Cycle Hokkaido

11 Days Moderate-Advanced

Ride along the North Pacific coast and through the mountains of the Shiretoko World Heritage area. Cycle through wild sub arctic mountains, past caldera lakes and native forests. Stay in superb inns, most with hot spring baths.

The essence of the far north is to be found here. Caldera lakes and volcanoes, high snow capped peaks, crystal clear mountain streams and deep mysterious forests of Hokkaido Red Pine and Silver Birch with their population of brown bears still largely intact.

Throughout is the ever present Japanese foot print, existing side by side with nature. Small seaside fishing villages and rural farms with large land holdings still have their temples tucked away in quiet Larch filled groves. Ever present are the many artisans who have escaped the crush of city life in the south to the frontier land of Hokkaido. All of this makes for a destination that mixes wild nature at its most beautiful with the elements of this unique culture.

For cyclists, this place is superb. The wide open smooth roads roll before you as you explore from the coast to the mountains, staying nightly in wonderful inns. Here you can soak your cares away in a hot spring bath before a banquet of superb local food.

Our route encompass the wild east of Hokkaido with its unique world heritage area, the Shiretoko Peninsula.

We also visit the superb caldera lakes and mountains of central Hokkaido, as well as the mighty Daisetsusan National Park and the Furano area in the itinerary.
