Port Vila

Welcome to Port Vila, the capital of Vanuatu. Your adventure begins today with a welcome meeting at 6 pm at your accommodation. There are no other activities planned for the day. If you arrive with time to spare before the welcome meeting, the heart of the city and the waterfront promenade are just a short walk from the hotel.

Pentecost Island

Start the day early to catch a flight to Lonorore on Pentecost island, where you will have the chance to witness and understand the cultural practices of the land-diving Indigenous people, as well as explore the remote South Pentecost region. Transfer straight to the land diving tower to see the heart-stopping naghol ceremony. You’ll be amazed at what Lonely Planet has described as ‘the most remarkable custom in all of Melanesia’. Watch the jumpers haul themselves off the platforms as part of a ritual that functions as a coming-of-age for young men, a blessing of the earth for upcoming harvests, and a nod to an age-old Pentecost legend. Afterwards, when day trip visitors board their vehicles to head back to the airport, you will make your way to a nearby coastal village for the chance to meet your local hosts and enjoy a traditional lunch. Spend the afternoon exploring the village, when you’ll have the opportunity to meet and talk to some of the men who dived from the tower in the morning. As the sun sets across the ocean, your hosts will prepare a traditional kava ceremony to formally welcome you to the village.

Pentecost Island

Today you’ll explore the natural beauty of the region through a half day trek through rainforest and villages, which is another chance to meet and connect with the communities who call this special place home. End the day swimming and relaxing at the beautiful sandy beaches. Your beach bungalow accommodation is the perfect way to soak up the island paradise vibes.

Pentecost Island - Port Vila

This morning your new land diving friends will take you for a paddle in a traditional outrigger canoe, before a morning transfer to the airport for the Air Vanuatu flight back to Port Vila. In the late afternoon, you will take a 10-minute drive to Pango Peninsula for an easy walk along the coast and bays to a special snorkelling spot, where you can get acquainted with the underwater world and enjoy spectacular coral gardens, all before a sunset across the harbour. Farewell your leader and group tonight with an optional final night dinner.

Port Vila

Your Vanuatu experience concludes today after breakfast. There are no activities included today and you are free to depart at any time.
