Birchwood - Summer Seasons

Spring and Summer

As the snow melts, the landscape explodes with wild flowers making Niseko a perfect base for hiking. Enjoy the crisp clean air as you ramble across the moors or climb Mount Yotei to enjoy a 360 degree panorama from the trail that winds around the caldera.

Play a round of golf while enjoying glorious scenery and spectacular views of Mount Yotei at Niseko Village Golf Course, which was named Japan's Best Golf Course at the World Golf Awards in 2014.

Treat the whole family to a day of fun at Pure at Niseko Village – a nature activity centre with the longest zip line in Japan. You can also enjoy horse riding, panoramic views of Mount Yotei and the Niseko mountain range from a hot air balloon. The little ones will love ‘Pure’ Adventure the park’s newest attraction which has an inflatable playground filled with mazes and slides.

Regularly hosting Japan's largest cycling race – the 'Tour de Hokkaido' Niseko is a popular cycling destination with a wide variety of trails suitable for all levels, including exhilarating downhill mountain trails via gondola. Got something more leisurely in mind? Quiet country lanes are ideal for gentle family biking.

Picturesque lakes and rivers make fresh water fishing, canyoning and rafting popular summer pastimes. Shiribetsu River offers some of the best rafting in Asia and you can expect stunning alpine scenery and crystal clear water. Alternatively, head to the nearby Shakotan Peninsula where sea kayaking reveals a magical ocean colour known as Shakotan blue.

    One of the best Airbnbs we have stayed at. The house is beautiful, spacious, clean and modern. Easy checkin/entry, the house was professionally cleaned every other day, the kitchen was stocked with almost everything you needed and the Elite Havens management team was super responsive, plus we loved that they provided a complimentary shuttle to and from town. The house was perfectly located for us as we snowboarded/skied at Niseko and Rusutsu. It’s also just a 5 minute drive to the center of Hirafu, so extremely convenient and great if you do want to stay in a more peaceful environment, yet close to the center. This place was perfect.

    Thank you so much for sending us here as well as arranging the logistics Rochil. Very helpful!! @Elite Havens Niseko @Rochi! We had an amazing stay at Andrew’s house. Much better than we expected in the following aspects: 1. Elite Haven's Rochil helped us with pre-arrival logistics and helped us book all tickets, rentals as well as commute tickets. Super responsive 2. Shuttle between Birchwood and resorts - this is so much more convenient than renting your own car and driving yourself for a 6-person group. They always arrive on time and pick us up at most of the spots between 8am-6pm. They even had exceptions for us post 6pm when we had trouble booking taxis. Very sweet and friendly ground team. 3. The house is super NEW with good quality facilities. It was really stylish as well as AMAZING view!!! They have almost everything from dish washer, coffee machine, laundry etc 4. House keeping everyday - this is the first airbnb place I have ever stayed that offers house keeping everyday which makes the place clean and tidy. In all, we had a good stay and will definitely recommend others to stay here. It made my first Niseko trip wonderful.

    Great house with Amazing french windows in the living room and the dining room - facing the outside view. It also has the coziest kitchen. It's surrounded by wood and snow - which contribute to a beautiful snowy landscape. The most important thing is everyone in Elite Havens is quite cheerful and charming. We had a memorable time in Birchwood.

    It is our greatest pleasure to be the first guest. The house is so lovely with a great view - both mountains and forest view (though no leaves). We spent great nights in living room - the floor is warm and Apple TV brought us fun and enjoyment. All the facilities are new and high quality. Enjoyed everything in the house - Andrew's welcome also appreciated. Shall visit again.
