Countryside Wonders Of Bohol Islands
Your Bohol Island journey won’t be complete without visiting its spectacular marvels. Bohol Island is the home to the famous Chocolate Hills, the smallest primate in the Philippines (Tarsiers), some of the most magnificent beaches, and so much more! After leaving Panglao Island, we’ll visit a boutique salt-making workshop that has been making salt in a traditional manner unique to Bohol for generations and learn about local livelihoods and traditions. We’ll then continue to the Chocolate Hills before it gets packed with tourists for the best available view of the 1,776 almost identical hills. Alternatively, you can also choose to see the hills via a thrilling ATV ride! After visiting the Chocolate Hills, we’ll drive to the famous Tarsier Conservation Area through the Bilar’s Man-made Forest. We’ll then have a Stand-Up Paddleboard (SUP) activity on the Loboc River. Finally, just before sunset, we’ll have a quick visit to Baclayon Church, one of the oldest churches in the Philippines made out of coral stones and egg whites, before heading back to Panglao.

What if I’m scared or don’t want to do the SUP activity?
It’s pretty easy and very fun so we encourage you to try it! You can also have a guide to assist for about 50 pesos for a sleeker ride. However, if you still prefer not to, you can take a sitting kayak instead, or even book a short boat ride (good for two).
Can we take pictures or pet the Tarsiers?
No flash photography and it’s a big no to touch or even make a noise during the tour.
How long is the ATV ride?
The ATV ride in this tour goes for 30 minutes. Even though longer routes are available, we won’t have enough time to enjoy them due to our itinerary’s time restrictions. However, we can assure you that 30 minutes is enough to enjoy and get a complete Bohol Chocolate Hills ATV experience.
What is the difficulty level of the ATV ride?
Easy, please bring extra clothes as it is very muddy when it’s raining.
