Aokiko in Spring

Summer Season

Hakuba may be a skiers heaven, but it is transformed into a tranquil retreat with something for everyone between May and November.

Cycling

Road Cycling & Mountain Biking

Enthusiasm for mountain biking is growing, and Hakuba and the surrounding Nagano region are rich in exciting mountain bike trails offering scenic routes through small villages and around mountain lakes. Downhill mountain biking is also growing in popularity, with some of the ski resorts building new courses.

Canyoning

Canyoning

Hakuba has several breathtaking canyons that can be experienced from May to October. Canyoning involves swimming, jumping, using ropes and cascading down whitewater chutes. Late spring and early summer have the highest water flow due to snowmelt and spring rains. Our friends at Evergreen Outdoor Center offer several tours.

Hiking in Hakuba

Hiking and Walks

One of Hakuba’s main attractions during the summer months is hiking, with hikers boarding the gondolas to reach the upper areas of the ski fields and hiking several trails through the Japanese Alps. There are several tour operators in the valley. Please ask up for details.

Paragliding in Hakuba

Sup in Hakuba

SUP

In the past few years, Hakuba has seen a surge in interest in SUP or stand up paddleboards. Aoki Lake is popular due to the lack of motorboats and the fresh crystal clear waters delivering a full-body workout and a refreshing dip in the hot summer temperatures. There are a few places on the lake that offer board rentals.
