“Reindeer sled” is popular in Niseko Village in winter. It’s recommended for ages three and up. You can enjoy slowly as watching the back of the reindeer while the snow falls. It feels just like Santa Claus or the heroine of a fairy tale.
Reindeer with the lovely expression and powerful horn has a good appearance in a white world. It’s an experience that Hokkaido people who are familiar with sled cannot experience too much. “Reindeer sled” is unusual among various activities in the Niseko area. Please have a try!

Niseko’s horseback riding is a popular activity, but it’s not only in spring or summer. You can experience horseback riding even in winter in Niseko Village. The snowy field from the horse’s back is wonderful. Since the staff takes a rein and walks slowly, it’s recommended for ages four and up. It’s a wonderful way to enjoy the scenery from the horse above after enjoying the skiing.

Take a walk around the sparkling snowy field!

Snowshoeing Tour
“Snowshoe Tour” is recommended for those who wish to walk around the snowy field with their own feet. “Snowshoe” is a Western style tool to walk without filling the snow. The tour can be participated by reservation up to the day before. Of course, the snowshoes, boots, and pole rental are included in the price.
They go on an adventure for about an hour and a half in a clean snowy field where people will not walk usually. On a snowy day, it’s so quiet and only the sound of the snow will come to be heard. On a sunny day, the beautiful scenery spreading glittery spread in front. You may be able to meet wild animals if you are lucky.
Cross-country skiing is recommended for those who want to experience skiing. It’s a so-called “walking skiing” so you can feel free to experience it. There is an exclusive course of about one-kilo meters permanently. You can enjoy at your own pace after renting gear.

A thrilling point! Snow rafting

Snow rafting
There is also a perfect activity for those wanting stimulation and thrills.
In “Snow rafting”, we ride on a rubber boat for river transport drawn by staff’s driving snowmobile, and drive through the snowy ground.
“Snowmobile adventure” is recommended for those who want to run through the snowy field by themselves. It can be used to suit your taste as it has one-seater and two-seater. In the case of a two-seater, the rear rider needs to grab the front driver while running.

What's interesting

It’s a nice opportunity to pay attention to “the snow” itself when playing in the snow. As scooping the new snow with your hands and looking at it, you can see the crystal of snow. Shapes of crystals are completely different from day to day. What kind of crystal can you meet?
