Discover the Beauty of Taiwan By Hiking, Biking & Kayaking
Located off the southeast coast of China, the island nation of Taiwan is full of adventure travel potential. From the tropical beaches to the rugged peaks, a Taiwan trip promises enough active adventures to keep you busy for many days. Visit Taiwan to explore the natural beauty of Taroko National Park, which is perfect for beginning hikers, or tackle an advanced hike at Jade Mountain (Yu Shan), the fourth highest island mountain in the world.
For the ultimate adventure travel experience, embark on a Taiwan tour by bicycle to see the beautiful scenery while also getting a work out. Whether you want to explore the coast, mountains or jungle, cycling is the perfect addition to a Taiwan trip as it allows you to see the diverse landscape and experience the culture firsthand. While much of the country is bicycle-friendly, the rural eastern coast is a popular route that includes the incredible Taroko Gorge and East Rift Valley.
If you’re interested in an aquatic adventure trip, try one of the water-related Taiwan attractions, such as scuba diving or kayaking. The coral reefs at Green Island off the southeast coast of Taiwan feature over 300 species of fish and 205 kinds of coral, making it a prime location for both scuba diving and snorkeling while the over 2,600-foot Qingshui Cliffs in Taroko National Park provides a stunning backdrop for kayaking in in the Pacific Ocean. You could also give river trekking a try for an assortment of active adventures, including hiking, bouldering and climbing in the rural river canyons of Hualien.
