Discover more of the historical background of Ilocos Norte province in this shared day tour. Taking a whole day to complete, this tour is perfect for families and group of friends who want to know the history behind the iconic sites of the province.
After being picked up from your hotel, you will go to the city of Laoag where you will experience the Laoag City Rolling Tour. You will be able to see the Ilocos Norte Capitol, Tobacco Monopoly, Aurora Park, and Marcos Hall of Justice.
You will also be directed to the St. William’s Cathedral and the famous Sinking Bell Tower after which may be 85 meters away from each other but are closely connected in history. The tower was said to be continuously sinking as years pass by because it was built on sandy ground.
From Laoag City, you will be driven to Burgos to see the Cape Bojeador Lighthouse, also known as the Burgos Lighthouse. This lighthouse was declared by the Philippine government as National Historical Landmark and a National Cultural Treasure — definitely something you should not miss.
Another gem from Burgos that you will head on next is the Kapurpurawan Formation which is best known for its limestone formations. You will then proceed to a wind farm where the Bangui Windmills are placed. These windmills greatly help the surrounding areas generate wind energy.
From the wind farm, you will be headed to Pagudpud to have your lunch first so that you will have ample energy to spare for the other half of the day which will be equally fun. After a short tour in Pagudpud, you'll be stopping at the Patapat Viaduct first before going back to Laoag — a bridge that is elevated more than thirty meters above sea level. For an additional fee, you can also opt to experience the Ilocos Sand Dunes, ride a 4x4, or play in the sand bed.
