Izu Hike's staff have moved to Fuji Five Lakes to focus on our business offering guided hikes to the summit of Mt Fuji, as well as bike tours and winery tours in the mountain's foothills. Find us there at www.fujibiketour.com.
Although we will be located too far away to continue offering Izu Hike's single-day tours, we would be happy to meet requests for multi-day hiking and biking tours in Izu. If you're interested in a multi-day tour in Izu, contact us.

Description: A hilly ride on Izu's most remote coastline winds past aloe farms and turquoise bays where hawks are often seen circling and diving. Long biking segments on flower-lined countryside and oceanfront roads alternate with short hikes. Ascend to capes and hilltops offering outstanding views of hidden coves and distant islands. Explore verdant paths that transport you to ancient shrines and cave-dotted cliffs. An outdoor hot spring bath offers a soothing close to the trip.
