Silversea Expedition Cruises To AMBRYM ISLAND

Silversea Luxury Cruises - Ambrym, Vanuatu

Unlike Espiritu Santo with its raised coral reefs and white sand, Ambrym is a volcanically active island with dark sand beaches. Ambrym is known as the island of magic and is the source of five local languages that all evolved on Ambrym. This handful of languages contributes to the well over 100 languages of Vanuatu. Some of Ambrym’s magic takes place in the lush greenery of the local community of Ranon. Here the people perform a very special and traditional ‘Rom’ dance. View more

Participants prepare their masks and costumes in secrecy and the dance is reserved for special occasions.

Excursions in AMBRYM ISLAND

Expedition Activities with Silversea Expedition team

Arrive to the magical island of Ambrym, a sacred place to visit. Ambrym is a volcanic island known for its black sand beaches and the traditional Rom dance.


Ambrym is known as the island of magic and of the 113 local language of Vanuatu - five of these languages are spoken on Ambrym in addition to Bislama, one of the three official languages of the country.


Go ashore near Ranon to take a tour of the local community and see the very unique Rom dance. Normally these dances are only shown during grade-taking ceremonies or men's secret society meetings and on those occasions the participants actually prepare their masks and costumes in secrecy. The dance, which involves chanting and men in ornate costume, is mesmerizing to behold. Also enjoy entertainment by one of the local string bands.


Conditions permitting, see some of Vanuatu's sand drawings. Although some might simply see them as aesthetically pleasing drawings, UNESCO has recognized them as a local "writing" system and inscribed them on the Representative List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.


With sufficient time and interest, there may be a hike to Fanla to visit the cultural village. Make your return hike and return to the ship.
