  • Discover the winter charm of eastern Hokkaido! Scenic & Dynamic Cold Weather Tour in Shiretoko and Teshikaga<3 nights, 4 days / rental car included>


This tour allows you to encounter the spectacular winter landscapes that can only be experienced in the eastern part of Hokkaido, where the temperatures are often below freezing.


The drift ice created by the Amur River moves slowly southward through the Sea of Okhotsk and reaches Shiretoko around the end of January. This truly is an extraordinary event as it can only be created under the right conditions.

In Teshikaga, the air is clearer in winter, so you can enjoy different picturesque scenery than can bee seen in summer, such as snow-capped mountains, sapphire blue lakes, flocks of whooper swans, and star-filled skies.

This tour allows you to experience the spectacular scenery and extreme cold unique to the east of Hokkaido, where days below freezing are the norm. Experience the unique activities of the region, including a walk on drift ice in Shiretoko and snowshoeing  and winter canoeing in Teshikaga!
Snowshoeing is a popular winter activity that even beginners can easily enjoy. Equipped with the right equipment for walking on powder snow, you can enjoy the magnificent scenery while hiking through a winter wonderland.


*The itinerary may be changed or canceled depending on the snow cover and snow melting conditions. In that case, we will contact and consult with customers who have made a reservation each time.
