The Japanese Alps Trek, Nagano - 6 days | 4 day hike

Picture yourself traversing over 3000m/ 9850ft high ridgelines connecting Japan’s tallest mountains trailing off endlessly into the distance with dramatic 360 degree views.

The Alps in Nagano is like nowhere else in Japan. While it is best known to the international community for world famous ski resorts, to the Japanese it is equally known as the Mecca of hiking. While the high altitude mountains offer unrivalled scenery, the real magic is the multi-day hiking experience available to those “in the know”. Thanks to comfortable mountain hut accommodation providing bedding and fresh meals, you are afforded the luxury of travelling light each day & waking up in the clouds.
