Off the Beaten Path in PeruAlpamayo Circuit TrekView Trip Details

With its jungle-clad mountains, white sand beaches and dazzling turquoise waters, the Philippines is a tropical fantasy. With more than 7,000 islands to choose from, there's a staggering diversity of landscapes and experiences on offer in this sublime archipelago.

The Philippines is spectacular, sun-drenched and affordable. The culture is unique and fascinating, the people are famously friendly and cheerful, and the network of airports and ferry services makes island hopping simple. From beach bums to serious outdoor adventurers, you'd be hard-pressed to find a more rewarding holiday destination.

Here you can bliss out on palm-fringed beaches, dive coral reefs and kayak through the azure waters of ragged coastlines dotted with limestone islands. Cycle through lush backcountry, raft down white water rapids and hike to thundering waterfalls.

Walk beside towering volcanoes and lush rice paddies, trek through the majestic undulations of the Chocolate Hills, and explore the stunning flora and fauna of pristine rainforest.

Engage with rich local cultures and support sustainable tourism through homestay in timeless indigenous villages, and be charmed by the colour, culture and cuisine of vibrant Davao City.

Join World Expeditions on an exciting eco-adventure to discover the magic of this unspoiled gem of Southeast Asia!
