Finding a base for adventures in Hokkaido

From ski-in, ski-out lodges to city center apartments, Hokkaido vacation rentals can put you on the spot for all sorts of adventures in Japan's northernmost prefecture. No matter whether you've come to skim down the sides of snowy volcanos and carve through plumes of the fabled Hokkaido powder, to hit the bubbling beer breweries of Sapporo or hike amid wildflowers and mirror-like mountain lakes, there's bound to be a pad to suit. Some fringe beautiful national parks while others lurk in urban areas, going from chic, modern flats to timber-built country boltholes.

Things to do

Hokkaido's a chocolate box of national parks

Pack the hiking boots, the salopettes and the snow gear for this destination – Hokkaido is Japan's outdoorsy gem. You can bag Hokkaido vacation rentals close to national parks. And there are loads of them. Akan National Park is one of the most famous, lauded for its trio of amazing lakes and ponds, glimmering in turquoise and emerald between primeval forests. UNESCO have even tagged the Shiretoko National Park, a place to strap on the sandals and clamber up naturally-warm rivers. Then there's Daisetsuzan National Park, Japan's largest. It's peppered with mountain peaks, dotted with hot springs and ringed with hiking trails.

Activities

Hokkaido's wild outdoors beckon

Folk who love winter sports will love Hokkaido. From mid-December to late-April, this diamond-shaped island, right on the northern fringes of Japan, becomes a veritable Mecca for skiers and snowboarders. They come from right across the globe, attracted by the promise of the legendary Hokkaido powder – said to be the finest snow anywhere on Earth. Of course, there's also plenty to do if you don't hit the pistes. You can hop between raucous beer bars in brew-mad Sapporo, hike and bike through the wooded reaches of national parks, go camping and bathe in mountain hot springs – there's loads.

Weather

Waiting for the snows in Hokkaido

It's no secret that Hokkaido is a winter Mecca. Skiers and boarders will clamber for the best ski-in, ski-out Hokkaido vacation rentals in the major mountain resorts between December and March, when excellent snow coverage is all but guaranteed. In summer, between June and August, demand continues for places in the country because of world-class hiking trails through the verdant forests, past shimmering lakes and hot springs. Spring and fall, in months like May and September, are great times to come if you're only looking to explore cities like Sapporo

Natural features

Hokkaido is Japan's nature playground

Ask any Hokkaido local and they'll tell you – their island is the wildest and most beautiful in the country. It's not just home bias, either. You'll see why the first time you spy out the reflective waters of hidden Lake Mashu, surrounded by pointed peaks and old-growth pine forests. You'll see why as you skim across snow plumes in the shadow of Asahi-dake, 2,200-meters high and tucked between the sinewy peaks of the Daisetsuzan National Park. A whopping 7 national parks converge here, heralding waterfalls, forests where bears tread, hot springs, snowy volcanos – the list of wonders goes on.
