Taiwan is a superb destination for the active traveller in search of the great outdoors. This itinerary showcases some of the island's stunning natural beauty and includes a number of varied trekking and cycling excursions as you travel from north to south. Start by exploring the vibrant capital Taipei and cycling around the north coast region of Danshui before relaxing in a hot spring bath at Beitou. Explore the Yangmingshan National Park, the traditional mining town of Jiufen and the crazy rock formations in the Yehliu Geopark before heading down the east coast to the famous Taroko Gorge National Park. Here and along the cross island highway at Cingjing, you will enjoy some scenic trekking before reaching Sun Moon Lake. Spend a day cycling around this stunning lake, recognised as one of the most picturesque places to ride in the world before continuing to Alishan forest, home to Mt Alishan and no less stunning! After cultural exploration in the atmospheric city of Tainan and more scenic trekking at Maolin, relax for 3 nights on the beach in Kenting before flying home from the nearby city of Kaohsiung.
