Inter Island Explorer Tour

FULLY GUIDED & HOSTED RESORT & BACKCOUNTRY POWDER TOUR

Buckle up! This epic tour has you road tripping for 14 days from Central Hokkaido, across to Otaru, over the Tsugaru Strait to Aomori and then down to Morioka in Tohoku or vice versa. This road trip is one for the books and will offer everything a powder hunter will want out of a trip to Japan.

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

For those of you starting in Central Hokkaido you’ll spend your first 4 nights in Furano at the comfy North Country Inn. 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. 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 Furano you’ll transfer to the powder capital of Hokkaido, Otaru, for three nights and the deepest snow of your lives at Kiroro, Kokusai or Teine. Staying in Otaru city you’ll explore the old European canals, enjoy local beer or visit the Yoichi Whiskey Distillery 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 3 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 3 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. At night your guides will take you out for delicious local food and the vibrant nightlife of Morioka.
