The island of Hokkaido is famous for its extreme low temperatures. Besides being a top skiing destination, there are many interesting possibilities for ice climbing, either for beginners or seasoned climbers.

If you want to get started on this fascinating sport, I propose to take you on a 1-day trip around Sapporo area. The largest city in the island boasts some exciting iced falls which are the ideal setting for you to make your first steps and learn the basics.

In case you already have some previous ice climbing experience, we can go for a 2-day trip to Raiden-Onsen and Sounkyo area.

Raiden is a coastal location, at a 2-hour drive from Sapporo, with a very scenic ice climbing area.

Sounkyo, on the other hand, lies at the foot of Mt. Kurodake, in the north of Daisetsuzan National Park. Here you’ll find several multi-pitch routes.

Would you like to do something different on your ski trip to Japan? Send me a request for a 1 or 2-day ice climbing trip in Hokkaido. 

In case you’re looking for ski trips, here’s a 1-day backcountry ski trip in Hokkaido.
