Yesterday, the drift ice finally arrived in the sea of Utoro!
Although it has not reached the shore yet, we could clearly see the white band floating across the sea.
The photo was taken today during the Shiretoko Five Lakes Snowshoe Tour .
In Abashiri City, the drift ice came ashore today, 19 days earlier than last year!
We are excited by the gradual approach of the drift ice.
The drift ice walking tour, starting on February 1, has been very popular and we have received many reservations for this season already.
However, there are still spaces available in March.
Check the availability of this tour from here!
Winter’s popular activity, the Shiretoko Drift Ice Walk, is now accepting reservations! For more details, please refer here.
“Picchio” is the Italian word for “woodpecker,” the name of a wild bird that inhabits forests. We believe in preserving forests and their flora and fauna for the future, with the aim of enhancing the value of these forests. As part of our efforts to make more people aware of the positive value of forests inhabited by diverse wildlife, we organize nature experiences and activities in Shiretoko, where you can enjoy encounters with exciting flora and fauna through nature tours and more.
