This is a half-day tour of the Nayoro city basin by bicycle and canoe on the Teshio River, Japan’s 4th longest. With its basin climate, Nayoro sees the most vivid of changes to the 4 seasons, even for Hokkaido. And cycling sure beats driving to take in this colorful show-sunflowers in the summer and drooping, golden rice ears in fall. Get off your bike on the banks of the Nayoro river and start your relaxing canoe trip. Along the way, you join the Teshio River and the forest comes up so close, you’ll enjoy natural scenery that can only be seen from the water. Your bicycle is collected by a shuttle car and a local canoe guide comes with, so even beginners and families can enjoy the adventure-no worries.
