As the pristine Niseko snow melts on the mountain, it means Niseko's river systems burst with fresh, crystal-clear water. Enter, spring rafting in Niseko. Here, discover why white water rafting is something you should try while in Niseko spring.

Enjoy the Great Outdoors

Niseko is a great place to marvel at nature and the great outdoors. Spring is an excellent time to do just that with crisp, clean air and sparkling, fresh water melted from winter's snow flowing down river. Spring rafting is a great way to feel invigorated, to soak up the spring sunshine and take in nothing but deep breaths of fresh air.

Provides an Adrenaline Rush

Rafting is a surefire way to get your heart racing! Feel alive with the hit of adrenaline running through your body as your raft cascades down the rapids. Adrenaline is an amazing thing as it allows you to focus only on the excitement of the experience rather than the physical exercise you're doing which is pretty awesome, right?!

It's a therapeutic sport where you are one with nature along with your friends, family or rafting team. The power of nature lets you relax and leave all of your worries behind you.

Family Bonding

Rafting is a fantastic way for you to bond with your family. We like to call it, family fun time! Let the challenge of riding the rapids bring you closer as you band together to ride all the way down the river. Communication will be key! Create fun, lasting, holidays memories as you ride together as one.

Good for Your Body

Rafting is a great, fun way to get active! It's a terrific all-over body workout as you use muscles to paddle and stablize yourself within the raft. Plus, the adrenaline and energy you use as you ride and paddle will raise your heart rate and get your blood pumping, giving you a fantastic cardio boost, too.

A Whole Lot of Fun

It goes without saying that water rafting is super fun and will have you smiling ear to ear! You'll even be grinning after you hop off your raft when you reach dry land with all of that adrenaline pumping, and who doesn't want that?
