Type of Trip
This is a unique trekking experience in Hokkaido! A 3-day traverse along the coast line of Shiretoko Cape, surrounded by amazing wild life.
During this trip on the Shiretoko peninsula, you will have the opportunity of seeing local fishermen harvesting the famous Rausu Konbu (kelp). This seaweed is known as the best Konbu for preparing the essential “Dashi (broth)”, one of the critical ingredients of Japanese cuisine.
Furthermore, there’s a high chance of encountering fauna like wild bears and white-tailed sea eagles.
I believe this trekking is great for those looking for wild experiences in Japan, spending the nights in a tent and enjoying a beautiful scenery.
Please contact me if you want to join me for this 3-day adventure in the easternmost of Hokkaido. I will be glad to take you there!

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?

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).
