Taroko Gorge By Scooter!
Don’t just see Taroko, experience it with us.
Our fun filled, all day scooter adventure seeks to avoid the crowds while taking you to the most spectacular parts of Taiwan’s premier National Park. From the Swallow Grotto to the Baiyang Waterfalls and everywhere in between, Island Life has you covered.
We know our tour heads out from Hualien City earlier than others, but it’s to avoid the tour buses and late afternoon cloud cover. Trust us, it’s worth it! As with all our tours, lunch and Hualien City hotel pick up are included!
We will spend the day visiting many of Taroko’s best sites, cruising down scenic roads and walking on some spectacular trails. In order to have a fun and flexible day, the exact itinerary for our day can vary. But we promise to try and show you as much of the best of Taroko in one day as we can!
Some possible stops include:
Baiyang Waterfalls Trail
Eternal Springs Shrine
Yuewang Suspension Bridge
And other secret spots!
Lunch and tons of fun are included!
Please note that Island Life DOES NOT provide scooters for this tour. They can be rented upon your arrival in Hualien City.
You will need to rent your own and have the appropriate skills and licenses. Taroko Gorge has very narrow roads in places and other drivers in Taiwan can be unpredictable. While our tour leader will keep the pace and try to maintain safety for the group, it is the responsibility of the driver to follow all traffic laws and drive appropriately. HELMETS ARE REQUIRED.
Driving a scooter through Taroko is an awesome experience, but please don’t sign up for this tour if you don’t know how to drive a scooter well. Thanks!
