Volcano Scenic Flight & Epi Island Eco Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    At 0730 in the morning you will be collected from your resort and transferred to the airport. The scenic flight takes you over breathtakingly beautiful reefs and islets before reaching the first volcano. Lopevi Volcano is a classically conical shaped island rising dramatically out of the ocean to over 4,000 feet. A little further north from Lopevi, Ambrym Island’s volcanoes are regularly included in the list of earth’s most active volcanoes. They have been in a continuous state of eruption for over 200 years. The vast moon-scape of Ambrym’s constantly smoking caldera is best viewed from the air. If the weather allows, you’ll get a chance to peer down into Ambrym’s famous lakes of lava.

    Our sedate aircraft are perfect for still or video photography. The wings are on top and everyone has a window seat, affording spectacular photo opportunities.

    Shortly after departure from overhead Ambrym volcano, you will touch down at Lamen Bay’s grass airstrip, on northwest Epi Island. A boat transfer will take you across the azure waters of Lamen Bay, to Sunset Bungalows, where morning tea of organic, island “kai-kai” lovingly prepared by Taso and family will be served.

    After morning tea, laze on the beach or grab your snorkeling gear and search for turtles, regularly spotted feeding on the sea-grass in the bay. You will then be invited to reboard your boat for a trip to Lamen Island, in search of dugong, which are also attracted to the area by the abundant supply of sea-grass.

    The flight back to Port Vila takes you over stunning Cooks Reef, completing a Vanuatu adventure you won’t soon forget.
