While there is more than enough golf to keep visitors occupied for at least a week, some of the Niseko region’s many other attractions shouldn’t be ignored.
White-water rafting on the Shiribetsu River between April and October is extremely popular, with several operators offering organised group trips. Sea kayaking in the Sea of Japan, especially to the famous Blue Cave near the town of Otaru, is a perennial highlight.
Hiking, cycling, mountain biking and fly-fishing are also popular. And don’t miss Hokkaido’s renowned food experiences at a myriad of local restaurants, as well as onsen – the traditional hot mineral spring baths that can be found all over the island.
