Mountain Biking In Nagano

Mountain Biking In Hakuba Japan

Mountain Biking in Japan is huge, and enthusiasm for the sport is growing. Hakuba and the surrounding Nagano region are rich in exciting mountain bike trails and offer numerous scenic trails for relaxing rides around mountain lakes and through small villages. In addition, there is a growing community of downhill racers, resulting in many new trail building projects, races, and annual events.


We offer 3 tours daily from April – November. Depending on your group / level and what you want to get out of it choose from the Funride, Downhill, or Private guiding. See details about the tours below.

MTB Funride

This bike tour is perfect for families with children, novice to intermediate riders, or those looking not for an extreme ride but for a scenic pedal around Hakuba. We ride scenic trails around mountain rivers, weave through forest trails and rice fields and show beautiful parts of Hakuba you might otherwise miss.

We operate our Downhill Tour at Iwatake Mountain Bike Park which has great downhill trails with wide range of levels from beginner to advanced. During a half day tour, we normally do 2 runs from the top to the bottom using Gondola that costs ¥1,200 per ride. If you are experienced mountain biker and prefer natural mountain trail, we load everything into our vans and provide transport to the top of the hills on the Eastern side of Hakuba. Practice riding techniques on top while gazing out at amazing views of the Hakuba mountain range and ride some of Hakuba’s single-track downhill on well-maintained Specialized & Kona MTB’s.

Mountain Bike Private tour

MTB Freeride Group in the Alps

Free Riding is just like the name implies, riding pretty much anything the area has to offer. Technical skill and balance are a prerequisite for this type of riding as we will be practicing narrow structure riding techniques, jumps, drops, steeps, hill climbing and cross-country riding. Shocks are not essential for this type of riding but it sure softens the impact for us mere mortals. The Freeride is an intense half-day tour that covers a huge range of riding techniques as well as a large part of the Hakuba area – you must be fit and ready-to-ride.
