So much fun swimming. My friends and I did the River & Valleys tour and had a wonderful time on a hot day. Excellent fun with an excellent tour company.

Our group of 5 friends could not have asked for a more fun day. Swimming, hiking, hot spring-ing! A great additiona to our Taiwan experience. Iris our guide was great. We all recommend Island Life.

We brought our 7 & 9 year old daughters on the Rivers & Valleys tour with Iris, not sure if they would enjoy it. But it was their favorite part of the trip so far! Booking with Jamella was easy and Iris our guide was funny and helpful. A real passion for Taiwan. We would recommend this day to anyone who likes nature and likes to swim.

Awesome day with Island Life Taiwan! We booked last minute and Island Life was great at accommodating us. We didn’t think we’d like the Butterfly Valley hot springs as we are more wild nature people, but it was definitely one of the highlights of our trip in Taiwan. Gorgeous natural surroundings. The rivers in the Mugua River Gorge were so blue, we’ve never seen anything like it. We definitely recommend Island Life Taiwan and this Rivers & Valleys tour to everyone.

Wild time in Hualien!
We did the Rivers & Valleys tour with Iris and what an amazing day it was. So nice to go out to a beautiful jungle river and we had it all to ourselves to swim and play. Very, very fun day! The falls and hot springs were also very nice. Recommend

Incredible day out with Island Life Taiwan! We were among the first to try their new Rivers &Valleys tour and had an absolute blast. Thanks Island Life!

Great times at the river!
Wow Taiwan is beautiful. Nothing experience like getting out to a river in the mountains with no one around! We even found some real jade in the creek we’re taking home with us. Memory of our trip! Thanks!
