The Beautiful Island of Taiwan: Your Way

Choose your dates

13 days | Taiwan | Private Journey

It’s easy to see why Taiwan was called Ilha Formosa, “the beautiful island”, by early Portuguese sailors. This small island offers spectacular mountain scenery, an impressive geographic and ecological diversity and a unique mélange of cultural influences. With its small size and excellent roadways and facilities, Taiwan is easy to discover while remaining relatively unknown to mainstream tourism.

In the company of Taiwan’s top nature guide, we’ve crafted this trip to visit the myriad wildlife highlights of the island. Birders will be rewarded with an impressive array of endemic species, including exotic pheasants, Taiwan Hill Partridge and the Taiwan Blue Magpie, and a good number of East Asian migrants. The varied forest ecosystems are home to a huge diversity of plants, mammals, birds, amphibians and insects.
 
Our trip takes us hiking in Dasyueshan National Forest to see blossoming rhododendrons, Mikado Pheasant and Rock Monkey, and to the San Xin Temple with its exquisite bird carvings. We’ll travel to the wave-swept coast of eastern Taiwan and to the fishing stations of Tainan City. We’ll meet the Taroko and Bunun aboriginal peoples, who maintain their distinctive cultural heritage. Join us on this fascinating natural history discovery with a taste of Taiwan’s cultural heritage.
