Transfer to a trail through the lush Vanuatu gardens and walk with your guide to picturesque Runsuc Village.

A warm Melanesian welcome awaits you, performed by the young men of the village. Watch the warriors’ traditional dance as the locals will provide an informative commentary about the customs and traditions of village life. They will also demonstrate the ancient art of sand drawing and the preparation of Pentecost custom mats.

You will be fortunate enough to experience Master Chef Vanuatu-style as the ladies of the village share the secrets of making snake lap-lap in an underground oven -- something every Western cook needs to know.

Finally, you will be invited to take part in the ceremonial kava tasting and witness a fire-walking ceremony -- the cringe-worthy rite of passage into manhood demonstrated by the men of the village.

Notes:

Wear sunscreen, insect repellent and a hat.
