Cultural Trails of Vanuatu - A Guest Photo Story

  • Written by interNATIONAL PARKtours

This Photo Story was kindly supplied by Brian Alston and Betty Weiler - guests on our inaugural 2016 Vanuatu - South Pacific Paradise Journey.

The earth below us rumbled, there was a huge billowing of grey/brown smoke, followed by a short fireworks display as molten rocks shot into the air and then fell, still glowing red, with a clunk to the ground. Such is the might and awe of Yasur, the most accessible active volcano in the world, on the Island of Tanna, Vanuatu.

Here we were on the rim of an active volcano, standing in the darkness, waiting expectantly for the next explosion and light show. Hardly what you might expect from an Island paradise, surrounded by coral reefs, exotic fish, palm fringed beaches and crystal clear blue waters. Vanuatu has lots more to offer the intrepid traveller. Beyond the well-trodden tourist trails and cruise ship bedraggled Port Villa there is a myriad of authentic cultural experiences and adventures to be had.

Nature really does clear your head!

Nature really does clear your head!

The great outdoors might just be greater than you think. There are plenty of us who love to spend as many hours of the day outdoors as we can, and walking is obviously quite healthy for the body, but few of us ever give a lot of thought to how nature walking could benefit our mental health as well. According to a study published last July, a 90 minute walk through a natural environment had a huge positive impact on participants. In a survey taken afterwards, those people who took the natural walk showed far lower levels of brooding, or obsessive worry. Whereas, the control group spent that 90 minutes walking through a city actually reported no such difference.
