What you can expect

All around the world, people are seeing fewer and fewer fireflies with the passing of time. Aside from increasing loss of habitat, light pollution has also been attributed as a factor messing with the twinkling insects’ breeding patterns. Our eco-tourism partner in Puerto Princesa, Palawan initiated this Firefly Watching tour and cruise along Iwahig River to give eco-conscious visitors the chance to appreciate their glow amidst their natural habitat.
