Enjoy Snowshoeing in Powder Snow and the Thrill to walk on the Drift Ice wearing Drysuit


Shiretoko National Park , located on the Shiretoko Peninsula in eastern Hokkaido, is one of Japan's most beautiful and unspoiled national parks.
Shiretoko is located at a 44 degrees latitude, at the same level of Milan , but the climate is extremely different. The temperatures of February can be as low as -20°C (-4°F)
Please wear season appropriate clothing, and shoes.

This is hence extremely rare to be able to see drift ice as such a southern latitude.
No worry for the beginners. The experienced guide gives you instructions.
The tour features easy snowshoeing hike in Furepe waterfall path and Drift Ice Walk.
