly you past the John Frum Cargo Cult Village and Port Resolution, where Captain Cook first dropped anchor at Tanna Island, after seeing the glow of Mt Yasur Volcano. A few minutes later you will fly overhead the beautiful islet of Aniwa, Vanuatu’s only coral atoll, with a population of only 350 people. The northern third of Aniwa Island consists almost entirely of a white beach fringed lagoon. It is a stunning little island from the air.
