Regular flight to reach the most northerly town on Hokkaido island. Then, by a short transfer by bus, we reach the port of Wakkanai, or we wait for the ferry to cross to Rishiri island. Night in a small onsen in double rooms. Very nice hot springs.
We will explore the northern side of the volcano. Night in an onsen in double rooms.
We will go on the west face and we will try to cross.
We take the ferry back to the village of Abashiri. On the road, a stop in one of the best seafood restaurant of the island imposes itself.
Night in an Onsen in double rooms.
Ascent of Mount Shari, 1,547 meters, the major mountain of this region. We will pass through Rausu at the end of the road to the Shiretoko Peninsula. Dinner at a ryokan with best seafood in the world (it is almost impossible to eat everything).
If the weather is calm and the wind not too strong, we will take a boat to go all the way up the peninsula to try to make the tour of Shiretoko Dake, a unique itinerary.
Two possibilities for this day: two magnificent volcanoes not far from Memanbestu, where we will sleep at night.
Onsen. Double rooms.
Due to the changing prices of airline tickets, if you register after November 1st. an increase can be applied. The sooner you register, the better our chances will be to book the best Onsen.
I have been a mountain guide since I was 25 years old. My passion for discovering the mountains of the world has led me to the four corners of the earth. Currently, I am also an instructor at the National School of Skiing and Mountaineering (ENSA).
Each year, I organize different trips. I'm in charge of each trip's organization and I'm sometimes also the guide who leads the group. It could either be me or one of my 4 guide friends, who I have been working with for years.
I have been organizing trips around the world for the past 26 years: Alaska, Antractica, Nepal, Mongolia...Over the years, I have organized trips in more than 30 countries.
In recent years I have had the opportunity to discover:
- Ski traverse in Greenland
- Ski touring in Iran, Lebanon, Mongolia, Argentina, Canada
- Climbing in the Yukon at the Lotus Flower, Jordan, Oman
- The high summits of Sichuan, Kula Kangri in Tibet, Langtang Ri in Nepal
I am currently based in Chamonix and the other 3 guides who work with me live nearby as well. If you are interested in traveling far away or discovering the Mont Blanc massif and other places in the Alps, for climbing, ski touring or ice climbing, please contact me. It will be a pleasure for me to organise a trip that meets your expectations.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
