Marvel at the awe-inspiring beauty of Mount Yasur, an active volcano on Tanna Island that has been erupting continuously for 800 years. Mild eruptions still occur several times an hour. Despite its activity, visitors can approach this attraction safely according to strict government guidelines. Consider visiting late in the day so you can view the eruptions during both daylight and nighttime. Access involves a bumpy ride on rough roads and a short hike to the viewing point. When you go, keep in mind Captain James Cook himself was once drawn to the island by the volcano's glowing light and tried to climb the attraction before villagers stopped him, saying the volcano was sacred.
