Fishing

Hokkaido is a well-known seafood paradise so why not try a fishing experience yourself, since you are already in the best place to enjoy fish. Our local guide can curate your fishing experience based on your skill level and your preference for river or ocean fishing.

This family-friendly activity is a good way to enjoy Niseko's natural landscapes, while learning how to navigate the river and fish for your favourite breed, from rainbow trout to landlocked salmon. Depending on the weather and season, our experienced local guides can take you to the perfect spot to get the best catch. All tours come with all the fishing gear you need to enjoy the experience.
