Experience the rich nature of Lake Shikotsu and enjoy the lakeside hot spring at Marukoma Onsen with direct transfer to New Chitose Airport.


This tour first takes you to the Northern most ice-free lake “Lake Shikotsu”, Marukoma Hot Spring and a registered game reserve.
“Lake Shikotsu” is well known for the clarity of its water and the second deepest lake after Lake Tazawa. Due to its depth, it is said that it became the northernmost ice-free lake in Japan. Untouched nature remains around Lake Shikotsu where visitors can feel crisp air of Hokkaido of winter.
Then on to a lakefront hotel founded in 1915 of Taisho era, you can enjoy the hot spring. The natural open-air bath is connected to the lake, and it has an interesting characteristic; the bath level is the same level as the lake. As this tour includes stopovers at New Chitose Airport and Minami Chitose Station (nearby the Chitose Outlet Mall Rera) on the way back to Sapporo Station Bus Terminal, it is convenient for tourist to arrange the time schedule for connecting flights.
