Island Life
Island Hopping in the Philippines

Tour Description: Guided

With 7,107 islands to choose from in the Philippines, it's hard to decide where to where to start. The Visayas group of islands offers a diverse sampling that are perfect to explore by bicycle.

From the long and narrow island of Cebu we ferry to Bohol and the famous Chocolate Hills, to volcanic Camiguin, mysterious Siquijor and on to Negros before returning to Cebu. We explore five islands and take six ferries to do so!

We meet in Cebu to take advantage of the international airport but the next day we are off to Bohol by boat. We ride directly from the dock to explore this unique island that is home to the big-eyed tarsiers, terraced ride fields and languid rivers.

Our next isle is full of hot, cold and soda springs thanks to the many volcanoes that are also responsible for the black sand beaches and a sunken cemetery. The lush and green interior contrasts nicely with the azure blue of the surrounding waters. We spend three nights here to fully enjoy Camiguin before heading back to Bohol.Here we explore the white sands of Alona Beach on the southern tip of Panglao Island.

Our next destination is Siquijor Island which is known for its mystic healers who live in the highlands. We next make our way back to Cebu with a brief ride on the island of Negros on the way there. We ride up the coast of Cebu before crossing the hilly core to the east coast and transferring to Cebu City.

By island hopping you'll notice how different the islands are, despite being so close to each other, but one thing they do have in common are the exuberant, fun loving and easygoing Filipinos, and you'll no doubt sing a song or two with them! along the way!

A note about weather: Climate in the Philippines is hot, humid, and tropical. The average yearly temperature ranges from 25°C/ 78°F to 32°C/90°F. Filipinos generally recognize three seasons: Summer from March to May (the hottest); Rainy Season from July to November (the wettest and also typhoon season) and Cold Season from December to February (moderate for those from temperate countries).
