Spring and Summer

Aoyama Lodge - Hot spring water

Autumn in Hokkaido is a special time, as the leaves change colours across the countryside. It is the perfect time for a hike or drive, taking photos to capture the unrivalled beauty of Hokkaido’s autumn leaves.

Play a round of golf while enjoying glorious scenery and spectacular views of Mount Yotei at Niseko Village Golf Course, which was named Japan's Best Golf Course at the World Golf Awards in 2014.

Treat the whole family to a day of fun at Pure at Niseko Village – a nature activity centre with the longest zip line in Japan. You can also enjoy horse riding, panoramic views of Mount Yotei and the Niseko mountain range from a hot air balloon. The little ones will love ‘Pure’ Adventure the park’s newest attraction, which has an inflatable playground, filled with mazes and slides.

Regularly hosting Japan's largest cycling race – the 'Tour de Hokkaido' Niseko is a popular cycling destination with a wide variety of trails suitable for all levels, including exhilarating downhill mountain trails via gondola. Got something more leisurely in mind? Quiet country lanes are ideal for gentle family biking.

Picturesque lakes and rivers make fresh water fishing, canyoning and rafting popular summer pastimes. Shiribetsu River offers some of the best rafting in Asia and you can expect stunning alpine scenery and crystal clear water. Alternatively, head to the nearby Shakotan Peninsula where sea kayaking reveals a magical ocean colour known as Shakotan blue.

  • We had a wonderful time in this elegant, quiet space. The Elite Havens hosts were ultra helpful in all things (ski handling, transportation, advice, etc.). Would recommend to any group skiing Niseko and the surrounding area!

  • What a fabulous holiday. Aoyama Lodge is superb - great space, great views and a great location to enjoy Hirafu and Annupuri. The Elite Havens staff were superb - from Theresa in reservations, to the staff driving us to and from the slopes, to the cleaning crew who swept through the house everyday. Thank you! Highlight of the week was the in-villa 7-course dining experience. Fantastic from Niseko Gourmet and Chef Tanaka San. Recommend hiring a car to get to Rusutsu - empty slopes - superb snow. Back next year!
