Adventure Tours in the Philippines

Set between the West Philippine Sea and the Pacific Ocean, the Philippines has been a mythical and largely undiscovered mystery for many Australian and New Zealand travellers for some time. Still considered to be relatively untravelled, the tropical archipelago is a hidden gem for those seeking more adventurous off-the-beaten-track destinations.

For those travellers wanting to journey deeper and fully immerse themselves in local cultures and natural environments, a number of adventurous tour operators in the Philippines have them covered. These well respected and trusted operators take guests safely away from the tourist trail to experience a different side to travelling in the Philippines. Travellers will interact with friendly locals, discover delicious local cuisine and discover indescribable natural beauty during an array of special experiences and travel highlights.

Ms Norjamin Delos Reyes, Tourism Attaché at Philippine Department of Tourism Australia and New Zealand said,

“Adventure travel is booming at the moment, and more and more travellers are looking to discover the road less travelled. The Philippines is the perfect destinations for those looking to leave the tourist trail behind, however with over 7,000 islands to discover it can be a daunting task to know where to go. Luckily, a number of tour operators offer a variety of more unique and authentic adventures in the Philippines for curious travellers. From explorations on board traditional boats which transport travellers to the most remote islands in Palawan, to the chaos of a Filipino wet market, these tours allow travellers to get up close and personal with the Philippines.”

Tao Philippines

Tao Philippines offers travellers the rare opportunity to experience and interact with people and communities in the area. It provides a personal insight into life in a tropical archipelago during a variety of boat expeditions and island retreats in the most remote corners of the Philippines. The company began as an unplanned adventurous exploration on board an old fishing boat on a 200km route in the remote villages of northern Palawan. This long journey resulted in many home stays with families and young islanders, and was the inspiration behind Tao Philippines, which allows unsuspecting travellers a raw experience of undiscovered islands hosted by a community of families. Today, Tao Philippines is a community of over 200 islanders working with passion and a sense of pride, welcoming worldly travellers from all over the globe.
