Team Out of Town Blog Hub (www.outoftownblog.com) – The province of Quirino, in partnership with the Department of Tourism and the Tourism Promotions Board, is holding an online launch of its new tourism brand on November 4, 2021. The launch will be conducted through the official Facebook page of the province at 6:00 PM, and it will also be featured on the ANC channel on November 6, 2021.
Quirino, a small highland province tucked on the southeastern corner of Cagayan Valley, is a veritable nature preserve endowed with several tourist attractions. Nestled in the shadows of the Sierra Mama mountain range, it is located in the Upper Cagayan River Basin.
Thus, it is surrounded by majestic mountains, crisscrossed by pristine rivers, and dotted by over 200 waterfalls, including a seven-tier wonder.
One of the province’s popular tourist attractions, for instance, is the Governor’s Rapids in the town of Maddela. Forming part of a tributary of the Cagayan River, it has become favorite swimming, kayaking, and canoeing spot for visitors. During the rainy season, it becomes an ideal site for whitewater rafting.
Quirino is one of the few remaining provinces that still have virgin forests. It also has lush woodlands home to a wide array of indigenous flora and fauna that make it an unspoiled wonderland for nature lovers and adventure seekers. In addition, the province boasts of scenic mountain trails, cave networks that have been attracting spelunkers, and grassy rolling hills that are perfect for camping.
Currently, Quirino is still closed to visitors in line with the travel restrictions imposed by the national government to control the spread of COVID-19. The province, however, is already preparing for its re-opening. And the upcoming digital launch of its new tourism brand is, in fact, part of this initiative.
According to Governor Dakila Carlo “Dax” Cua, Quirino’s rebranding is itself a key step in promoting the province as a top-notch tourism destination that has remained largely undiscovered. “Our new brand, which we will unveil on November 4, will herald the whole package of wonder and fun that Quirino offers to visitors,” he said. “I’m inviting all of you to join us for this unveiling so you can discover Quirino!”
