Mt Yasur, on the Southern Vanuatu island of Tanna, is the archipelago’s most iconic landmark. Words can’t adequately describe the thrill and awe of walking to the edge of an active volcano and watching it erupt. It is one of the most spectacular natural events you’re ever likely to witness, especially at night when the molten magma displays are truly awesome. AIR TAXI Vanuatu offers premium Day and Overnight Tours to Tanna.

We didn't get the weather we wished for for our scenic flight around the volcano, how ever we had an awesome time on Tanna island very relaxing. Our pilot adam was such a lad, providing us with good info and safe landings. Definitely a must when in Vanuatu

As a first-time Volcano tourer, this experience blew me away. The local people were very helpful and communicative and the service provided by Air Taxi and the local lodging was excellent. Although Yasur was at a Level 2? volcano rating, the ash and the sulphur did not stop me from enjoying the sights and this wonderful experience. Special mention to... More

We booked a day trip to Tanna Island to experience Mt Yasur both by air and by foot. We were to fly over the volcano and then land and do an over land trip to experience the island life and get up close Mt Yasur. Unfortunately the weather turned bad just as we were to fly over the mountain and... More

Hi Jan. Thank you for your review and feedback. It was unfortunate the weather turned as it did just as you reached Tanna Island. All indications, including reports from Tanna and the Mt Yasur Volcano webcam, showed the weather to be fine at the time of your departure from Port Vila. The forecast also indicated nothing inclement. Weather does however... More

We pre-booked our overnight trip to Mt. Yasur for Christmas Day prior to arriving in Vanuatu as the highlight of our trip. It is worth stating from the outset that this isn't a cheap day excursion and you have to be invested to get the most out of the day. Our trip was thrown into doubt from the start by... More

We had a good trip with Air Taxi Vanuatu. We were getting off a ship and had a little trouble coordinating where to pick us up, but it worked out in the end - Meliana in the front office is good at returning emails! ATV stored our excess bags for us. My only complaint, really, was the long wait at... More

Thanks for your feedback Adelle, and apologies for any lack of communication before setting off from Port Vila. We were indeed continually checking the weather before deciding to proceed with tour, as we know how much our customers want to see the volcano. We always need to put safety first, which is why we delayed the take off. We are... More

This is the sort of visit/trip that you see on Planet Earth, Discovery channel or National Geographic that you've always wanted to do and wondered how they got there; something truly off the beaten path.

Had a fantastic trip to Tanna, Adam our pilot from Air Taxi was great. We were very surprised to see such a young lad with such experience and enthusiasm for his job. Don't miss this trip of a life time. Staying at Ever Green Resort, lovely place, lovely people, lovely food. Kevin and Kerry Fox

I've always wanted to visit an active volcano and this trip provided me with this opportunity. Our pick up from our resort was on time and the check in for the flight was smooth. We met our pilot and walked out to the Tarmac. I will admit I was a bit surprised at the size of the plane ( a... More

Most of the reviewers here are giving Air Taxi great reviews because they enjoyed Mt. Yasur. Air Taxi does do flyovers of the volcano but they do not take people to the volcano. Another company does that and Air Taxi is receiving all their credit. I first booked a day-trip with Air Taxi which was pretty easy to do. However,... More

Thanks for taking the time to review your Air Taxi Tour to Mt Yasur Volcano. Air Taxi most certainly does take people to the volcano. We do this by flying customers to Tanna and making arrangements for every other aspect of the tour. We do not run the ground based transport on Tanna as this would be taking business from... More
