Witness your surroundings light up with hundreds and thousands of fireflies as you cruise along the peaceful Donsol River in Sorsogon in this firefly watching tour. If you’re looking for a relaxing activity to cap your day in Sorsogon, along with the best firefly watching Donsol rates, then this Sorsogon firefly watching activity is definitely a must-book.

You will be picked up by a tricycle within the municipality of Donsol and take you to the jump-off point of the Donsol firefly tour, where a boat will be waiting. Once you get geared up and settled on the boat, your guide will then paddle your way upstream from the river mouth. The 100-kilometer Donsol River is surrounded by mangrove forests and coconut trees. The warm water temperature and abundant vegetation in Donsol and Ogod Rivers (a branch of Donsol River) make a natural sanctuary for fireflies. 

The Donsol firefly watching activity starts when the evening sky dawns on the land. As the surroundings turn dark, take a look at the river and you’ll see the open-air brighten up with thousands of fireflies floating in and out of the trees and over the water. It’s a magical sight you shouldn’t miss.

The view grows even more mystical when you look down into the water and see it glowing, thanks to the planktons lighting up, as well.

You’re more than welcome to take pictures during the firefly river tour Donsol activity to keep it in memory, but make sure to not use flash photography so as not to scare the fireflies away. This activity will last for about two to three hours. After the firefly watching, you will be taken back to the jump-off point, where a tricycle will be waiting to bring you home to your hotel or resort within Donsol

Appreciate the fairytale-like luminescent view in Donsol River with this firefly watching activity. Check availability by choosing a date.
