Night Snowshoe Tours & Fondue in Hakuba

Night time in Hakuba. You can stay in your accommodation, which is always a nice chill way to unwind, but if you want to get out and about your options are a bit more limited. There are a lot of great restaurants, but eating as a form of entertainment isn’t the best for the body. You could visit one of the many popular bars in town, but until they ban smoking inside you might not last long. Or you could get out on one of Evergreen’s night snowshoe tours and create memories that will stay with you for years to come.

We at Evergreen are happy to guide you under the bright stars of Hakuba. The walk is not strenuous, but just enough to work up an appetite for dessert fondue under the stars / falling snow. It is not unusual to see wild badgers, rabbits, fox, mink and Kamoshika (Japanese mountain goat) while hiking on our tours.

“Oh what an experience. Walking in thick snow through the forest during the night looking for local wildlife (without success)…experiencing the night sky and sitting down to a chocolate fondue in the snow…just brilliant!”
