Niseko Spring Activities

  • March 04, 2022

Spring has sprung here in Niseko! The longer, warmer days are perfect for adding a bit of extra  (on and) off mountain activities to your calendar, here are a few of our favorite ways to spend springtime in Niseko:

Ice Cream:

While some folks eat ice cream year round… others might prefer to wait until the temps rise a bit above 0 before indulging in Niseko’s rich ice cream. For the latter group, you’re in luck!

We recommend grabbing a bit of the sweet stuff at local locations like Milk Kobo, Ruhiel or at a location a bit farther afield like Lake Toya’s Lake Hill Farm.

Onsen Tour:

Because what self-respecting “things to do in Niseko” list doesn’t include the suggestion to go to one (or many!) of Niseko’s area onsen.

Veggies at the farmers market:

The Niseko View Plaza is a local icon, and for good reason. Local produce, shops, bakeries offer up tastes of Hokkaido. 

The Niseko area also boasts a number of farmers markets peppered throughout the countryside so you’re bound to find something fresh!

Day trip drives:

The long days of spring are perfect for long(er) drives. Lake Shikotsu, Lake Toya, The Shakotan Peninsula, Otaru & more are all within striking distance of Niseko & perfect destinations for day trips like this one!

Backcountry Tours:

While Niseko is known for deep, blower powder… Spring is still a great time to plan a backcountry tour. Firm snow makes hiking a comparative breeze & the warmer weather can be perfect for packing a picnic (perhaps one that includes some of Niseko’s local beers!)
