Hokkaido Great Nature Ride (GNR) is a 7-day guided & fully-supported cycling tour that takes you to the central region of including, Asahikawa,Furano, Biei & Daisetsuzan National Park. 

This cycling tour offers superb cycling on quiet countryside roads, suitable for those who prefer to have variety of activities with different sceneries.

It is especially recommended for those who are joining us to cycle in Hokkaido for the 1st time.
You start from Tomamu with a cable-car ride up to the unkai terraces, an observation deck to see the stunning vista of sea of clouds & mountains.  We designed the cycling route using quiet countryside roads whenever possible, towards the central region of Furano, noted for its lavender fields, poppies, lilies & sunflowers, Farm Tomita with views of Mount Tokachi.

You will spend some time to cycle around beautiful Biei, known as one of the most charming towns in Japan.
Main attractions include Biei Patchwork Road, including Shikisai no-oka, a flower garden featuring patterned rows of colourful blossoms.  We use the special bike pathways along the Biei river to the famous Shirogane Blue Pond & Shirahige Waterfalls.

The finale takes you up to the foothills of Asahidake, the highest mountain in Hokkaido at 2291m in the Daisetsuzan National Park.  Here, you will spend one night up in the mountains in a nice resort hotel with onsen, before descending to Asahikawa via scenic bike pathways along the Chubetsu river.
