Snowshoe lake Toya

We are planning to start from late December, 2024.

Let us stroll in white forest, using snowshoes. Your feet float like rabbits walk on snow.

Quiet woods, whisper of winds, serene lake, and snow still falling.
We are able to walk in woods easily, where it is densely covered by vegetation in summer.
You may slide on your bottom on downhills?

We instruct the activity and guide the lake, Hokkaido nature in English when we do an English tour.
It would be easier for you to communicate if we talk directly.  
That makes your tour safer, also you could hear more about Hokkaido nature from the guide. 
You do not need a translator on board. We charge 2000 JPY/person/hour as an English-guiding fee.
e.g.) Canoeing short touring is 1.5 hour tour = 3000 JPY/person is added to the original fare.
