All About this Tour

By island hopping you'll notice how different the islands are, despite being so close to each other, but one thing they do have in common are the exuberant, fun-loving, and easygoing Filipinos, and you'll no doubt sing a song or two with them along the way!

Itinerary

Day 1

After airport transfer and check-in, we have a trip meeting and dinner.

Day 2

A morning boat ride takes us to Bohol. We ride on a quiet dirt road to the Tarsier Sanctuary for a visit. Then we are back on the bikes and on to the picturesque Loboc River.

Day 3

We start the day with an uphill climb before the terrain evens out, until the end of the day, when there is yet one more uphill to our hotel. We ride through a mahogany forest, visit a butterfly garden, and the world-famous Chocolate Hills.

Day 4

A tough start to the day with a 6-km climb, followed by a great downhill of 20 km! We then cycle on a coastal road to our beachside resort in Anda.

Day 5

Rest or explore the beautiful beaches of Anda. Or visit Lamanok Island with its incredible cave paintings.

Day 6

We cycle through rural Bohol, and after 50 km, we transfer to Bilar. Back on the bikes, we cycle to Inambacan Falls where we can have a dip in the crystal clear pools.

Day 7

Another day of great coastal riding. We stop at one of the oldest stone churches in the Philippines and end the day at yet another stunning beach, this one with white sands.

Day 8

We ferry to Siquijor and ride to take a dip at the refreshing Cambugahay Waterfalls.

Day 9

We cycle the coastal road around Siquijor, stopping along the way at St. Isidore Convent, known as the biggest convent in Asia.

Day 10

Cycle Siquijor's “Highlands” to visit the heart of this mysterious island. Some serious climbs await but once we reach Mount Bandilaan National Park, we have a spectacular downhill.

Day 11

After a short undulating ride, we ferry to Dumaguete on Negros Island and cycle around 11 km. Then we take another short ferry ride across the Tañon Strait, known for whale and dolphin watching, to Cebu, and bike along the coast to Moalboal.

Day 12

We cross to CarCar City, where we hop into our support vehicle back to our hotel in Cebu for our farewell dinner.

What a beautiful lush green scenery to travel trough by bike! Even in the rainy season no problem to discover these islands. We had a really good time with our guide Diego. He is such a good rider, funny, his english is excellent and he has a very good local knowledge. He vas very flexible and could adapte the program at our wishes (we have been only two of us!). Thanks a lot, we will come again, Elisabeth and Hans Peter from Switzerland

This tour was very well planned and managed. The resorts and hotels were all excellent and very romantic and peaceful. The cycling was no problem but of course the heat and sun made some of the days strenuous.

I personally prefer shorter tours and there is a 'rest day' and a 'ride around an Island' which could easily be missed out if the tour is shortened. I understand that most people travel a long way to join the tours and need more time to make the journey worthwhile.

All things considered, I rate this tour highly and would recommend it to other SpiceRoads cyclists. The Philippine Islands visited are very beautiful and the local life very picturesque.
