A 7-day Guided All-encompassing, Multi-active Adventure in Taiwan

Taiwan is often dubbed the Hawaii of Asia, both for its dramatic landscape and its pleasant tropical climate, which makes it perfect for those seeking an outdoor escape. Our multi-active adventure unfolds in Taiwan's vibrant deep south, offering year-round sun-soaked experiences.

Your journey begins in the laid-back regional capital of Kaohsiung, the island’s second-largest city. We’ll wander historic Cijin Island and Stand-up paddle (SUP) on atmospheric Lotus Lake, then indulge in the flavors of the bustling night market for a true taste of Kaohsiung's vibrant culture.

Hopping on our bikes we'll venture into Taiwan's 'Banana Belt' as we cycle through the idyllic backroads of Meinong, culminating in a jaw-dropping visit to Foguangshan Monastery, home to a monumental Buddha statue (one of the world's largest) that will leave you in awe.

Leaving the city behind, our journey takes us through the lush jungles of the Hengchun Peninsula, offering a thrilling ride down to the revitalizing hot springs in the Paiwan village of Damei, where we'll rest for the night.

Kenting, our base for the final days, invites us to enjoy its beachside allure, complete with shops, cafés, restaurants, and a vibrant night market. Prepare for a range of activities including, ocean-side cycling, swimming and snorkeling in crystal clear waters, river kayaking, and hiking through the enchanting coral passageways of Kenting National Park.

Food is, as always with Grasshopper Adventures, a highlight of the journey, and we’ll try some of the best culinary highlights that Taiwan has to offer, such as dumplings, night market snacks, traditional indigenous fare, super fresh sashimi, and, of course, plenty of delicious tropical fruit!

This multi-active adventure is all about soaking up the best of Taiwan's south, from the lively city scenes to the serene mountain landscapes and the stunning beauty of the sea.
