Japan & Mongolia

Cycling Adventures

Cycling Tours In Asia

Japan's art, history, and culture help set the stage for partcularly interesting active holidays. It has some of the finest cycling highways in the world; there are wild forests, gorgeous coastlines, fascinating temples, and vibrant cities along these routes. The roads are well-paved and adjusted to cycling; the landscape is lush; the food is fresh and unique; the people are fascinating; and the spirit of adventure is high! Join us and make some beautiful eastern friends.

Mongolia, on the high plains between China and Russia, has a unique cultural background. The area we explore is sparsely populated, largely by nomads who ride - horses more frequently than bikes, but their landscape is well-suited to either, as long as you are not expecting paved roads. We use fat-tire bikes to explore an area so open and beautiful that, even in this sparsely-populated area, it has been preserved as the Altai Tavan Bogd National Park. There is a UNESCO world heritage site in a river valley, a background of Mongolia's highest peaks, deep lush valleys, and large pristine lakes, but it's the people that make it truly fascinating. Nomadic, eagle-hunting (that's hunting WITH eagles), and warmly hospitable, they live in colourfully-decorated gers in ways that have not changed much for eons. Join us, and enjoy a cultural fair that will put you in very close contact with a fascinating population.
