Whether you are looking for an advanced and challenging backcountry tour or guided access to the best hidden treasures in central Hokkaido, this 1+days backcountry splitboarding adventure has it all!
With a surface area of 83,453.57 km2, Hokkaido is the second-largest island of Japan. Famous for its harsh winters with lots of snowfall, it is known to have the best powder in the world. It’s no wonder that skiers and splitboarders are so eager to visit this winter sport haven!
During this 1+ days tour, it’ll be my pleasure to guide you through this famous Japanese gem. You will revel at the beautiful scenery, from the spectacular blue sea at the gorgeous Shakotan Peninsula to the Kariba-yama range, dominated by long valleys and huge, volcanic peaks. Furthermore, you will discover off-the-beaten path resorts and secret treasures in the high mountain ranges that you wouldn’t find otherwise. Moreover, you will also have the chance to discover the Japanese culture!
Because this backcountry trip is for intermediate and advanced splitboarders, you will need some prior experience. Furthermore, you will need a good fitness level to join. Also, keep in mind that you decide how long to make your tour!

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
