There are numerous opportunities for trekking in the Philippines, accompanied by local guides. Day Treks are available at most island destinations, such as El Nido, or north of Manila on Mt Pinatubo.
Enjoy treks over several days, ranging from leisurely to the more challenging, amidst the stunning Rice Terraces of Banaue and Bontoc.
Volcano Trekking is for the adventurer who wants a challenge, and is restricted to adults only. Climb Mt Mayon Volcano in Bicol, where overnight camping is available). Alternatively trek through rain forest on a journey up Mt Bulusan Volcano, with camping on the way - a remarkable experience. For a 3, 4, 5, 6, or 7 day Twin Volcano experience, we can combine both Mayon and Bulusan!

Stay on Ticao Island for a chance to "own" a horse for the duration of your stay. Groom and care for your horse, with the assistance of a guide, and enjoy unlimited riding! Maybe combine this with Diving, as there's a Dive Shop too!
Horse-riding may also be enjoyed in Dumaguete.
Nestling in the warm waters of the South China Seas and Pacific Ocean, it's little wonder that the Philippines is a mecca for the watersports enthusiast, especially as the archipelago is made up of so many beautiful islands! Let us create a bespoke sporting holiday where you can enjoy a combination of activities.
Kayaking is popular almost everywhere, but particularly in Palawan, and is the perfect way to explore quiet bays and lagoons.
The more adventurous will try parasailing and kiteboarding, or maybe a jetski, to get around that little bit faster!
Try Whitewater Kayaking on Mindoro Island, (near Puerto Galera)!
Those looking to experience the thrills of Whitewater Rafting, should head up to the north of Luzon, to the Cagayan Valley.
Surfers need go no further than La Union, north west of Manila, facing the South China Sea, where we will accommodate you in a stylish beach-side resort with daily surfing lessons available, or alternatively Baler, a few hours journey to the east of Manila, facing the Pacific Ocean.
Surfing is also a serious activity on Siargao Island, in the south of the Philippines, where you can also take advantage of the Pacific waves.
And we shouldn't forget the paradise that lies beneath the waves. Amidst the coral reefs, a vast amount of diverse marine life exists. No wonder the Philippines is a magnet for snorkelers, or those that like to explore the depths. Almost all beach resorts have dive centres, and we can arrange holidays with diver training for those that wish to take up the sport. More on Diving...
We work with a number of small cruise ships, and dive boats of all sizes that offer Liveaboard trips to areas like Tubbataha reef, El Nido, the Calamian islands, and the Visayas. See more on our Diving Page.
Head to Palawan or Boracay if you'd like to experience the thrill of kiteboarding. Contact us if you'd like us to arrange a holiday to include Kiteboarding or Parasailing lessons.
Whether you're an experienced sailor, or wishing to learn, enjoy sailing on Lake Taal, Tagaytay, (close to Manila), or at Puerto Galera, in one of the world's most beautiful bays. Our dedicated page gives information about our Learn to Sail holidays HERE....
If you're looking for sea-fishing experiences in the Philippines, close to Manila, we can arrange a day trip to Batangas, for groups of up to 4 persons, including tackle, refreshments, and boat crew. Fishing is from a traditional bangka, or speedboat (more expensive). If interested, let us know.
Alternatively we can take you to Siargao Island - the country's main destination for the sport. (Siargao is also famous for surfing.)
All year round, catches include sailfish, jack and giant trivially, yellow fin tuna, skipjack tuna, dorado, and for the lucky ones, marlin.
March to May is best for big-game fishing - and is the season for sailfish, for which Siargao Island is famous. Wahoo (tangigue) and yellow fin tuna are also caught during this time. Trolling for dorado (also known as dolphin fish and mahi- mahi) is possible between August and November.
Let us organise your fishing expedition, and fish with the best fishing guides the island has to offer. Professional equipment is available for hire should you not be able to bring your own.
Stay on Ticao Island and you can have your own horse to care for during your stay. Pony-Trek around the island, accompanied by a guide.
Enjoy a short Trek by horse at Lake Taal, Tagaytay - part of our Tagaytay, and Taal Volcano tours.
Visit Dumaguete, Negros, and spend your time riding either around your resort, the beach, or neighbouring hills. Please enquire if this is of interest to you...
