If you are looking for a shore excursion while you are in Port Vila, Vanuatu off your cruise, or even while on holiday, then I can recommend a trip to the Bridges of Eden.
Located about a 20-minutes scenic drive from Vila you will find the Bridges of Eden, a lush eco paradise with the unique opportunity to get up-close and personal with a pristine environment and its soothing vibes.
You will be meet by trained guides on arrival - who will give you a safety briefing then you’ll be fitted into your full-body harness. You will start with a gentle walk through the edge of the garden before you head to the start of the river walk. You will pass a through magnificent forest before walking over three suspension bridges (longest is 52 metres long and approximately 2 to 4 metres above the river). There is also a zip line across the river.
There will be extra time at the end of your tour to take a refreshing tip in fresh-water swimming hole – this can also be access by sliding down a waterfall or by simply enjoying the gardens as you walk back to where you started the tour to enjoy refreshments and a freshly picked tropical fruit platter.
