Hokkaido at the northern edge of Japan offers fantastic opportunities for adventure seekers. Hokkaido may be best known for the excellent snow conditions, but there are secrets that are revealed only in summer. The heavy snowfall in winter is what makes Hokkaido roads so wide and smooth, providing perfect conditions for road cycling. The roads are maintained regularly (virtually every summer) and built with ample space to house the snow. The harsh winter also means less population, traffic and good food, everything you wish for in a cycle touring destination! The ocean surrounding Hokkaido is blessed with bountiful seafood, attracting many food lovers all over the country, and it gets more exotic and even higher quality as we journey further north. This 13 day itinerary explores the northern most national park of Japan containing the undiscovered cycling paradise Rishiri Island. There are over six thousand islands belonging to the Japanese Archipelago, and islands are the destinations you can’t miss when in Japan!

This tour is designed for stronger riders who like to ride longer distances. The route is set so cyclists can challenge themselves by cycling the whole route from lodging to lodging. In the event of bad weather or illness, you have the option to exchange your bike for the support vehicle, which will carry all equipment and luggage.
