Hokkaido Niseko. River rafting, raft the Shiribetsu River – am and pm tours daily. While in Hokkaido experience the river, the thrills and the excitement of white water rafting down Niseko’s spectacular Shiribetsu River with Niseko Raft. This tour is a scenic adventure with the awesome view of Mt Yotei in the background. The tour begins at the Niseko Raft base. Here we put on all our needed equipment, drysuit, lifejackets and helmets, then onto the bus for the ride to the start point. At the start point your rafting guide will take you thru the safety and paddle briefing. During the hour or so trip down the river, you will have the chance to challenge a number of rapids including the foaming fury of Kappa no Se. Along the way there are plenty of games to play that will have you in and out of the river. Some of the natural attractions that you may come across are the various species of fish that live in the Shirebetsu River, birds that live in the many trees that are on the bank of the river, squirrels, waterfalls and the extraordinary landscape of Yotei-zan and the surrounding area. Once we make it to the goal point, it’s back on the bus with happy faces for the trip back to the Niseko Raft base.
