What to Expect

Visiting two ice villages in one day makes for a full and jam-packed schedule, but this is a winter-wonderland adventure that we fully recommend making the most of. These ice villages only exist in the winter season.  

Please enjoy a drink in the Ice Bar in Lake Shikaribetsu. You can also feel the freezing wind coming towards your face by driving the snowmobiles. If you think that it is not exciting enough, the outdoor Ice Hot Spring in Lake Shikaribetsu is a must to try! Please don’t worry, so far we haven’t heard of someone frozen to death in the Ice Hot Spring! (Remember to bring your own towel)

Then we will go the Tomamu Ice Village to enjoy the elegant and fantastic scenery. You will be satisfied by both indoor and outdoor activities there. You can enjoy some greatrefreshments in the Ice Books & Café. For example, there are ice desserts and latte in ice glasses. It will be a funny experience to have “Ice Meal” inside while outside is about -20°C. And because of the extremely cold weather, please prepare yourselves enough warm clothing!

I had a wonderful day tour with Travel Hokkaido to Lake Shikaribetsu Kotan and Tomamu Ice Village in winter. Peta and her husband are very friendly and they also provided great lunch bento! しかりべつ湖コタンとトマムアイスヴィレッジへ行きました。とてもよかったです。PetaさんとOchanさんは優しくて、たくさん話をしました。昼ごはんのお弁当も素敵でした。

It took about 10-11 hours. For our case, we started around 10.40 am and we got back to Sapporo Train Station Exit North around 11 pm. They use a minivan with max People : 15. This tour only available between Jan - Mar. ;)
