HIGHLIGHTS
  • Embark on a threeday trek through rice fields, forests and villages, staying in local Ifugao communities along the way.
  • Just 25 years old, the lakefilled crater of Mt Pinatubo is a fresh wonder to explore – trek to the summit and camp right next to pristine emerald waters in the heart of the volcano.
  • Take an evening adventure to the Iwahig River where you’ll see swarms of fireflies dancing at dusk. The natural beauty of the Philippines continues to shine, whatever time of day.
  • Enjoy a full day of island hopping and snorkelling off the coast of El Nido. Look to the bottom of these clear waters, and glide among the coral and tropical fish.
Starting in Manila and ending in El Nido, the Philippine Adventure tour is a guided trekking trip that takes 18 days. You will travel through Sagada, El Nido, Baguio and 7 other destinations in the Philippines. Philippine Adventure is a small group tour which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Discover spectacular mountains, picturesque rice terraces, stunning beaches and vibrant cities on a 19-day exploration through the heart of the Philippines. See the fusion of the past and present in Manila, admire the world’s oldest rice terraces in Banaue, be intrigued by the curious Hanging Coffins in Echo Valley and relax on the beach in sunny El Nido. Snorkel in the sapphire waters of the South China Sea, discover the limestone caves of Sabang and see fireflies dancing at dusk at the Iwahig River. With plenty of free time to travel your own way, this is an island getaway abounding with natural beauty, stunning landscapes and welcoming local communities – you really are getting a true taste of what the fascinating Philippines can offer.

“This trip took us to see parts of Thailand less frequented by tourists. It was well organized, offered good food and a good mix of activities and private time. Our guide Damrong Thepkong, was very professional and kept everything moving”

“Great for first timer to India - it covers a range of places with different vibes starting from the hustle bustle capital to very small local villages, safaris, and 'touristy' cities (trust me it's actually nice to be able to have a proper coffee and/or go (window) shopping after 10 days of indulging in local culture.) And touristy places in India are far less busy like what you see in other countries.

Our tour guide was very well-organised and very helpful for those who required extra assistance - like losing baggage / passport / remembering wrong flight times / having gold fish memory (yes... this all happened in the trip..). You would't need to worry if you're clumsy or forgetful as Intrepid tour guides will have you covered.

The itinerary is skewed towards a leisure one hence why the average age of our group is 50+ ranging from late 20's to 70's. If you're simply looking for a cultural experience I'd say this is the perfect choice. But if you're a bit more active and adventurous like me then you may feel too protected and bored somtimes.

Lastly some tips for shopping - save your money until you get to Udaipur as there's many more options and prices are a lot better. That way you don't need to lug around extra weight early in the trip too. Remember to bargain at expensive & bigger shops (those are the wealthy ones and they rip you off by a big margin) and not so much at the smaller shops (they aren't as rich!). Tour guides would sometimes hush you into particular shops unfortunately.. but don't feel pressured to make a purchase (easier said than done though) as those shop keepers are good at pitching.”
