If u want some adventure in the North then, just give this a try. 4x4WD cost Php2,500 good for 5passengers. It has 3 stations to take some photos. After that, u can try their unlimited sand boarding.

Great experience riding a 4 wheel around the sand dunes, enjoyed the spectacular view of Ilocos. If you are in Ilocos, is an activity that you must try.

The 2500 Php fee is a bit too steep, but the experience is worth it. The man driving the 4x4 really knew how to make us scream. He would speed up and slow down, and he would even make the 4x4 tilt to one side....More

Hi. No need for an agent. Just go straight to that place and there are people who are assigned on the entrance with the corresponding price. Just pay them and they will arrange the activity for you

Minimum wax 4000 pesos for the smallest ATV . It all depends on how long you want to do the ride. There are bigger rides for more.

We planned our own itinerary when we went to Ilocos last November,however Its best if you hire a local transport & tour operator. the distance between tour sites are quite far so commmuting is not recommended.
