Join me for an amazing traverse in Hokkaido, hiking from Mt Rausu (Rausudake) to Mt Io (Shiretoko Iozan).

During this 2 or 3-day trip, we’ll be hiking on the ridge line of the Shiretoko Peninsula.

We will start hiking from a low altitude forest and go forward to a volcanic ridge line. In addition to a wonderful trekking experience, you can enjoy a guided tour about alpine plants and wild animals.

Besides, we’ll spend the nights in a tent, enjoying the beautiful environment.

In fact, this region is a Natural World Heritage Site, famous for its wide variety of natural life.

This program is ideal for experienced hikers. I recommend to take a 3-day itinerary so you can have enough time to walk. Please inform me of your past trekking / hiking experiences when contacting me.

If you want to join me for this adventure, please contact me. I will be happy to be your guide in this amazing place!

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.
