A POSSIBLE BEAUTIFUL ITINERARY
The Rhythm of Paradise
You arrive in Port-Vila. It was a long flight, but you immediately begin to sense that things in Vanuatu move at a different rhythm. You get to a welcoming resort next to a sandy beach. You change into your bathing suit: sunset in the pool with drinks, with views to a coral reef. It usually takes you some time to find your holiday mood… well, this time it found you.
Making the Most out of Our Connections
Kami, one of Andrea’s connections, drives you around the Island of Efate and shows you the best of Port-Vila. He takes you to fishing villages where you eat with the locals. The food is delicious, no restaurant can get it fresher. Next, you go kayaking in a Blue Lagoon, snorkeling in a coral reef, and return to the resort for another perfect sunset: now, you are really in your holiday mood.Read more
Songs of Lava
Mount Yasur is capricious. It erupts and puts on quite a show. You feel the rumblings of the volcano beneath your feet. At first you feel a bit nervous, but your guides are reassuring. Actually, you are beginning to like it. Your room for the night is atop a tree-house overlooking the volcano. From your window you can see lava explosions. You sleep better than ever and you wonder, do volcanoes sing lullabies?
Aboard the Vaka
The Vaka is a Polynesian Sailing Boat. It is a traditional design, that has allowed local cultures to travel between the islands of the archipelago. You are sure they usually lack chocolate and red wine, but you welcome these modern touches nonetheless. During the night, the South Pacific sky is splattered with stars. During the day, the blue expanses are full of life. Swimming with the dugong, is an experience you will never forget.
A Glimpse of Eden
Sailing the Vanuatu Archipelago has been quite an adventure. You feel that it is time to come ashore. Ratua Island is private, and has been turned into an eco-resort. It is a place where all worries and concerns simply seem to fade away. It has an innocence that brings up the child in you. You were thinking about relaxing with drinks, but no, there is still time for another adventure: swimming in the ocean with horses.
