8 DAYS CLASSIC VANUATU

In Santo, snorkel or dive among fascinating World War II wrecks, now home to colorful reefs and a variety of marine life! Glide over a surreal Blue Hole in an outrigger canoe, go on an exciting caving adventure. In Tanna, feel the incredible power of majestic Yasur as a violent explosion sends showers of red-hot magma and large rocks skyward, every few minutes, atop the world’s most accessible active volcano. Meet the local tribes whose traditions remain unchanged for generations. End your trip in an idyllic, barefoot luxury resort in northwest Efate, passing the compact capital of Port Vila where the pace is slow and the people are lovely.
