All About this Tour

Jutting out into the Sea of Japan, the remote Noto Peninsula offers a coastline of impressive seascapes to explore by bike. While the rugged western coast rises and falls, eroded as it is by wind and wave, the eastern coast enjoys a calmer shore and stunning views of the distant Nagano alpine peaks.

Reviews

A wonderful way to experience Japan. Beautiful trails, breathtaking views, and extremely qualified guide.

I just wanted to let you know that we absolutely loved the trip. The guide Paul was extremely helpful, professional and organized. He had an assistant called Kenta and both made sure our experience was very local, enjoying the main sightseeing attractions, local food and a perfect combination between small hotels and local Japanese accommodations. The ride itself was beautiful, fun and an adventure. It was a great pleasure, thank for your help.
