An extension of our “4 Days / 3 Nights Mountain Province Tour “this SHARED 5 day tour departs only every Friday and is for those who especially enjoy exploring by road. You will make a full loop including visiting the capital of Cordillera region, Baguio City, experiencing both winding Canon Road and the scenic Halsema Highway (called the “Mountain Trail of Benguet”) and their wonderful photo opportunities.

Should you rather wish to see the old Hispanic towns of Vigan & Laoag, and do a half day island tour at “The Hundred Islands” on your way back to Manila instead of seeing Baguio and experiencing Canon Road and Halsema Highway, we recommend you look at our 7 Days / 6 Nights “Historic Adventuew round Northern Luzon Tour”, be it private or shared basis.
