The whole world is an art gallery when you're mindful. There are beautiful things everywhere and they're free.

Explore a remote and particularly unknown archipelago in the Pacific Ocean, where the preservation of cultures, environments, and endangered species plays a vital role. The Vanuatu Islands are made up of about 80 islands that stretch over 1 300 kilometres. Its nearest neighbour is the Solomon Island, just over 170 kilometres to the north. With very limited developments and a minimal population, exploration by yacht offers unforgettable memories in the uttermost comfort and splendour in this undiscovered archipelago.
Pronounced Van-Wah-too, Vanuatu means "Our Land" – the word for Land (Vanua, fanua or fenua) is one of the common Pacific words. The country's people are called Ni-Vanuatu meaning “Of Vanuatu”. In many ways it is the Ni-Vanuatu who make a visit to the country special, once that their warmth and friendliness are genuine and infectious.
Vanuatu is quite unlike anywhere else, so, sit back and experience one of the most spectacular places on earth. With some of the world’s most diverse hiking trails. From soaring, steamy mountain peaks to standing on the crater’s edge of an active volcano. Venture into the dense jungle and connect with the local community, meet the Big Namba and Small Namba tribes. This rare opportunity you will communicate with the tribe members and learn about their traditional ceremonies and customary dances. If you are really feeling adventurous, we will take you inland through Nambel Village, canyoning across caves and the most flamboyant blue waters you’ve ever seen, reach the Millennium Cave Waterfalls and Hidden World Waterfall. Here, you can enjoy truly world-class diving as you explore caves, tunnels, and stunning reef walls. Meet the people who perform the world-famous Nagol, or land diving. Visit their villages and listen to their stories that depict this incredible ritual.
Together with your dive master come face to face with the natural wonders of the Vanuatu’s underwater world, like the Twin Bommies and underwater volcanoes and wrecks like the world-famous SS President Coolidge and Tasman.
