Drift ice cruise

  • Since the drift ice is a natural phenomenon, there are no guarantees that you will see any.
  • The cruise is subject to cancellation due to a lack of drift ice or bad weather.
  • If you cancel the trip due to the poor drift ice conditions, you will still be charged the standard cancellation fee if any apply.
  • If there is no drift ice on the day, the activity will become a sightseeing cruise around the Okhotsk Sea for 45 minutes. Any difference in cruise fare will be refunded.
  • Should bad weather prevent a cruise of any kind, then the tour will either replace it with another activity or provide you a refund of the cruise fare.

Accommodation

  • All rooms at the Hotel Park Hills, Biei-Shirogane Shikino-mori, are non-smoking. Please use the designated smoking areas.
