All September long – Your favorite outdoor activities!
September is one of the clearest months in Niseko, meaning there is plenty of sunshine to get out and enjoy your favorite outdoor activities! Crisp and refreshing temperatures can be more comfortable than Niseko’s peak summer. Take Annupuri’s summer gondola up for a better view, or get your thrills at Niseko Grand Hirafu’s mountain bike tracks. Pure at Niseko Village offers a variety of fun things to do in one spot including zip lines, tree trekking, horse riding, and more.
