Explore the tourist attractions of North Batan, Batanes with this half-day private tour that will take you to rolling hills, a beach, a Japanese tunnel, a picturesque lighthouse, and other stops. To ensure a hassle-free experience, this tour already comes with the assistance of a DOT-accredited guide, environmental and registration fees, and pick-up and drop-off from your accommodations in Batanes.

You will be picked up from your Batanes accommodation at 12 PM. After being picked up, you’ll kick off your tour with a welcome lunch. Once you’ve had your fill, you’ll head to Tukon Chapel in Basco. Also known as Mt. Carmel Chapel, the structure is made of stone and was designed with Ivatan stone houses as an inspiration. Its unique look, coupled with its location atop a hill, make it a favorite location for Batanes weddings.

Next, you’ll head to the PAGASA Tukon Radar Station. During your visit to the northernmost Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration station, you’ll see different equipment that helps measure and predict the weather. But the best part about this station is its 360-degree view of Batan Island.

You’ll then head to the Japanese Tunnel that Japanese soldiers used as shelter during World War II. After that, you’ll visit Valugan Boulder Beach. As its name suggests, this beach is not home to powdery sand but instead is filled with smooth round boulders. Take in the stunning view before heading to Casa Real and Immaculate Conception Cathedral.

Your next stop is Basco Lighthouse, a picturesque six-story structure on top of Naidi Hill. On the fifth floor is a viewing deck that can give you beautiful views of the island of Batan. You’ll then head to your last stop, the Vayang Rolling Hills. The hills will not only give you breathtaking views of its verdant slopes but also of the waters surrounding Batan Island. Enjoy the fresh air and the cool temperatures before heading back to your accommodations with your driver.

Enjoy an afternoon of touring Batanes’ northern attractions when you book this private tour. Check the availability by choosing a date.
