Inter Island Explorer Tour

FULLY GUIDED & HOSTED RESORT & BACKCOUNTRY POWDER TOUR

Central Hokkaido has been famed for providing a truly Japanese experience away from the Western crowds that are now exploring other parts of Japan. With over 10 years of experience operating in the region, we have the area well and truly mapped out and know where to go to find the goods on any given day.

This is the ultimate Japan Ski Tour – Powder, Cultural & Adventure all in one!

This 13-night adventure will see you spend 5 nights in Furano at the comfy North Country Inn. With 4-5 days on snow, you’ll have the opportunity of skiing or riding on Hokkaido’s highest peak Asahidake as well as exploring the slack-country of Furano, Kamui, Tomamu, Sahoro and Pippu.

From there you’ll transfer to the powder capital of Hokkaido, Otaru, for two nights and two days of the deepest snow of your lives at Kiroro, Kokusai or Teine. Staying in Otaru city you’ll explore the old European canals, enjoy a local brew or whiskey and eat some of the freshest sashimi in all of Hokkaido.

After a whirlwind 7 nights in Hokkaido, you’ll transfer down to Hakodate to explore the seafood markets and quaint European style Japanese town before jumping on a ferry across the Tsugaru Strait to Aomori, the northernmost city of the main island of Honshu.

This untapped region is renowned for a mix of the new and old world and loads of untracked powder! Your first 2 nights just below the epic Hakkoda mountain in a lovely onsen hotel. Know for his snow monsters and expansive backcountry Hakkoda is a once in a lifetime ski experience.

You’ll then transfer for your last 4 nights in the lively city of Morioka. Each day you’ll head out to any of the 5 resorts in the region, Appi, Shizukuishi, Hachimantai, Tazawako, Getto Kogen and a couple that are a bit more hard. At night your guides will take you out for delicious local food and the vibrant nightlife of Morioka.

Our team of guides in both Hokkaido and Tohoku have lived and breathed these areas over the years exploring what they have to offer in anticipation of this epic inter-island tour. This road trip is one for the books and will offer everything a powder hunter will want out of a trip to Japan.
