Find out for yourself why Batanes is the number one dream destination in the Philippines. This tour around North and South Batan islands will take you to some of the most stunning landscapes in the country. This tour is for anyone who wants to enjoy a day of quality sightseeing and marvel at postcard-perfect views at every turn.

After being picked up from your accommodation, your air-conditioned van will conveniently drop you off at the vicinity of each site. Sit back and enjoy the view in comfort as you travel around the coastal winding roads of Batan Island.

You’ll visit unique and historic sights all over the island including the century-old House of Dakay, a church that contains a library of blank books, and the Honesty Cafe where visitors are expected to pay by honesty system. Pose for photos along with the road at Alapad Rock Formations, with its captivating view of natural rocks weathered by the elements.

Soak in the view at Rakuh-A-Payaman, one of the Batanes’ most iconic and photographed sightseeing destinations. Popularly called “Marlboro Country” by tourists, this idyllic communal pastureland where cows and carabaos graze offers a view of rolling hills, a cove and the wide open sea framed by cliffsides.

After a lunch of local dishes, you’ll visit the quaint Mt. Carmel Chapel, a tiny church on a hill that’s sought-after for destination weddings. While in here, pray and contemplate before you proceed to your next destination.

Crouch down and walk through a Japanese Tunnel before making your way to Valugan Boulder Beach. This rocky bay offers a view of the Pacific Ocean and Mt. Iraya on the side, with a long stretch of boulders formed from during the volcano’s eruption in 400 AD.

You’ll end your tour at two of the most popular spots in the capital of Basco. Take a short trek from Vayang Rolling Hills to get a stunning view of the landscape overlooking the sea. Then, climb up the 66-feet high Naidi Lighthouse for an amazing vantage point of the whole town of Basco as the sun sets.
