Boracay Hiking and Whitewater
3 days/2 nights
Published Rate : US$532 + 12% VAT per person
Manila-Tibiao River (out of Boracay)-Manila
BLOG: Riding the Rapids of Tibiao River

Just a 1-1/2 hour drive through picturesque countryside is the Tibiao River, promising exciting thrills and spills as rafters and kayakers bounce over Class 3 rapids! Rafting and kayaking trips are conducted daily on the Tibiao, with daily pickups from Boracay.

Mixing negotiating rapids with walking trails is part of the portage experience to get to the best whitewater on the Tibiao River. Hiking may also be the object itself. Don't forget to try the fresh Tibiao River shrimp cooked with gabe and coconut milk when you reach the upland village of Pitak. If the water is high, you'll have a thrilling 15 km kayak down the Tibiao River.
