Tanna’s most famous attraction, Mt Yasur, is the world’s most accessible active volcano. Over the centuries, ash rain from Yasur has built massive black dunes, creating a moonscape. You can climb to the crater rim to enjoy a magnificent fireworks display. Night-time viewing is best.
There’s a safari tour you can book. It takes you through the Middle Bush area, past the wild horses on the White Grass plains, coffee plantations, and many highland villages before reaching Mt Loanialu at 552 metres. Across the ash plain moonscape Isiwi area, finishing at the foot of Mt Yasur. A further 10-15 minutes’ walk will place you at the crater’s edge (dependent on volcano activity at the time), where you can experience the awesome power of nature as night falls. A guide accompanies you for informative and safety purposes.
A WOW experience. You are on the edge of this great earth ‘beast’ watching molten lava violently bubbling and spitting out into the night sky. A sensory feast not only for the eyes but your entire body as sounds and vibrations of the ground rumbling and the volcano erupting engulf you. It may leave some terrified. Most adventure seekers, however, are addicted to the awe.
An unexpected bonus is your very own private ash boarding lesson. After climbing the volcano, you can scoot your way down again on snowboards (ash boards?). After, be treated to a private tour of one of Tanna’s famous local waterfalls.
