Although most people travel to Vanuatu to enjoy a relaxing holiday soaking up the fascinating ancient culture and doing not very much at all, there's actually quite a lot to see and do in Vanuatu if the mood takes you. When you've had enough of the sun, sand and sipping cocktails by the pool and you're looking for something a little more exciting to fill your days with, there are a great range of Vanuatu tours and activities to choose from in both Espiritu Santo and Efate.
On the island of Espiritu Santo, you can enjoy a number of tours and activities including canoeing the Riri River, visiting the northern seaside and Blue Holes as well as taking in some of the fascinating World War II history. From dugout canoes to exploring on foot and even the comfort of an air conditioned coach, these tours and activities offer an amazing experience right in the heart of all the action with half day and full day options available. Taking in historic, cultural and natural attractions, these tours visit coconut plantations, dense jungle and even local villages , offering a fascinating insight into the real Vanuatu.
On the island of Efate, this tourist mecca offers its own diverse range of tours and activities including round island safaris, sunset and adventure cruises, visits to the traditional Ekasup Village, the breathtaking Mele Cascades, an exciting jetboat experience as well as a tour of beautiful Hideaway Island. If you're after something a little more leisurely, the village tour is a great way to learn about traditional Vanuatu culture while Hideaway Island allows you to get up close and personal with the local tropical marine life or why not cool off at the amazing Mele Cascades waterfalls. Of course if you're looking to get the blood pumping, nothing beats a jetboat experience, adventure cruise or island safari. With full day and half day options to choose from, regardless of how much free time you have left you can see a different side to Vanuatu outside the confines of your resort.
