We from the Niseko Resort Tourist Association are recommending a bicycle tour through Niseko!

Please choose one of the many courses through Niseko Town from the Hokkaido Niseko Cycling Map (Japanese) or take one of our staff’s best-recommended routes below, starting from the JR Niseko Train Station. 

Mountains surround Niseko, and most of the roads are hilly. We also recommend renting one of our electric-assisted bicycles, Green Bike +, from the JR Niseko Station to have a smooth cycling experience. If you are looking for bicycles without electrical assistance, we recommend Lion Adventures rental bicycles, just 5 min by feet from the JR Niseko Train Station.
