Hokkaido is considered Japan's wild frontier. This northern island is known for wildlife, volcanoes, pristine lakes, vast forests, fields of flowers, and, of course, Japan's ubiquitous hot springs (onsens).

You'll cycle on smooth roads, over the highest paved mountain pass in Hokkaido – Mikuni Toge at 1,139 m (3,737 ft) – ride around many lakes, including one of the clearest in the world, and long coastal roads. You'll stop to smell the flowers, especially at the Wakka Wild Flower Park, with more than 300 kinds of wild flowers present, the tour is timed to see them in bloom. And you'll head into the wilds of Shiretoko National Park, home to Japan's largest population of brown bears.

Hokkaido's coastal waters boast some of the best and freshest seafood, including crab, scallop, sea urchin, squid, cod, salmon, shrimp, abalone, surf clam, salmon roe, herring, and kelp. Eating local is a highlight of this provider's tours and this seafood bonanza is no exception. No tour to Japan would be complete without onsens to soak in after a day in the saddle, there will be plenty of opportunity to do so on this ride.
