All set for new adventures 

DAVAO Region is truly the ultimate destination when it comes to adventure. From conquering Mt Apo to exploring coral gardens in Samal, from exploring the caves in Matanao to defying your fears by canyoneering in Kapalong, there’s no shortage of exciting activities to try. And now, with the launch of the Department of Tourism Davao Region’s Davao Adventure Challenge, the adventure options are even more enticing.
“Together, we will rediscover Davao Region’s breathtaking landscapes, vibrant cultures, and exciting adventure pursuits in this year-long tourism campaign,” said DOT Xl regional director Tanya Rabat Tan during its launch last April 28 at the Mindanao Tourism Expo in Cagayan de Oro City.

The Davao Adventure Challenge is a year-long tourism campaign that aims to showcase the diverse menu of adventure activities and destinations in Davao while positioning the region as The Philippines’ premier adventure tourism destination. Apart from attracting adventure seekers from around the world, the campaign also endeavors to promote some of the region’s lesser-known but equally exciting adventure sites.
