The Japan Alps Trek, Nagano
  • The Japan Alps Trek, Nagano

    The Alps in Nagano are renowned as the Mecca of hiking in Japan. This region is abundant with high altitude mountains and world famous ski resorts, while low altitude terrain flourishes with snowmelt feeding the flora and fauna, creating crystal clear streams, waterfalls, and swamps. Our four day trek ascends from Kamikochi and will follow a 3000m high open ridge connecting Japan's highest mountains with endless 360 degree views. The mountain scenery in the Northern Alps is like nowhere else in Japan.

    This hike makes the most of the Alps in these warmer months when the weather is balmy. We will also be traveling lightweight by staying in mountain lodges. These world class facilities are comfortable and provide freshly cooked meals, while providing a space to meet other hikers and learn from your guide. You will be among the few international visitors to experience the spectacular alpine hiking.
