See the beauty of the Philippines’ famed Chocolate Hills in a different light as this hot air balloon tour takes you to an aerial escapade atop Bohol Island. Flying at a high altitude, you will be able to witness how the morning light touches the green landscape of the island, including its renowned mounts.
This ride is an excellent pick for the adventure enthusiasts who love to get their adrenaline up and kicking or for those looking for a unique romantic activity. This hot air balloon ride takes place before sunrise, so expect your driver to pick you up at your hotel at dawn. See to it that you are wearing comfy clothes and shoes on before departure as you might have to walk to the take-off site, where the trail can be a bit rocky and moist.
From your accommodation in Panglao or Tagbilaran, you will travel northeast straight to the town of Carmen. As soon as you reach the activity area, your group has to sign a disclaimer agreement first. Afterward, one by one, you will board the hot air balloon. The duration of your trip depends on the wind speed on that day. As the hot air balloon rises from the ground, be ready to stand in awe at the gorgeous sunrise and the 360-degree sweeping view of the nearby islands of Cebu, Mactan, and Bohol.
The flight continues until you are above the Chocolate Hills. Feast your eyes on these little mounds that extend as far as your eyes can go. While you appreciate these wonders, don’t let the chance of capturing these chocolate-kisses-like land formation in pictures escape you.
During the flight, bottled water will be given to you as well. After the flight lands, your group will be served with hot chocolate and snacks. You also get to have souvenir photos.
