Experience a world away from the crowds and lift-lines and explore the silence of Hakuba’s more removed areas on snowshoes. The Hakuba area has endless trails on mountain ridges or through old growth forests and shrines, with truly some of the best Alpine views in all of Japan. We run snowshoe full day and afternoon half day tours everyday from December 10th to the end of the season. Minakami area snowshoe tours are provided by Canyons.
The walk is not strenuous, but just enough to work up an appetite for dessert fondue in a specially crafted snow shelter.
