The Better Taroko Gorge Tour

Don’t just see Taroko, experience it with us.

Here at Island Life, we start our tour a bit earlier than everyone else and structure it to REALLY avoid the crowds. We are among the first to Swallow Grotto and other Taroko highlights almost every day, allowing you to enjoy them in peace. The way nature intended!

Throughout the day, our fun filled tour takes you to many of Taroko’s best sites, from the Swallow Grotto to the Baiyang Waterfalls and everywhere in between. We’ll walk on some spectacular trails and do our best to spend as little time in the vehicle as possible.

Though we promise to try and show you as much of the best of Taroko in one day as we can, in order to have a fun and flexible day, the exact itinerary for our tour can vary.  

Some likely stops include:

  • Swallow Grotto
  • Baiyang Waterfalls Trail
  • Luishui Trail
  • Shakadang Trail
  • Cimhu Bridge
  • Qingshui Cliffs
  • Eternal Springs Shrine
  • Changuang Temple
  • Yuewang Suspension Bridge
  • And other secret spots!

Did we mention that Lunch and tons of fun are included!
