Summer Curated Journeys
Looking for a place to reconnect closer to nature? Let the adventure begin with a family trek along one of the most beautiful marshes in Niseko or try your hand at rafting along the Shiribetsu River, one of Hokkaido's clearest rivers. After a delicious lunch, it is time to take a more relaxed pace spending the afternoon visiting Niseko Ostrich Farm, home to over 60 ostriches, you will be amazed to see them running free across the ranch. Your little explorers will love to try Doraemon's favourite sweet; a delicious dorayaki made from ostrich eggs.
Love is in the air, literally. For the ultimate aerial adventure you will never forget, take your trip to new heights with a bird’s eye view from a hot air balloon or snap some stunning shots on a summertime Annupuri gondola ride. Disconnect from the world, and reconnect as a couple, as it’s time to round off the perfect day with a private hot spring bath experience, or perhaps get pampered with one of our signature full body spa treatments in our double treatment room, followed by a specially curated romantic dinner in one of our fine dining restaurants. Offering the perfect combination of wellness, rejuvenation and romance; a stay at Setsu is the ultimate destination to be swept off your feet.

Three Seasons in One
Spring in Niseko unveils a rare and special time of the year when you can enjoy the adventures of three seasons in just one memorable trip. Imagine kicking off your holiday skiing under the magnificent clear bluebird skies, and experiencing the adrenaline rush of white water rafting along Niseko’s winding rivers. Take to the open road and slowly explore the seasons' unfolding landscapes with a road trip hunting down the regions finest cherry blossoms. Taking time to sample Hokkaido’s tastiest seasonal produce in the region’s many cafes and restaurants along the way. Finally complete your holiday, swinging 18 holes in one of Niseko's many picturesque golf courses. The holiday of a lifetime.
The colourful blanket of autumn foliage always falls upon Hokkaido first and believe us, it is worth a visit. Enjoy trekking around Lake Hangetsu, a half moon shaped lake at the foot of Mount Yotei or visit Fukidashi Park, the perfect spot for a relaxed afternoon stroll, popular amongst locals for its cold spring water straight from Mount Yotei. When the slopes of Mount Annupuri turn a dramatic crimson, it’s time to grab your camera and take to the hills for an unforgettable hike. Definitely a season that you will fall in love with.
