Hiking and Biking in Hokkaido

star-5
20 Reviews
Hiking and Biking in Hokkaido
The natural beauty of Hokkaido, with its wide-open wilderness, lush forests, and many mountains and lakes, is a wonder to explore at any time of year. But during summer, you can enjoy myriad stellar hiking and mountain biking trails that are snow-covered in winter. Activity tours help you get the most out of Hokkaido’s trail network. Here are your options.
 
Highlights
  • See more of Sapporo’s vast natural surroundings—and get some exercise and fresh mountain air—by touring Hokkaido’s trails by foot or by bike.
  • Discover some of the region’s most beautiful sights and get insights into local culture with help from your guide.
  • See wildflowers and native fauna as you explore Hokkaido’s wilderness.
  • Opt for a private or small-group tour for a more personalized experience.
  • Take a tour that ends with a refreshing soak in a traditional Japanese hot spring (onsen).
 
Hiking Tours in Hokkaido
For a casual hike overlooking Sapporo, take the ropeway to the top of Mt. Moiwa, a small peak with a cable car and an overlook just south of the city center. For something more strenuous, take a hiking day trip from Sapporo to the summit of Mt. Tarumae, one of Japan’s most active volcanoes. From the top, enjoy views of Lake Shikotsu and (on a clear day) the Pacific Ocean. Tours typically conclude with a few reinvigorating dips in indoor and outdoor natural hot springs.
 
Biking Tours in Hokkaido
You can also enjoy the scenic environs of Lake Shikotsu by mountain bike on a guided tour from Sapporo. Alternatively, stay closer to the city on a cycling tour of the nearby forest paths, which usually culminates with a soak in an onsen. Exploring Nopporo Forest Park by mountain bike lets you get up close to its abundant flora and fauna—such as deer, for which Nopporo is famed. Tours are typically small in size and include equipment.
 
Hikers and mountain bikers alike should not miss Daisetsuzan National Park, Hokkaido’s largest. This spot boasts mountains, rivers, waterfalls, and forests, and is home to the Sounkyo Gorge. You can rent bicycles in the town of Sounkyo to explore deep into the gorge, where plunging waterfalls crisscross 300-foot (91-meter) cliffs.
