“Mother Nature having fun”
Reviewed 29 March 2012

Brilliant. To drive to within 100 metres of the edge, walk up a few steps, then watch Yasur's amazing fireworks is such a special experience.

“This attraction should be on everyone's bucket list!”
Reviewed 25 March 2012

Visitng Mt Yasur has been a long time wish and it did not disappoint. The volcano was more active than anticipated but at no time were we in danger. Being able to get up close and personal to this natural wonder was a treat. Our guide was very informative and he obviously has a passion for the mountain. If you are thinking about seeing this attraction - go!

“Nature at it's most amazing”
Reviewed 15 March 2012

Even before we got to the volcano the sound of the pure power was amazing from miles away. Then in the car park the sounds was also with the sight of rocks thrown into the air meters above the rim.
The sight and even the smell is very impressive. Then you see the size of what your looking at , it's massive!. Then as it get's darker the show gets better, and better!
Just wish I could have stayed all night.

“Absolutely worth visiting Vanuatu for this”
Reviewed 9 March 2012

It was as good as the brochure I was there in quiet season so it was remote and very few visitors. The sunset tour is magic. If I had food and wine I could have stayed all night yes it is remote yes it is a long drive but nature in full power and beauty is worth it the sight, the smell the sonic boom type noise from the eruptions magic!

“Amazing”
Reviewed 7 March 2012

Perfection! Don't go to Tanna and not do this. My one recommendation would be to book on a tour that gets there later and leaves later as the display after dark is by far the best.
