Plan description

Super maniac! Japan's only bicycle + river rafting tour! You can play as much as you like for the whole day! (If you wish, from sunrise to sunset) All by yourself! Cycling is easy if you rent an E-BIKE! Safely support and guide your adventure. Cycling the Shimanto River, crossing the subsidence bridge, going up the river, and going down the river with a bicycle from your favorite place according to the season and weather conditions! You can buy lunch and eat it on the river, or you can go up from the river and eat the local Shimanto River food at the right time! (Lunch is at your own expense), you can have a reasonable adventure according to your taste and physical strength. You can enjoy it for a whole day, or you can finish it in a short time only in a good place. The basic route is fixed, but it all depends on your request as an adventurer! (I can't do more than the guide's physical strength, but lol) This is an adventure where a local guide ensures safety and explains various wild birds, fish, and local culture. In addition, if you do not fail, we will give you a map plot of the photos and GPS data in the guide (data of the trajectory of running and navigating). Basically, it will be sent within 2 hours after the guided tour ends. Please refrain from excessive expectations for the quality of the photos as we are guiding you with one operation and ensuring safety lol * Due to the loading limit of the boat, the weight limit is less than 100 kg. If you want, please apply with the plan of ID: 40522. As a guide, those with a height of 125 cm to 145 cm (OK if you can ride a 24-inch bicycle, treat it as an adult if you can ride 26 inches or more).

Because it is one group a day, you can seriously customize it according to your taste and physical strength!

The basic flow is decided in several patterns, but if you tell us your physical strength, points you want to go to, what you like, etc., we will definitely create a route that you can enjoy the Shimanto area. People with physical strength can go as far as possible, and if you are not confident in your physical strength, you can cycle with humming with E-BIKE. If you are interested in local culture, draw a route accordingly. Enjoy a tour unique to a local guide who is a master of self-proclaimed outdoor play, which is not listed on the tourist guide map. It is not an assembly line tour. The Okera Adventures tour is your "adventure" to participate in.

Even though it's cycling, is it going down the river?

It is a tour that is a maniac play that everyone in the know knows, a play called Bike Rafting that combines pack rafting and cycling. As of the spring of 2021, Okera Adventures is the only tour in Japan that is doing bike rafting. Moreover, I think I like things, but I do it all year round. A lightweight rubber boat (pack craft), which becomes extremely compact when folded, is loaded on the bicycle, and when going down the river, the bicycle is also loaded on the boat. Bicycles and boats are always with you, so you can go anywhere in the river or go up from the river to land. In other words, you are free.

Sports type electrically power assisted bicycles are also available.

There is a sports type electrically power assisted bicycle for those who wish, so please use it for those who want to enjoy it with their spare capacity, those who do not have their own physical strength, couples or groups with different physical strength. There are a total of 6 MTB type and cross bike type. It is quite unlikely that we have 6 E-BIKEs as a personal guide. It is also possible to rent an MTB type and incorporate off-road driving as part of the cycling part (* This is recommended except in summer).

Selling points regarding safety

I have been MTB for more than 10 years and have never had a major injury such as a broken bone. Through outdoor activities such as mountain climbing and camping as well as biking, I am aware of the fear of nature more than enough, and I always try to stop activities and read the weather. In addition, there are friends and acquaintances who are engaged in indoor activities as well as outdoor activities, and we are in a situation where we can introduce them in case of unseasonable weather, so it is quick to decide to cancel. We are the only bike rafting guide in Japan and we are proud to be the best bike rafting guide in Japan.
