Nowhere does it snow like it snows in Japan!
On this weeklong, all-inclusive ski safari, we will take you into the mystical forests of Japan, specifically the Hakuba region, to experience the famous powder skiing that the region is known for. It combines spectacular skiing with easy access – that’s a win-win!
The forest and its unique offering is the definition of Japanese skiing. In it you will find deep, crispy powder and runs very difficult to match. Floating through a wide terrain of trees, surfing the freshly laid down powder is truly a magical feeling.
Hakuba provides us with world class skiing in a gorgeous landscape of tall ridges and impressive summits, all combined with the distinct cultural experience that is Japan. Add to that the fact that when the weather conditions are ripe, it is common to see 15-50cm of fresh powder in a single day and you are sure to find a unique skiing experience.
On this trip, all you need to do is show up with your desire for legendary skiing and let us take care of the rest! In addition to receiving guiding services from two experienced guides, the price includes accommodation, vehicle transport, breakfast, dinner (there’s sushi night!) and lift tickets – everything to keep you focussed on enjoying the runs!

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.
Hakuba is on the island of Honshu. It is a 3 to 5 hour journey from Tokyo via train, bus, or airport shuttle.
