Hanazono and Niseko are beautiful places – but so is the rest of the island prefecture of Hokkaido, so why not explore more? Hanazono Day Tours are the perfect way to turn a simple trip to Niseko into a cross-island tour, discovering all there is to see on Hokkaido’s natural paradise. Niseko is a great region to use as a base: its position in the relative center of the island makes travel in all directions easy. Hanazono offers day tours to the Furano/Biei area, Otaru, Lake Toya and Noboribetsu, and Sapporo City.

Hanazono’s most adrenaline-fueled, physically challenging, adventure activity. You will put on a wetsuit and a vest to explore a network of canyons and deep pools where you will jump, slide, swim, and finish off with a 6m jump into a deep blue pool. The first section is a slow river section where you can take in the natural surrounds, followed by slightly more turbulent waters, and finishing off at the stunning Lion Falls.
