Warm TURQUOISE lagoons + White Sandy Beaches +

Colourful Marine Life + Melanesian Culture = GREAT FAMILY FUN

Vanuatu

Vanuatu, sometimes called “ the greatest hits of the world’s most spectacular experiences”, has untouched rainforests, volcanic islands, lush tropical beaches and villages of ancient tribes. 

Port Vila is our base, giving us easy access to an incredible array of family friendly adventures both on and off the water.

OUR Adventures

  • Kayak down gentle freshwater rivers, surrounded by lush tropical forest and witness local village life on the shore
  • Swim with turtles and learn about the conservation efforts to protect them
  • Soar through the canopy of the Vanuatu jungle and its amazing views with Vanuatu Jungle Zipline
  • Learn to surf together in a perfect, family friendly lagoon tailor made for kids lessons
  • Discover the lifestyle of ni-Vanuatu people with day or overnight trips and guided walks on remote islands
  • Paddleboard or sea kayak on turquoise waters over to small islands
  • Sample the wares at the local chocolate factory and learn how the local islands earn their living from it

What’s to love?

  • The people of Vanuatu (or ni-Vanuatu) live a simple but community-centered life. Always smiling the ni-Vanuatu are said to be the happiest souls in the world. If visiting the local villages you will get the opportunity to experience the culture and traditions of the indigenous people
  • Cascading waterfalls, natural waterholes, and hot mineral springs are in abundance. On top of deserted pristine beaches, there is way more water action for the kids than the hotel pool!
  • Crystal clear water and plentiful coral make Vanuatu a sought after diving and snorkelling destination. And where else in the world can you post a proper waterproof postcard back to the whanau?

Your adventure includes:

  • 7 nights in the accommodation of your choice
  • Airport transfers
  • A choice of activities from our adventure program 
  • Transport to all activities
  • All equipment, tuition, and supervision from instructors 
  • Welcome dinner booked at a family friendly restaurant (if your timing fits experience the legendary beach bar fire or circus shows over dinner. Kids love it!)
  • As many tips of dos and donts as you can handle!

Flights are not included but we are happy to arrange these for you also.

All Pick n Mix adventure tours have a programme of active, fun adventures INCLUDED in the price of the holiday. We have negotiated great rates with our chosen suppliers.

DATES

Our next Vanuatu adventure departs on Friday 3rd July 2020 for 7 nights. Air Vanuatu flies direct on this day departing at 11.35 and arriving at 14.10 which is a more child-friendly departure than other days. If you are not able to make a Friday flight, no worries catch up with us on Saturday. Just be warned that the Saturday flight departs at 17.55 and arrives at 20.30 so it can be a late arrival for young ones. And you will miss any activities on Day 1.
