What To Expect

Planning a trip to Batanes? Join this culturally immersive 2 day tour around two of its main islands! Kick off your holiday with a ride to the southern parts of Batan Island, where the winding roads lead to three major towns: Ivana, Mahatao, and Uyugan. Be surprised by each town's set of prided attractions - sights that go from cliffside viewpoints and vast grasslands, to ancient ruins and local must-sees. On your second day, cross the raging waters of the Pacific Ocean to Sabtang Island's white sand coastline. Enjoy the peaceful ambiance of the province and the unhurried attitude of the locals as you visit the traditional houses of Sinakan and Savidug. Enjoy your itinerary's scenic route and get to stop by emerald hills, pristine beaches, and historic sites. Hop on a boat back to Batan Island after lunch and find yourself in North Batan. Visit ruins of Catholic churches and more of Batanes' iconic plains and mountain ranges. Extend your sightseeing trip with a tour of Basco's town proper. End the day with a gorgeous view of the sunset at Basco Lighthouse.
