Snow Adventure Tour in Abashiri to See Frozen Waterfall
The icefall is formed each year as small streams of water gets frozen and keeps growing until it becomes a 40-meter tall pillar of ice. This program entails watching the icefall, as well as enjoying the relaxing snowshoeing on the way and seeing the drift ice at the peak season too. ※From December to mid-January the chance of seeing drift ice is extremely low. Instead, it is a time when the process of freezing the waterfall is seen, or the possibility of encountering a seal is high.
