Mount Yasur, Tanna Island

Volcano Nature / Park
Marvel at the awe-inspiring beauty of Mount Yasur, an active volcano on Tanna Island that has been erupting continuously for 800 years. Mild eruptions still occur several times an hour. Despite its activity, visitors can approach this attraction safely according to strict government guidelines. Consider visiting late in the day so you can view the eruptions during both daylight and nighttime. Access involves a bumpy ride on rough roads and a short hike to the viewing point. When you go, keep in mind Captain James Cook himself was once drawn to the island by the volcano's glowing light and tried to climb the attraction before villagers stopped him, saying the volcano was sacred.

  • It is a unique experience. There are two companies to upload. One costs about $ 100 and another $ 50. The difference is basically go up to almost the top drive. We got to walk with the less expensive company. They are 40 min of ascension without any complication. The cheapest company is located next to the enclosure of the other. It's a simple table with a Chair outdoors. Very austere "office" but the extravaganza is equally. It is advisable to wear something warm for when is at the top, a front and the cameras well charged batteries. Nature puts everything else. Totally recommended.
