  • luxury hikes Snow Country Japan

    Snow Country, Japan

    This fully guided snowshoeing tour traverses a region that receives some of the heaviest snowfall anywhere on Earth: Japan’s central Alps region, known as Snow Country. Only accessible with snowshoes, this downy landscape of metres-deep pristine powder snow offers vast vistas; secluded, almost magical, shrines; and remote winter scenery where the only other footprints you see will almost certainly be left by the local wildlife. Accommodation is provided by charming village inns with top-class local cuisine and onsen (hot spring) baths. This seven-day tour that starts in Tokyo and finishes in Nagano is suitable for anyone who is a reasonably strong, regular walker.
