Island Discovery


Discover the island of Efate, starting with a short walk through the lush rain forest to Iarofa Village to meet a traditional Melanesian warrior. Hear a local guide provide an informative commentary about the traditional customs and traditional village way of life. Witness the time-honoured art of fire walking and learn of the tradition, the sacrifices and preparation the men undertake prior to this ritual. Morning tea will be served here. Next stop is the refreshing natural swimming hole at Eden on the River. Then onto a white sandy beach, which allows for stretching your legs, taking a photo and a quick 15- to 20-minute refreshing swim. Journey on, passing more contemporary villages and catch glimpses of modern village life. Pass by the remnants of the American Armed Forces involvement in Vanuatu during World War II before arriving at a rustic local restaurant for a freshly packed lunch. Then, continue along picturesque Havana Harbour to the beach used during the filming of Survivor Vanuatu. On the way back to Port Vila, pass Klems Hill Lookout, which provides a superb view over Mele Bay, Hideaway Island and the township in the distance. Notes: Wear comfortable walking shoes. Shade is limited; please dress accordingly. Bring a hat and wear sunscreen.
