Niseko’s highly experienced outdoor adventure guides offer various packages for school groups, families, and solo rafters for an exciting and unique way to enjoy Niseko.


Ducky is a small type of raft suitable for one to two people at a time. Due to its size, it is much more maneuverable and can be easily directed through white water rapids.

A ducky is similar to a kayak as it uses a two-sided paddle and can be handled in a similar fashion.
