^Yasur Volcano & Tanna Highland Safari

Our tour gives our guests the opportunity to have a true experience of what Tanna beholds as you travel by 4 wheel drive to the far side of Tanna through the mountain region known as ‘Middle Bush’; passing by wild horses, coffee plantations and remote villages before crossing Mt. Loanialu at 522m, where you will see glimpses of the distant volcano, Tanna’s East coast, black sand surf beaches and Sulphur Bay. Trace your way across the moon like landscape of the SIWI ash plains to the Volcano entrance, where you will be greeted with Custom dancing and a safety briefing. Then take the 4WD drive track to the Volcano car park, and a short 10 min walk will take you to the rim of the crater where you will be able to experience the awesome majesty of the mighty Mount Yasur Volcano. A Multi-lingual guide will accompany you for informative and safety purposes. This tour departs daily between 2pm and 3pm (depending on the season), to ensure that you arrive at the volcano to experience the sun setting and the change in colour, as the molten lava lights up the sky at night.
