Hokkaido Backcountry Tour
FULLY GUIDED & HOSTED BACKCOUNTRY TOURING
Designed for experienced backcountry tourers that want to get out and see Japan’s wilds you can expect to conquer some of Hokkaido’s highest and most iconic peaks. From the Daistesu National park in the North to the crater of Mt Yotei in the South, this tour will go where the snow is and hike to find the best untouched lines we can.
For the first 5 nights, you will be based out of Furano, Hokkaido’s emerging backcountry capital. From here you’ll chase the best conditions whilst exploring the Daisetsu mountain range linking Kurodake, Asahidake and Tokachidake; home to some of the best backcountry skiing in Hokkaido. There are endless options in this area as well as countless onsens to soak in after rewarding hikes and long deep runs.
From Furano, we head to world-famous Niseko where we can chase the storms rolling in from the Sea of Japan or Pacific. This tour has been conceived from listening to our past clients who wanted more days in Hokkaido’s backcountry, with nine nights and up to eights days on snow, a high level of fitness and experience touring will be needed. We will be out for multi-run days all under our own leg power to get away from the crowds and explore further.
All this will be fully guided by our most experienced guides not just on the snow but off the snow too as we take you to some of the delicious restaurants, sampling local food and enjoying great company.
With a max of 4 clients per guide and a max of 8 people on the tour, it’ll be just you, the deep Japanese powder and endless opportunity.

" Loved the energy both guides brought to the tour. Their pure love for what they’re doing really flows through to everyone in the group. The highlights were riding/hiking Tokachidake and staying up there in that area. Amazing Onsens and food. Being surrounded by the beauty and tranquility of nature after riding all day was very therapeutic "
