Iwate Explorer Tour

Premium Ski & Culture Tours

The Iwate Explorer Tour is the newest tour, and one to be excited for.

Unlike the road-style adventure that is the Northern Odyssey Tour, the Iwate Explorer Tour is one for those that are looking for adventure, but at a slower pace. Whilst exploring untouched Northern Honshu, there is more emphasis on experiencing Japan's rich culture on this tour. 

Based in Morioka for 3 days, and out in Amihari Onsen for 3 more, this tour is more for those who are not wanting to stray too far from the resort, and immerse themselves in all that the Iwate region has to offer. 




Experience the best snow that Iwate has on offer with day trips to some of the best 10 mountains in Northern Honshu.


Weekday Guiding

5x half day guiding sessions with qualified and experienced ski guides.



During your Powder Recon Iwate Explorer Tour you will have the opportunity to stay in premium Japanese hotels.


Lift Passes 

5 single day lift passes included for the local mountains on your Iwate Explorer tour.



Complimentary 4wd transfers to ski resorts each morning and train stations.
