Add some thrill to your vacation by trekking to see Vulcan Point, an island in a lake on an island in a lake on an island. It sounds confusing, but it’s what you can see in the crater of Taal Volcano in this private day trip from Manila. For nature enthusiasts who want to combine sightseeing and adventure, this guided hike is one of the best things to do in the Philippines.

You will be picked up from your accommodation in Manila and taken to Tagaytay ridge, where you will meet your private tour guide. You will then go to the port where you can board a motorized outrigger boat that will take you to Taal Volcano in the middle of Lake Taal.

The hike starts on the island's shore and ends at the rim of the main Crater Lake. You can trek on foot or choose to ride a pony on your way up. Those who want to level up their hike can go through the route with the hardened black lava to an easy incline and down to the lake to get a close-up view.

Upon arriving, you will see a picturesque view of the Taal Crater, a beautiful aftermath of the prehistoric eruptions of the country’s second most active volcano. In the middle of the crater is Vulcan Point, the world’s biggest island within a lake. Don’t forget to take pictures!

Stay for a while to truly enjoy the view from the top. Afterwards, you will hike your way back to the shore where your outrigger boat is waiting. You will head back to the port just in time to enjoy lunch. On your way back to Manila, you will make a stop at the Jeepney Factory where you can see where jeepneys are made, as well as the historic Las Piñas Bamboo Organ.
