Taal Volcano Tours and Activities

Taal Volcano
Located along the Pacific Ring of Fire, Taal Volcano is one of the most active volcanoes in the Philippines. Rising up from the center of Taal Lake and harboring its own crater lake and island, the unique setting—an island in a lake on an island in a lake—makes for an incredible sight.
 
The Basics
The journey to Taal Volcano is as much a part of the adventure as the views. Boats set out from Talisay on the shores of Taal Lake, and once on the island, it’s about a 40-minute hike or horse ride to the rim of the crater, where you’ll have a spectacular view over the crater lake and island. A full-day Taal Volcano tour from Manila typically includes round-trip transport and lunch.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • There is an entrance fee to visit the volcano.
  • Make sure to stick to the marked trails—Taal is an active volcano and there are geysers and steam vents dotted around the crater.
  • Bring plenty of water, comfortable shoes, and sun protection as it can get hot on the island.
 
How to Get There
Boats to Taal Volcano run from Talisay, around 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) southeast of Tagaytay city or a 30-minute journey by tricycle or jeepney. With limited public transport from Manila, the easiest way to visit is as part of a guided tour.
 
When to Get There
Taal Volcano is accessible year-round, but the most popular time to visit is during the dry season from November to April. Temperatures are highest during March and April, so hikers might want to avoid this period.
 
Hiking Taal Volcano
There are a number of hiking trails around the volcano island, the most popular being the Spanish Trail, which climbs to the very top. From there, enjoy views from the rim of Main Crater Lake to Vulcan Point, the tiny island at the center of the lake. To escape the crowds and the heat, try the Kenney Trail; it’s shaded by trees for much of the way, though the views aren't quite as impressive as those on the Spanish Trail.
