Ready to lace up those hiking boots and head somewhere exotic? You'd be hard pressed to find anywhere more beautiful to hit the trail than Vanuatu. While its islands are surrounded by plenty of crystal-clear inviting waters that are great for swimming and diving, it's the exciting range of hiking options on offer that make this country extra special. Here are some of the walks you simply must tackle when you head here on your island holiday. Trek the volcanic landscape Have you ever seen a landscape completely dominated by volcanoes? If not, you'll be treated to this new and exciting sight in Vanuatu. In many cases, you can get up close and personal with the volcanic wonders, too. Head to Mount Yasur on Tanna Island, though be sure to check out how active the mountain is before you go as sometimes it's off limits. You can take a guided tour, or even a twilight tour that will have you journeying to the spot at night, when the orange and red glow of magma and looks particularly amazing contrasted against the dark sky. Wander the Vatthe Conservation Area You've never seen green until you've visited the Vatthe Conservation Area on Santo Island in Vanuatu! This huge stretch of lush rainforest is home to an extreme variety of plant and wildlife and is marvellously preserved. Take a guided walk through the area looking out for birds, gazing over cliffs and into the sparkling ocean, or take an unguided stroll along the stretches of beach that border the forest. Stroll to the Mele Cascades While you're visiting the island of Efate, you must take a wander to the beautiful Mele Cascades waterfall. Dip in the refreshing waters to your heart's content and bring a packed lunch along, because it's an idyllic waterhole for a lunchtime picnic, too! Don't just linger in the pool, however. Embark on a short hike to the top and check out the views from the top lookout, which are sure to take your breath away.
