Start the tour with a free transfer from either of the 2 locations in Port Vila with transfers departing daily at 9 AM and 1 PM.

Port Vila: Jungle Walk and Suspension Skybridge

Explore the rainforest paths, visit our goats, take photos on the scenic Skybridge 65 metres high with sweeping 360 degree views, and have a refreshment at our covered tables while admiring the view.

What people are saying about Port Vila

Picked up from the port. Easy to spot staff as they were wearing eco-tour t-shirts. Spent a lovely day kayaking in a lovely spot. Staff were lovely and made for an enjoyable day. Lovely fruit platter was served after kayaking, then we all swam and used the rope swing into the water. Highly recommend this tour.

Thanks George and Ronnie! It was such a fun activity!
