One of Niseko’s best kept secrets is the terrific array of summer activities on offer. With average summer temperatures hovering in the mid-twenties and low humidity, Niseko is tailor made for outdoor sports. Some of the most popular Niseko summer activities include, white water rafting, golf, hiking, fly fishing and mountain biking.
For the avid bush walker there are miles of trails through the mountains around Niseko. For the super-fit, try hiking to the top of the beautiful extinct volcano, Mt.Yotei. This is a 6 hour hike and not for the faint hearted! If this sounds a little advanced, catch the Gondola to the top of Mt. Annipuri and walk back down. The views of Mt.Yotei and Niseko Hirafu village are spectacular!
Rafting is a huge spring and summer sport in Niseko. Each year thousands of adventure seekers come from all around Japan, and further abroad, to ride the Shiribetsu River. During Spring, the huge snow melt causes the icy waters to tumble down the river, creating a white water thrill ride, strictly for adrenalin junkies. During summer the Shiribetsu flows at a more languid pace and is more suitable for family rafting adventures.
If golf is more your speed, there are four championship golf courses within 10 minutes drive of the Niseko Hirafu area. (Niseko Tokyu, Hilton Niseko Village, Niseko Golf Course and Niseko Golf and Resort). All of the local golf courses are beautifully manicured, boast spectacular views and are world class.
