Watch the sunset on top of an active volcano

With magma exploding just a few metres away, visiting Mount Yasur might be one of the coolest things you’ll ever do. Mount Yasur is an active volcano located on the south-east side of the island of Tanna and it has been erupting almost continuously for centuries. Although the volcano may look dangerous, it is still fairly safe to access even though it erupts multiple times an hour (then again, I was late and missed the safety briefing!).

You can drive nearly all the way up the volcano and then it’s just a 10 minute walk to the top (it took me about two minutes, I was that excited!).

Surf’s up, read full story.
