What to expect

If you ask Filipinos what they think is the most beautiful destination in the country, the answer won’t be any of their iconic beaches. Instead, most locals will dreamily talk about Batanes - the northernmost province in the archipelago. Discover why natives prefer the quiet beauty of the island region over everything else with this tour of North Batan! Explore the other half of Batan Island with visits to the area's breathtaking attractions. Check out Mt. Carmel Church first and fall in love with this stone chapel, which overlooks Mt. Iraya and the Pacific Ocean from its hilltop spot. Feast your eyes on another panoramic view of the island's landscape, this time at PAGASA Tukon Radar. Spot Fundacion Pacita from a distance, your next stop after the weather station. Venture farther into the hills and see vast grasslands from Basco Idjang Viewing. Learn how Batanes was occupied during the Japanese while at the viewpoint and explore the Dipnaysupuan Japanese Tunnel during your stay. Rest for a quick minute at Valugan Boulder Beach where rough waves meet the boulders of all sizes. Head to Basco Town Proper for a city tour and get to visit the Provincial Capitol and Cathedral of Santo Domingo de Guzman. Travel back to the hillside of the island, where the endless folds of Vayang Rolling Hills and Naidi Hills soak in the day's remaining sunlight. End the tour with a sunset viewing at Basco Lighthouse.
