Island Explorer

Experience village life on a pristine tropical island. Follow your hosts on stunning half-day island walks. Snorkel in sparkling waters in front of your own beachside bungalow.

3 Days / 2 Nights

Our Island Explorer tour is an unforgettable eco-adventure: an outer island experience that brings you in touch with the real Vanuatu.  As Nguna and Pele Islands can be safely accessed by boat, there is no need for expensive airfares.Your Vanuatu Ecotours driver will escort you to the islands where you will be looked after by your village hosts.  Vanuatu locals, whose way of life is strongly imbued with traditions, show a great sense of hospitality. Curious and talkative, they will welcome you with open arms. You will stay in basic, but comfortable, village bungalows on the beach and enjoy home-cooked food straight from organic gardens and, if you are lucky, fresh seafood.

At Nguna, you have a choice which walk you do. The Volcano Walk takes you atop one of Nguna’s extinct volcanoes where you are rewarded with sweeping views across the Shepherd Islands to the north, and south to Efate.  It takes 3 ½ hours on average, and parts of the walk are steep.   The intriguing Environment Walk takes about 3 hours and is a good option for families.  Explore a community conservation area at Nguna’s smallest village – a fascinating mixture of old forest, historic relics and community gardens.  Please note that you must choose your walk before you depart

The spectacular Round-Island Walk at Pele also takes about 3 hours and involves some wading and clambering over rocks.

You may book this tour without the walks.

The tour also allows ample time to relax on Pele’s iconic white sand beaches and to snorkel Nguna’s famous marine conservation area.

The vehicle transfer to the wharf at north Efate follows the west coast road and the transfer back follows the east coast road, meaning you also get to do a scenic round-Efate tour!
