Discover the dramatic scenery and diverse wildlife of the Philippines on this exhilarating 22-day tour. This tour is aimed at lovers of both nature and natural wonders. Venture across the islands, taking in the world’s smallest volcano at Taal, the chocolate hills of Bohol, and some of the greatest beaches in the world. You will be taken on fantastic bird-watching tours of Olango Wildlife Sanctuary and Rajah Sikatuna Park, observe the tiny Tarsier on Panglao Island, venture out to sea to spot whales and dolphins, and head to Donsol to dive with whalesharks.
