The island of Luzon offers visitors a hidden paradise, much of it seldom seen by travelers who see the Philippines purely in terms of beaches and southern islands. Travelers on the “mountain loop” usually see the rice terraces of Banaue and the caves in Sagada. Sagada also has the “hanging coffins” that have been a standard item on the backpacker route for decades, but few travelers have looked beyond them. When we look, we find vast expanses of mountains and forests. The tribal peoples there are deeply committed to traditional ways. There are towering waterfalls and rushing rivers, rice terraces and remote villages. Beyond the mountains new destinations are emerging, offering jungle treks, river floats… and beaches that rival any in the Philippines, or the world.
Improvements in infrastructure and the resolution of political conflicts have opened up large expanses of North Luzon to travelers, especially those willing to step off the beaten track. All it takes is knowledge and a sense of adventure. The knowledge comes from us. If you have the sense of adventure, contact us and see what Luzon has to offer. We think you’ll be in for a very happy surprise.
