In Porac, Pampanga’s Alviera, unique facilities and activated spaces are opening up this month to offer lovers of the great outdoors a chance to explore the region’s local gems.
Short for “Explore Porac,” the estate is kicking off with its EXPLORAC campaign that offers visitors unique outdoor experiences for all ages in the 1,800-hectare estate of Alviera, one of the country’s largest integrated mixed-use estate by Ayala Land and Leonio Land.
Get your adrenaline pumping
Outdoor buffs will love the Sandbox, a 2-hectare, one-of-a-kind adventure park that caters all kinds of fun. Experience the 10-meter Giant Swing designed to launch visitors into a thrilling ride towards the sky, and the core-engaging Aerial Walk where groups can set a fun racing challenge with friends or family, or a personal challenge in endurance for solo visitors.
More exciting attractions are available at The Adventure Tower. Along with the Aerial Walk, The Sandbox facility features the country’s first roller coaster zipline, a Free Fall jump, and climbing and rappel walls.
The Sandbox also holds the Splash Tub, which offers 11 water-oriented obstacle courses, such as the Ball Traverse, the Over-and-Under, and the Wreckers that could challenge anyone’s balancing skills as they walk on the slippery platforms. Within the facility is a lounge pool with Instagram-worthy inflatables perfect for taking breaks after a tiring race or for simply taking selfies.
Seek adventure in nature
Alviera also has offerings for visitors who want to connect with the natural beauty of Pampanga. The Alviera Bike Trails, open to all, with scenic routes designed for trail and gravel bikes, promises to bring fun and adventure to cyclists of all ages and skill levels. This 5-kilometer trail consists of multi-terrain routes which vary from leisure routes to more intense cycling challenges, perfect for weekend ride-out sessions.
Motorists also have something to look forward to in Alviera. The estate now houses the KTM Off road Track, a 3-hectare motocross course that hosts off road events and offers training programs complete with a set of obstacle courses and facilities.
For adventurers who want to fully immerse themselves in the refreshing Porac environment, Alviera is set to soon open its inaugural camp site: W camp. The W Camp welcomes car campers, along with traditional campers and glampers upon request. The campsite features lush greenery, clear, open skies, and nearby streams for a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of the city. Mark your calendars for the site’s first family camping activity on April 30.
Relax and take a breather
For those who want to just slow down and unwind for the weekend, Alviera has attractions where one can simply bask in nature. Visitors can savor the sight of greens at the Greenscapes, an area which features a blooms field, vertiver and tree farms, and an ornamental plant nursery. An open lawn, a lounge area, and picnic grounds provide ample space for families and friends to gather and relax.
Planning for a more formal gathering? The estate is also home to the world-class Alviera Country Club, which has multi-purpose function and meeting rooms for gatherings and special events available for rent. The Club features lush open spaces and stunning mountain views, designed to make any get-together feel like an intimate visit with Mother Nature herself.
With its myriad of offerings, EXPLORAC brings you closer to the local landscape’s beauty and wonder the Alviera way—through urban living in nature. Whether to slow down or to amp up the energy, one can experience the joy of reconnecting with the environment through EXPLORAC, all while enlivening the local community of Pampanga.
