We’ll help you escape into a world of desert islands, drowsy rivers and glittering seas.
7,000 islands, sprawled across the edge of the Pacific. A remote place. A place where time slows to a honeyed trickle. Desert islands of cocoa plants, volcano slopes, rice terraces and Spanish churches. It’s about the chocolate-scented hills of Bohol. The weather-worn ferry that carries you to the waters of pretty Pamalican. It’s about jade-green palms bend their heads into the water. It’s about a private hideaway perched on the limestone cliffs of Panglao Island, buzzing with wildlife, sky fading to crushed and powdered pink. You come here to escape. To dive. To relax. To explore. Eat Filipino delicacies aboard a private yacht, wending down the achingly beautiful Loboc River. Go in search of curious Tarsiers. Find peace on the coral-fringed island of Palawan. Kayak between the caves and coves of enigmatic El Nido. We’ll help you find bliss – and to keep on finding it.
Can’t see it here? No problem. Just ask, and we’ll get to work.
During this unique experience, you’ll join a local foodie insider on a culinary tour of Filipino eating. Take ‘almusal’ breakfast in Santa Ana. Eat banana fritters in the market. Eat lunch with a host family in Pancit Palabok and try historic dishes in the world’s oldest Chinatown.
This magisterial island, of glittering lagoons and plunging limestone cliffs, is a sight for sore eyes. Take your kayak and explore its many mysterious coves, caves and inslets, from Lagen Island to the dusky beaches of El Nido. We’ll even arrange for a Filipino hilot massage along the way.
Head out early with a local guide to meet the historic Batak Tribe. Having lived in the mountains for generations, your hosts will introduce you to the people, tales of their ancestors, and the secrets of their ancient way of life. A further trip can take you along the mysterious Subway River, a vibrant ecosystem of exotic flora and fauna, like macaques and Monitor lizards.
On this experience, you’ll explore the wildly thrilling landscapes of Corella by motorbike. Joined by a local guide, you’ll come face to face with secret waterfalls, a tarsier sanctuary and the whale coast of Panglao Island. We can arrange lunch at the sufficiently sweet Bohol bee farm. The scent is unforgettable.
The landscapes and waterways of Bohol are famous – and for good reason. On this languorous tour, you’ll boat a historic boat and meander down the exotic topaz Loboc River, with a stop-off to explore the ethereal Chocolate Hills. Lunch is served on board, of course.
Curious ports, surreal landscapes and thrilling wildlife.
Gigantic fists of jungle-coated basalt punch up from a sea of violently bright water. This is Palawan; a long sliver of an archipelago that runs some 650 thin kilometres to the lip of Borneo. It has insanely rich wildlife, marine life, and landscapes. At its edge, the tumbling, vibrant settlements of Coron and El Nido feel like frontier-towns at the edge of a vast unknown. And we’ll introduce you to what lies beyond them.
BOHOL'S CHOCOLATE HILLS
Surreal landscapes, viewing decks and UNESCO heritage.
The Chocolate Hills of Bohol – dustily brown, curiously mounded – are easily one of the most iconic sights in the Philippines. There are over 1,000 of these formations in total, seeming more like gooey truffles. At their edge lie the bustling towns of Carmen and Batuan. Expect 360 viewing decks, ancient myths and fascinating hikes.
World-class surf, hidden coves and exceptional diving.
This beautiful teardrop island, located 196 kilometers southeast of Tacloban, is a haven for mariners and water-sport enthusiasts of all stripes. Thrilling surf, breathtaking dives, and an unforgettable deep-blue lagoon give it the air of a genuine and forgotten paradise. It was voted the Best Island in the World, if you need any more convincing.
