Rafting
Rafting is easily one of Niseko's most loved water sports, and can be enjoyed throughout spring and summer. The beautiful Shiribetsu River runs through Niseko, and provides the ultimate setting for outdoor adventure.
Best Time for This Activity

Spring (Late April – Late May)

As temperatures begin to rise shortly after the winter season, snowmelt causes the Shiribetsu River and its tributaries to swell in volume. Thanks to this, you can face numerous exciting challenges such as high water levels and fast rapids. As a result, many suppliers only allow adults to participate during this period.

Summer (Early June – Mid September)

During summer when the run off from the mountains has eased, you can expect gentler rafting courses. Summer rafting is particularly recommended for families and first timers.
