Hakuba Amazing Hakuba

Hakuba (白馬), located in the Northern Alps of Nagano Prefecture, is one of Japan's most popular ski areas, offering good snow and several large ski resorts to choose from. During the 1998 Nagano Winter Olympics, Hakuba gained world wide recognition as it hosted several olympic competitions, including alpine (downhill, super g, and combination) and nordic (ski jump and cross country) events. Today some of the olympic facilities remain in use, such as the Hakuba Ski Jumping Stadium. There is also the Hakuba Olympic Village Memorial Hall, a small but interesting museum, located within walking distance of the ski jump.

Ride Hakuba

Hakuba is one of the most famous locations for winter sports in Asia. Made famous through the 1998 Winter Olympics, the region has some top quality snow and facilities. However, where there is good snow there is usually good cycling and Hakuba is no different. From April through to November, the ‘green’ season has some of the most stunning cycling roads in Japan, all within the backdrop of the western alps. Alpine lakes nestled between pristine green rice fields and peaceful, quiet mountain roads make it a must destination. RideJapan has been coming to Hakuba for over 10 years and we still find new and interesting roads as well as love showing our riders our favorites.

Day 1

Arrive Hakuba + Lakes Loop (30-40km)

Welcome to Hakuba. After being collected from the station (Hakuba or Kamashiro) you will be transferred to your accommodation where your bikes will be ready and waiting. Our local host will make any final adjustments and you should be ready to head out for an afternoon ride.

The lakes loop offers a great to way get familiar with the bikes and the area and there is plenty of stunning views on this relatively flat course.

Dinner recommendations are provided

Day 2

Miasa & Ikeda Loop (65-90km)

This loop is a personal favorite of ours and showcases what Hakuba cycling is all about; small villages, quiet roads, stunning views, and the odd climb here and there. 

Day 3

Lookout Loop + Depart (40km)

Heading early up the stunning 407 brings you one of the most amazing views of the western alps. With the sun low and the cloud cover thin, the sheer enormity of the mountains can be appreciated. Early in the year, the snow still perched makes for a stunning photo. An easy roll down the hill before checkout and transfers to the station.
