VOLCANO TOUR ITINERARY: Please note this is a rough
itinerary and the times listed below are
approximate. Hiking time will depend on your fitness
Travel Center provides a private pick up and drop off from your house or hotel in Metro Manila. The journey to Taal Volcano in our air-conditioned minibus takes approximately 2 hours. We encourage our clients to have a quick stop along the way for a coffee break at Starbucks. Stop at the look out point on Tagaytay Ridge to get a spectacular view of the lake and
Volcano Island. For more photographs of our minivans please click here.
Travel Center arrives at Taal Yacht Club on the shores of the picturesque Lake Taal. Our driver will register your names with the authorities and organise to transfer you to a waiting
motorised outrigger to take you across to Volcano Island. There is an opportunity for a toilet break and you can keep all your valuables locked inside the minivan
Depart for Talisay in a motorised outrigger. The journey across the lake can sometimes be bumpy if their is a strong wind - however it is lots of fun and a great adventure. You will pass by local fisherman and fish farms along the way.
After a short boat ride across the lake you will reach the start of the trekking point. The hike is relatively easy , walking uphill with panoramic views of the mountains and lake. The hike will take roughly 30 minutes each way.
Your first sighting of the Crater lake is absolutely stunning, you will immediately notice the bright turquoise waters which are surrounded by the volcano’s huge crater walls.
Begin trek back down the mountain and then start the motorised outrigger trip back across the lake.
back at Taal
Yacht Club - it is a great place to relax under a Cabana with views
of the lake. You have the option of doing some
water sports for an additional fee which is lots of
fun. Take in
your final views and begin the return journey back to Manila. Our estimated time of arrival in Metro Manila is 4.00 pm depending on activities and relaxation time
