Shiretoko Active Snowshoeing and Drift Ice Walk Trip

 

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 or Marseille, but the climate is extremely different. The temperatures of February are comprised between -11°C (12,2°F) and -3°C (26,6°F).

 

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. 

The itinerary can be flexible, so please talk with our guide where to go, what to eat.
