Experience Mount Fuji with a qualified guide!

On this one-day climb, we'll avoid the congested mountain huts often encountered on multi-day trips and enjoy a peaceful crowd-free hike!

Our adventure begins at 5:00 AM with a convenient pick-up at your hotel around Fuji Yoshida City. We'll then drive you to the 5th station trailhead, situated at an impressive 7,546 feet (2,300 meters) above sea level. After a short gear check and briefing, we'll embark on our ascent around 7:00 AM, aiming to reach the summit by 2:00 PM.

The descent usually takes about 3 hours, bringing us back to the 5th station by 5:00 PM, where our transportation awaits to return you to your hotel.

With a background in travel medicine, I'll be able to address any health concerns you might have before or during your climb. With extensive experience leading hikes for US military personnel stationed in Japan, this experience in Fuji will be both safe and exhilarating!

Fluent in both English and Japanese, I'll also be able to bridge any communication gaps and ensure a smooth and informative climb.

I am very pleased with Explore-Share! This was my first international climb, and the communication and response time were great. Herbie is a very skilled guide and very efficient. The entire booking process & payment was smooth. I will definitely use Explore-Share again. Thank you.



I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
