Taal Volcano Tours

In the middle of the Philippines’ third-largest lake lies Taal Volcano, one of the most active volcanoes in the country. Sitting on the Pacific Ring of Fire, Taal has had 33 eruptions in its history; even the lake it sits on was created by volcanic eruptions more than 500,000 years ago. To get to the volcano, head to the little town of Talisay 2.5 miles (4 km) southeast of Tagaytay, where you can catch a boat. The 30-minute ride across sulfuric Taal Lake will bring you to the shores of Volcano Island from where you can hike or ride a horse to the top of Taal Volcano. Horse rides are popular because of the heat, but if you’d rather hike, there are many routes around the volcano, the most popular being the Spanish Trail, which goes to the very top. From here, enjoy views from the rim of Main Crater Lake to Vulcan Point, the world’s largest island that’s in a lake on an island in a lake on an island. Yes, you read that right!

If you’d rather take a more peaceful path, try the Kenney Trail; it’s shaded by trees for much of the way, though the views aren't quite as spectacular as those on the Spanish Trail. On the island there’s a small restaurant and plenty of vendors selling drinks.

Practical Info

Thirty-one miles south of the capital city of Manila, Tagaytay is best reached via regular BSC buses from Giselle's Park Place. Bring plenty of water, a hat for shade and sunblock for your hike or horse ride.
