Snowshoeing & Horse Trekking at a Wintry Orchard

HOME > Snowshoeing & Horse Trekking at a Wintry Orchard


Snowshoe on fluffy virgin snow at the foot of this mountain, starting from the Mt. Hakken orchard. This activity is ideal for a crisp morning!
The thick snowpack means you'll be walking through the woods high above ground level. Wonders await you!
You may see some bird nests, which would be hard to spot in summer. The tree branches and scenery look quite different in winter. Overlooking the path you've taken, have lunch at a restaurant that uses local ingredients.
Then comes the highly anticipated horse trekking. If you like, you can ride a horse led by a staff member.
You'll be taught how to mount a horse and how to ride it while it walks and runs. Even a beginner can be confident of enjoying this activity.
Visit the Ainu Culture Promotion Center. Then, take a hot spring bath to warm yourself from the cold activities.
Yukitouro, an event featuring snow candles, is held at Jozankei Shrine for a limited period. The wonderland of scenic candles is sure to enchant you.
The fun winter recreation of this tour is sure to bring you 120% satisfaction.
