I recently went on a seven day custom tour - my first post-COVID trip. Hokkaido Nature Tours was FANTASTIC. The itinerary was perfect; an excellent blend of hiking, spectacular sights, and cool activities. We climbed live volcanoes, trekked to beautiful waterfalls, and ate so much delicious food. It was one of the best trips of my life. Ido is a brilliant trip planner and has all the inside tips on everything from activities to food to sights and wildlife. Absolutely recommend!!

Thank you so much for the great review Susan! 🙏🙏🙏 It was an absolute pleasure to create and guide your tour. We were able to include an astounding amount of nature and hiking into your week with us thanks to your boundless energy and love of discovery. We are deeply grateful that you entrusted us with your time in Hokkaido after the covid emergency ended. As you experienced, Hokkaido remains an incredible destination, perhaps even moreso with only us locals around 🙋 We're sure to see you here in Hokkaido again soon, and we can't wait! Best regards from Ido & team HNT ⭐️👐💯

We did a 7 Day Tour to East Hokkaido. Everything was very expertly handled. The itinerary was interesting without being too packed. The accommodation was well chosen, and the food excellent. Our guide and driver Tak was knowledgeable and paced the tour well. He is a very calm and careful driver. He handled the changes to our schedule caused by road closures (avalanche, floods) and coronavirus restrictions very professionally.

Dear Heyaoming, Thank you for the wonderful review; we appreciate it! We were relieved that your tour was not negatively affected by Coronavirus and you were able to fully enjoy the week with Tak as your guide. His expert knowledge of Eastern Hokkaido was very beneficial as regards to the avalanche-related road closures as well. Thank you again for entrusting us with your tour during these turbulent times. We are all striving to put our best foot forward even now, and will continue to do our best in the future. Please take care, stay strong & healthy, and hope to see you again in the future! Best regards, Ido, Tak & the HNT Team

We recently did a six night Winter Wonderland tour with Hokkaido Nature Tours. It truly was a week in a lifetime! Yukiko was very helpful in the booking process, and kept us up to date as the tour approached. Payment went through smoothly (a relief given fairly large sums of money involved). Our guide Tak was fantastic, his driving was safe even in the most difficult of conditions. And he was able to adapt the tour to suit us and as the weather dictated. We experienced nature as we’ve never seen it before, ate fresh delicious food (some of the best seafood imaginable) and did activities we never thought we would (the dogsledding!). The Abishiri Drift Ice festival was a highlight, we loved the cranes and spotting foxes, dears and eagles as we drove. Accomodation at the Yoroushi Onsen (we got to see the owl!) and the Abishiri Lake Hotel was great. A few of the other hotels weren’t so great, but I think there are limited hotels choices in some areas. We feel that what was promised on the itinerary by Hokkaido Nature Tours was well and truly delivered. I would highly recommend Hokkaido Nature Tours to anyone who wants to explore everything that this beautiful part of the world has to offer.

We are the group from Italy that recently came to Hokkaido. We were very happy with our experience in Japan, Hokkaido is an amazing island. The Nature and Snow Festivals were really beautiful. We would like to thank you Hokkaido Nature Tours, our guide Ichi san and our driver Sato san because of their professionality and their effort to make our trip perfect.

Dear Maria, Thank you for the great review; we appreciate it! We're very happy that the group enjoyed the Eastern Hokkaido wildlife and nature tour with us last month! The weather was great, lots of wildlife to be spotted this year, and of course the food & hospitality all top-notch. We loved seeing the positive energy from the group members who seems to enjoy every day of the tour. We also are keeping your group in our thoughts & prayers as some of them must be caught up in the lock-down currently underway to control the spread of Coronavirus. Hopefully this difficult period will end soon and life will return to normal. Thank you again for choosing us for your tour in Hokkaido, and we look forward to another great tour with your group next year! Please remain safe & healthy until we meet again. Best regards, Ido, Yuichi & the HNT Team

We had a 3.5 day trip though east and central Hokkaido with Yas. He was kind, considerate and enthusiastic throughout. We appreciated his careful driving on icy roads - and getting us to interesting places. We especially loved the wild onsen, foot onsen and snow shoeing to see the frozen waterfalls. Seeing cranes in the wild, as well as at feeding stations, was a joy! The company is an excellent choice - with great attention to detail, from the first contact through to delivery of photos after the tour.

Dear Eli C, Thank you very much for the wonderful review. We appreciate it! Great to hear that you enjoyed the private tour with Yas guiding. Eastern Hokkaido is magical in winter, and your favorites are shared by us as well: snowshoeing, wild onsens, crane & wildlife spotting, not to mention scenery, food & accommodations. Thank you again for choosing us for your tour in Hokkaido. We put great effort to ensure that each of our tours is a success, through out detail-oriented tour planning & pre-tour preparations, to our excellent hand-picked team of guides, to post-tour communication : It's the way we believe private tours should be! Hope to see you again on a future trip to Hokkaido. Please keep in touch! Best regards, Ido, Yas & the HNT Team
