Tanna island is home to Mt Yasur one of the most accessible volcanoes in the world and one of Vanuatu's most popular attractions. Mt Yasur is in action every few minutes, throwing up blazing magma chunks and lava bombs high into the air in an incredible fireworks display, accompanied by ground-shaking rumbles. Best seen at night, visiting Mt Yasur is the thrill of a lifetime! Unity Airlines offers Day, Twilight, and Overnight Tours in multi-engine planes to this marvel of nature.

Unity planned this day trip very well. The plane from Efate was good, pilot excellent, and the tour was very enjoyable. Standing on the rim of an active volcano was an awesome experience. The twilight flyover the volcano was also really enjoyable.

Cannot recommend this tour enough. No words can describe how it feels to be on the rim of a volcano at nighttime. You HAVE to experience this for yourself. Unity did a great job taking care of us from door to door. Definitely recommend them as the tour coordinator.

The Twilight Volcano tour was the highlight of our holiday, a once in a lifetime trip that was well worth the money when you reflect back on the whole experience. Saw lava being spat hundreds of feet into the air. In hindsight, we would've stayed overnight on Tanna as is a long day. Comfy shoes or trainers, video camera a... More

We did the Tanna Volcano Tour, super well organised, very smooth and safe charter flight and a very well organised day out at Tanna visiting a local village and going to Yasur (volcano). The volcano is still active so it was an unforgettable experience to see it erupt. It is completely safe but you need a scarf to cover your... More

Went on the day tour to Mount Yasur on Tanna island. The tour was well organised and the volcano itself is mesmerizing.

Totally recommend this trip. It was an experience my children and I will never forget and was worth every cent. The tour was well organised and we were well taken care of it. Yassur was active enough to be breathtaking, but still felt safe. Just cant say enough about how much we enjoyed the experience.

This was a fantastic first time experience and what an amazing island. Not enough advertising regarding this island but a great place to go. We only did the day trip but wish we had stayed the night and seen it at night. Spectacular scenery as we flew from Port Vila - well worth the money
