Alps Route Japan is a tribute to the mountains of Japan. Covering the high alpine passes, from Gunma to Nagano, and through the Southern Alps to finish on the slopes of Mt. Fuji. If you love riding high on some of the best roads in the world, you will love Alps Route Japan.
Everyday is different except that every day is the same as we challenge the best mountains of Japan. Iconic climbs, such as the beast named Norikura; more than 2700m up in the clouds, or the might of Mt. Fuji on the final day, not once, but twice. We designed Alps Route Japan to push the limits and now in its fourth year. 900km, 19000m of climbing stand between you and the satisfaction of completing a hard week on the bike. Japan is known for its warrior Samurai, do you have what takes to finish Alps Route Japan.
It’s not all pain and punishment and we want you to experience the best of Japanese hospitality, so accommodation is a perfect mix of Alpine Lodges, Traditional Ryokans and Hotels. Everyday is different, and every town is unique. Our goal is to amaze you with Japan off the bike as much as on.
With breathtaking scenery, challenging riding and plenty of off-bike experiences to enjoy as well, the stage is set for a uniquely rewarding cycling holiday – one you and your legs will remember for a long time to come.
The Alps Route Japan Cycling Tour is an Advanced Tour and requires a high level of fitness and bike handling skill. However, with the full support of a great team, professional guides and the best support you can get all you have to do is the riding, we take care of the rest.
