Full description
After pickup from your accommodation in Port Vila, head off on your choice of 1 of 2 morning walks. The Volcano Walk is a steep but rewarding hike, lasting 3.5 hours up the side of one of Nguna’s extinct volcanoes. Once atop the hulking mass of rock, take in sweeping views across the Shepherd Islands to the north, and south to Efate. If you’re in the mood for something less intense, choose the Environment Walk, perfect for families. Explore a community conservation area at Nguna’s smallest village, a fascinating mixture of old forest, historic relics, and community gardens.  After your morning walk, enjoy a sumptuous buffet lunch by the beach, gazing out across the crystal-clear seas as you dine. Afterwards, head into the ocean and snorkel Nguna’s famous marine conservation area. Expect lots of fish, maybe the occasional turtle, and plenty of hard corals and small canyons and crevasses to explore. Afterwards, you’ll be transferred back to your accommodation in Port Vila.
