Rafting & Water Activities
Rafting trips are an essential experience for anyone visiting Niseko during the warmer months. There are few better ways to immerse yourself in the natural splendour of the areas surrounding Ki Niseko.
Niseko Adventure Centre (NAC) is our recommendation for rafting and other water-based activities during your stay. Niseko's Shiribetsu River affords opportunities for a host of different adventures, whether you are seeking an adrenaline rush or a tranquil float through serene natural surroundings. We can assist you with making bookings for any of the below activities and more. Save 10% off the below rates with your Experience Niseko Passport.
Experience the thrill and excitement of river rafting down the Shiribetsu River. In Spring, the water levels rise, producing thrilling Grade 3-4 rapids. This is the best time for exciting rapids. Summer rafting is more relaxed and family-oriented with Grade 1-2 rapids and spectacular views, perfect for children and beginners.
