Join us on a winter adventure!
Put on a pair of snowshoes and set off with our certified guide to discover a white world of ice at the top of the Yatsugatake Mountains. With the Kita-Yatsugatake ropeway, we will reach the mountain top at over 2,000m, then hike all the way to the peak of Mt. Shimagare and back.
It’s a 4.5h satisfying hike that will allow you to see frozen trees, riming, sastrugi and if we are blessed with good weather, a spectacular view on the Alps.
※The guide reserves the right to change the itinerary when he judges it necessary.
