Enjoying a slice of Eden


If you get the chance, take a day trip and head to Eden On the River, a 20-minute drive out of Port Vila, writes JON UNDERWOOD.

Devastated during Cyclone Pam in 2015, this eco-retreat has been painstakingly put back together by the owners and now offers a range of tours for the whole family.

 

Nature at its best in Vanuatu

 

There are three suspended rope bridges to cross (very Indiana Jones) before a short zipline brings you back to earth, or you can simply jump in a rubber tube and float down the river.

 

Gardeners will appreciate the guided tours of the property, with its huge variety of flora. And the fauna is also in abundance at the Farm Park, where kids of all ages can pet and feed the animals.

 

A new putt putt course has also just been installed, adding to the attractions.

Eden On the River is highly recommended for those looking to keep the ankle-biters amused for a few hours, or for those who just want to find some peace and quiet among the garden beds.

 

You can choose to do one tour or spend a day here and do all of them. One thing is for sure: you’ll definitely find plenty to do.
