Said to bring a bountiful yam harvest, these brave young men leap from the hand-built towers with vines tied to their ankles to break their fall. This unique and spectacular event is said to have inspired AJ Hackett to invent bungee jumping in New Zealand!

Wild horses roam the plains, with coffee plantations and remote villages dotting the landscape as you get close to the distant volcano and Tanna’s east coast, with its rugged black sand beaches. Arriving at the volcano entrance, you’ll be greeted by the local guides and go through a safety briefing before the drive over the ashy landscape towards the volcano. You’ll then embark on a short, steep, 10-minute walk to the rim of the crater, where you’ll experience the bubbling, orange lava inside Mount Yasur.

    Vanuatu’s climate is influenced by the trade winds with different climates in different sections of the archipelago. The northern islands nearer the equator, including Pentecost and Espiritu Santo, remain hot with tropical rain all year round, while the central and southern islands including Tanna and Port Vila are more seasonal. From December to March the warm and wet season arrives, before the cool and drier season from May to October.
