10 Days/9 Nights South East-West Ambrym & Central Malekula
The ultimate package for keen walkers and adventure-seekers. Starting in the south-east of Ambrym experience the unique kastom of Endu village, including bush-craft and traditional hunting techniques, before departing on a challenging trek up to Ambrym's two live volcanoes. To fully experience the atmosphere of the lunar-like ash planes you will stay three nights on the edge of the caldera in both East and West Camps and climb Mount Marum and Benbow to see their lakes of furious molten lava. Your volcanic encounter concludes descending back through the tropical jungle to Port Vato and onto Craig Cove to relax for the night. The following day you will fly to Malekula and immediately transfer south to begin the iconic 4 day Manbush Trail - an intrepid and energetic jungle-trek traversing the remote mountains of central Malekula staying in local houses and bush accommodation while learning all about the jungle and traditional life on the way. Your adventure concludes in South West Bay, where you will relax for the evening before flying out the following day.
