Words can't describe the sound and sight of this monster. Or the feeling of her rumble under your feet. The drive from the airport to Yasur was beautiful and gave a insight into island village life and the friendly happy people. Apart from a mix...More

How many people can say they stood at the edge of an active volcano! This was an amazing sight to see. If you are going to Tanna Mt Yasur needs to be on your list of things to do, you will never forget it!

You can only go with a tour. The local tribe control everything very closely. You get right to the rim, and they know which side to stand on based on how the volcano is behaving. So it's probably best all round.
