- 50,000 Japanese yen¥50,000
- Tour starts and ends in Fuji area
Mt. Fuji is not only Japan's tallest mountain (by a long shot), but it's fear-inspiring power and breathtaking symmetry have made it a spiritual and cultural icon synonymous with Japan itself. At 3,776m (12,388 ft.) Fuji towers majestically over the surrounding landscape, and it is impossible not to be awed by its enormous scale and raw beauty. In ancient times it was the inspiration for countless legends, poems and paintings, and nowadays climbing to the top ranks as a must-do bucket-list item for most Japanese and international tourists alike. Though it is far more physically demanding and time consuming, starting at the ocean is an incredibly rewarding, once-in-a-lifetime achievement that takes hikers on a multi-layered journey from the ocean to the barren volcanic summit crater of Mt. Fuji, passing through cities, picturesque tea fields, and lush mossy forests along the way. It is definitely the route less traveled, and a rare chance to see a completely different side of one of the world's most climbed peaks. This is the hardest trip Hike + Bike Japan currently offers, and the level of physical fitness to complete this this one-of-a-kind challenge should not be underestimated. On this hike, we will cover a distance of roughly 47km, with approximately 4,000 meters of total elevation gain, and we should expect to be on the trail for around 8 hours on day one, and as many as 13 hours on day two. This intense level of activity is best suited to runners, hikers or trail runners who train regularly and have experience completing long distances with large elevation gains in a single day.
