CAMERON JOYCE FOUNDER & HEAD GUIDE
YAKUSHIMA EXPERIENCE offers many different hiking adventures. These are a collection of the best adventure experiences we have discovered in our years of living here. We also have a few `Special Courses` which we prefer to keep secret until we have established you are interested in something a little bit off the radar.
There really are many phenomenal hikes on Yakushima. We have listed some of the more popular hiking courses here, but we specialize in communicating with our clients in advance, discussing expectations and fitness levels, then setting up an adventure plan so that you can maximize your time on the island. This means YAKUSHIMA EXPERIENCE can arrange a multiple day itinerary that includes hiking. Island Sight-seeing or cycling through the lush UNESCO Seibu Rindoh forest path.
