    The Lanka Challenge was an unforgettable holiday. A perfect mix between adventure and relaxation. Large Minority does create unique experiences.

    I did the Lanka Challenge in 2013 and the Philippines Challenge in 2016 and honestly, they will likely be two of the best trips I ever do. The Large Minority way of travel is unique in that it actually enables you to have real-life, proper adventures.... Show more

Frequently Asked Questions

    • Do I need vaccinations before I come to the Philippines?

      This is completely up to you, but generally it’s a good idea to be up-to-date with standard vaccinations like Tetanus, Hap A and Polio. Other jabs to consider are Tuberculosis, Meningitis and Typhoid. Anti-malaria meds might also be a good idea. If in doubt, check with your GP.

    • What’s the weather going to be like?

      Pretty good, if warm is good that is. It’s really hot between March and May, a little bit cooler from November to February and it’s the rainy season from June to October. But a good traveler knows that off-peak season means lower rates in airfares, and maybe the beer too! Just be forewarned that the months between July and September have the odd typhoon.

    • What languages are spoken in the Philippines?

      There are two national languages spoken in the Philippines; Tagalog and English. With that said, don’t get us started on the over 100 different island dialects. Don’t worry too much – your crew will all speak English.

    • Will there be internet connection throughout this sailing adventure?

      Nope. Not surprisingly open water in The Philippines doesn’t have a super sweet WiFi connection. So put those phones away unplug and enjoy it! If you can’t, the start and finish hotels do have internet and there will be a couple along the way that will let you check-in.

    • Is it expensive in the Philippines?

      Not really. Some luxuries can be a little pricey (hence the ‘luxury’ bit), but for the most part it’s super reasonable. Food for lunch will typically cost you 5-10 dollars and beer generally under a buck or 2.

    • Can the route change?

      We try to stick to the original route and accommodation as much as possible, but they can be subject to change from time to time.

    • Who needs a visa to the Philippines?

      Ah visas, our old nemesis. You can find all the info and apply online:

    • Do I need to bring my own camping gear?

      Nope. We’ll provide the sleeping bags and the marshmallows as necessary. However, it might be good to bring a torch.

    • When do registrations close?

      30 days before the Challenge starts.

    • Once I register what other docs do I need?

      Once your registration is locked and loaded, we’ll email you and ask you to provide us with:

      A passport copy for each team member (we promise not to laugh at the photos).
      Your arrival and departure details.

      We’ll double check all these docs on the ground, so please bring copies with you.
