What’s Hakuba like in the summer is one of the more common questions that seasoned locals are asked during winter.
As the snow slowly recedes to higher altitude and the winter weather changes to spring sunshine, the cherry blossoms come out, the rivers flow and the landscape begins to change and it’s time to enjoy some other adventures.
Adventures and activities which will take your breath away as most of them enable you to take in the beautiful scenery, wildlife and the glorious views. Including; road cycling, mountain biking, hiking, tree adventure, white water rafting, kayaking, canyoning, and of course paragliding from the peaks of Hakuba just to name a few.
This past summer has seen Iwatake Snow Field literally transform their mountain to make some of the best MTBing courses in Japan if not the all of Asia. And it won’t stop there with more courses planned in the next few years. Will Iwatake become busier in summer than winter?
There are a few excellent businesses in the resort that maybe you have used on your trip this winter to help you get the best of your Hakuba adventure vacation. They offer services to make the most of your time in the green season too, including Evergreen Outdoor Center and Hakuba Lion Adventure.
Of course you could also take it easier by just enjoy the towering alps, take a leisurely stroll or cycle around town, work on your photography skills or even just catch up on a book or two at one of the laid back coffee shops.
With flights to Japan being as cheap as they have ever been, Hakuba is the perfect place for your adventure getaway and once you are here Hakuba offers a genuine vacation experience at the right price.
We look forward to seeing you in the Hakuba Valley over the warmer months to try your hand at some of the great adventures and experiences on offer.
