Aso City’s Nature Adventures

Breakaway from the hustle and bustle of the city and surround yourself with nature. Explore Aso through activities that will leave you and your family energized. Trek along the unspoilt greenery of Chikugo River in Mazeno Valley, where an enormous waterfall will leave you breathless of its beauty. Don’t want to get wet? Try a horse-riding trek instead and breathe in the clean air of Aso’s grasslands. Feeling tired and gloomy? Revitalize your mind and soul through their yoga lessons with a gorgeous backdrop of Aso Mountain Peaks. 

If thrill is your cup of tea, dare yourself to try paragliding and bathe in the warm sunset and azure skies. For a group experience, ride the hot air balloon and fly through the panoramic views of Aso City. Delight in the range of activities available for each of your family’s tastes.
