A three-hour drive from Sapporo airport, Niskeo Village is a glamorous yet serene hamlet surrounded by farmlands, flower fields, and forests of birch trees, with fantastic views of Mount Yotei looming in the distance. Our Niseko Village chalets offer guests a relaxed, back-to-nature setting, just minutes from all the action of the four interconnected ski resorts (Niseko Village, Hirafu, Hanazono, and Annupuri) that make up Niseko United. Known as the powder capital of Japan, Niseko receives a fresh blanket of snow nearly every day of the ski season (December to April) luring winter sports aficionados from around the world.
Our chalets in Niseko Village are less than four kilometres away from Niseko Village Ski Resort, and all elite havens here include a complimentary on-call driver for the short trip to and from the gondolas of both Niseko Village and neighbouring Hirafu Village (winter only).
Though each Elite Havens' chalet has a well-equipped kitchen for your use, you may prefer to order delicious meals or provisions for cooking via Niseko Gourmet. They also offer private dining experiences and can set up a magical meal within your villa, with a professional chef crafting a delectable meal, just for you.
Niskeo Village and neighbouring Soga area are home to several restaurants, including Niseko Loft Club, a fun Mongolian barbecue-style experience, and Mandriano, a pizza restaurant adjoining the cheese factory of Takahashi Dairy Farm, which also sells a variety of fresh farm produce and homemade treats. The atmospheric Crab Shack has a great selection of fresh local seafood, and Michelin-starred Japanese eatery, Raukuichi Soba is always busy. Those in search of exciting nightlife will enjoy the buzz of nearby Hirafu Village, which has steadily risen to become a trendy, world-class tourism centre. You can sing your heart out at a traditional karaoke bar, or head to quirky Bar Gyu for live jazz and rare Japanese whiskeys.
Although the ski season stretches well into late spring, the forests of Niseko Village are the gateway to spectacular backcountry, offering plenty of outdoor activities all year-round. Bask in the sunshine and enjoy glorious views as you play a round of golf at award-winning Niseko Village Golf Course, soak in one of the many onsen (thermal hot springs) that the region is famous for, or treat the kids to tree-top adventures and horse riding at Pure in Niseko Village. Adrenalin junkies can climb breathtaking Mount Yotei, cycle down volcanic slopes or experience the thrill of white water rafting on the Shiribetsu river. One thing is for sure, no matter what the season, you will never run short of things to do in Niseko.
