Hot air ballooning
Catch some air swaying in the vast sky knowing no bounds
The Hokkaido sky is vast.
Anyhow it is different in the heart of big cities like in Sapporo but in many towns, your field of vision won’t be obstructed by skyscrapers, instead you will be able to admire the endless skies. Wouldn’t you like to roam such skies? And then you may want to gaze at the sea in the distance and the magnificent earth below.
Standard duration and prices: tethered ride = 5 minutes is ¥2,100-¥2,500, untethered ride = 30 minutes (ride time only) - ¥20,000. There are also occasions when rides are cancelled due to weather. Firstly, make reservation.
Eastern Hokkaido is such a place that if you want to see a sky full of stars, you just need to distance yourself a little bit from the city. In the pitch-black darkness, gaze at the celestial bodies which look as if they spill over from the heavens. Wouldn’t you want to spend such a romantic and luxurious moment with someone special like a family member, a sweetheart or a friend?
Haven’t you ever thought once in your life that you wished you could fly in the sky like a bird? That dream comes true in eastern Hokkaido. Yes, you carry a parachute on your back instead of wings and fly high in the sky. You can try paragliding in Tokachi and parasailing in the winter in Furano. Now, let’s become a bird in the northern vast skies.
