Northern Odyssey Tour

Premium Ski & Culture Tours

The Northern Odyssey Tour revolves around the incredible terrain that Northern Honshu has to offer. We have curated a trip that incorporates the best resorts in the Iwate and Aomori regions. With over 10 resorts to choose from, our destination is decided daily based on snow and weather conditions. This area is visited almost exclusively by Japanese skiers, which means there are untracked slopes even multiple days after the last snowfall… if you know where to find them. The cold, untouched snow, uncrowded slopes, relaxing onsens and Japanese buffet meals will ensure your ski holiday needs are met!




Experience the best terrain and snowfall Northern Honshu has on offer with day trips to some of the 10 best mountains in Iwate and Aomori.
