Mount Yasur, Tanna Island

(4.8/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan to visit Mount Yasur and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Tanna Island attractions using our Tanna Island trip generator.

  • It is of course a fascinating not to be missed at any price discovery: the environment of the volcano, the rise, smoke, odors, eruptions, the noise! It remains a shame losing a bit of time in silly anecdotal stuff for about an hour. It seems important to point out that entry rates still come to increase on 1 April. There, it starts to be very expensive and this will prevent some to do this magic discovery!
