Highly recommended

The boat ride and hike was pleasant, really easy for beginners. Our guide, Jackie, is very experienced and was telling us about the area. There were stalls selling fresh coconuts which was a good way to refresh after an hour of hiking.

What to expect

Trek through the stunning landscapes of the Philippines to the world’s smallest active volcano - Taal Volcano which is also the second most active volcano in the Philippines with 33 documented eruptions. The adventure starts bright and early in the morning as you meet up with your tour group in Manila before heading to Batangas, where you'll hop on a boat to the island volcano. Upon arrival to Taal, begin your trek to the viewing deck from where you can see the crater. Don’t worry: the one hour hike is relaxing and fit for trekkers of all ages and physical abilities. Watch steam rise from the ground, explore the area around the crater and enjoy views of the caldera and the lake below. You can also ask your guide for instructions on how to get to the crater itself - and even go in for a swim before heading back down! Right before noon, you'll ride the boat back to the lakeside town of Talisay for a delightful lunch in the area at your own expense before the return trip to Manila.
