If you plan to have a break from skiing then there is a variety of activities available to suit all tastes. For the more adventurous, back-country tours are available to explore the endless and untouched terrain within the Valley. For those in need of a deep soak to relax sore muscles, Hakuba boasts a variety of fantastic onsens to suit all budgets and modesty levels - with the option to book private onsens if preferred. If staying in Wadano we highly recommend the onsens at Mominoki Hotel or Tokyu Hotel. If you happen to be staying in the other end of the Valley at Goryu, try the beautiful Genryu No Yu onsen and soak outside in the warm waters as snowflakes fall around you.
Our top recommendation when visiting the Nagano region includes tours to see the world-famous Jigokudani Snow Monkeys. We can arrange full day coach tours which will take you to visit the monkeys, have lunch in a sake brewery and stop in at Nagano's Zenkoji temple - can you find the key to paradise in Zenkoji's underground passage?
