Night Kayaking Mangrove Eco-adventure Tour (Lincod, Maribojoc)
Since the trip starts during sunset, you can witness how the river changes its colors from vibrant shades of greens and blues, into the romantic colors of dusk. Then, you’ll be treated to the magnificent sight of fireflies and twinkling stars. A home-cooked Filipino dinner will also be served after the kayak activity.
At 60 feet-high, Can-umantad Falls is considered to be the tallest waterfall in Bohol. It’s ideal for picnics, swimming, and other fun activities with family. Going here can be quite a challenge with its hidden lush forest, enormous boulders, and rough terrain but the view will make it worth it!
Cadapdapan Rice Terraces (Candijay)
Most people think that the only way to see the grandeur of the rice terraces is by going to Banaue. But have you been to Candijay? The simple town with extravagant beauty has the picturesque rice terraces covering a few hectares of the mountain slopes of Barangay Cadapdapan. Just look at that view!
Mountain Bike Tours
There are three different tours to choose from: Tour A, which is the beginner tour, will take you next to the river through the local villages of Loboc and Loay area; Tour B, an intermediate tour, will follow the river through rice fields and mountain terrain with a stop-over at the black smith station; and Tour C, the more expert trail, will take you to the top of Loboc Hills.
This 25-foot beauty got its name from the local dialect aso, meaning smoke. While you’re here, you can enjoy the relaxing sound of chirping birds blended with the rush of flowing waters – the perfect place when you want to relax and unwind while communing with nature. The walk going to the falls won’t be a problem. While it has a steep slope, the concrete steps and sturdy handrails make it easier than it expected.
