If you have been researching Niseko and are planning on visiting for a well earned holiday, then it is likely that you have already made many discoveries on what is available to enjoy in the area. Niseko is known globally for its high annual snowfall, and it is the one place on earth where naturally-occurring powder snow is a sure thing, boasting the second largest average snowfall of anywhere in the world, the district averages around 15 metres of snow annually.
With masses of light powder snow on the slopes in the area, it is not surprising that Niseko’s winters are focused around floating waist-deep through deep powder snow. Niseko is however much more than just a powder snow destination and a vacation during the green season delivers as many if not more surprises than a visit in winter. There are world-class golf courses, relaxing geothermal hot springs, road cycling events, mountain bike parks and fishing in the local waterways. Whitewater rafting, canoeing, SUP and trekking are very popular and accessible, and everywhere you turn. Fantastic local food and summer festivals are also one of the major attractions.
With the research complete, this is the right time to decide to include Niseko as one of the destinations you visit when you visit Hokkaido.
