Hakuba Snowshoe Tours

Samurai Snow Concierge

Snowshoe Tours are a great way to experience a world away from the crowds and lift-lines, and explore the silence of Hakuba’s more removed areas.

The Hakuba area has endless trails on mountain ridges or through old forests and shrines, with truly some of the best alpine views in all of Japan.

If you’re coming over the Christmas break, be sure to book early for our Christmas and New Year’s Day Snowshoe Tours featuring mulled wine and hot chocolate.

As well as Group Half-Day and Private Half & Full Day Snowshoe Tours, we also offer Evening Snowshoe Tours with chocolate fondue.

Meeting Location

The meeting location for all snowshoe tours is the Evergreen Guiding Office in Lower Wadano neighbourhood of Wadano Village.
