Holiday Information

Much more than just a cycling holiday in Japan, this is an opportunity to experience the unique Ainu culture of Hokkaido and meet people ready to share their wonderful cuisine and traditions.
Join us as we enjoy the peace and tranquility of Japan’s most northern island during a tour that has been carefully crafted to ensure you get the very best of this unique part of the country.
This is a land of incredible lakes, steaming volcanic mountains and soothing natural hot springs, all of which can be explored via a myriad of quiet country lanes that are just perfect for cycling.
Hokkaido is the best place in Japan to enjoy onsens (hot-spring baths) which are invariably part of your accommodation and there is nothing better to end your cycling day.
Food plays an integral part of Japanese life so be prepared for some truly delicious cuisine along the way. For the adventurous there is a new food adventure around each and every corner.
Accommodation is of a high standard throughout and varies from modern hotels to comfortable traditional minshuku and ryokan.
