Great fun.Highly recommended. Our booking for 8 was increased to 10 at the time of pick up with super efficiency and no fuss - fantastic start. Basant, Michiyo & Charlie could not have been more helpful, patient an gracious. Fantastic half day - highly recommend. They even took us for excellent ramen after the trip!

Our family of 4 (including 2 kids - 6y and 8y) were tired of skiing and wanted to try something different in Niseko. Decided to go rafting with Adventure Smile which was the best decision made. We took a half day trip. They picked us up from One Niseko Resort, where we stayed. Basant was very experienced, fun and friendly as a guide. He used to do rafting in Nepal. We built a snow table, had snowball fights, and did some slightly crazy but super fun things on the raft! His Wife Michiyo was also extremely kind and helpful. My kids absolutely loved it. After the rafting trip, they even kindly brought us to a local lunch spot and came to pick us up one hour later, before bringing us back to the hotel. Excellent service and hospitality. We definitely recommend their tours.

I had a chance to experience the snowshoe tour with Adventure Smile this winter which was soooo much fun. Sliding on the fresh snow, walking on top of the frozen Hangetsu lake and the little picnic we had in the middle was an incredible experience. Also enjoyed the little stories Mr. Basant told along the way.

I booked the winter rafting and snowshoe tours for my family as we were all tired from days of ski lessons and wanted to try something new.
Our guide for the day was Basant and he couldn't have been friendlier. He is also a very experienced guide from Nepal so we felt very safe in his hands.
The river we rafted on was beautiful and we were provided with drysuits to wear over our own clothes so were surprised how warm it was.
It wasn't strenuous at all and the kids loved it.
The snowshoeing tour was just far enough to feel like a real adventure and the views of the frozen lake were beautiful.
Overall I highly recommend Basant and his team and can't wait to join them for more adventures next year!

It is our 3rd visit to Niseko in 3 consecutive year & finally we got to experience winter rafting adventure in Niseko. Basant and Michiyo from Adventure Smile made it a truly memorable and well spent morning for us!
Just as we were losing hope finding an adventure company to conduct the adventure, Michiyo’s instant response to our email truly made our day! From Michiyo’s very thoughtful suggestion to bring the dry suit to our apartment so that it would be easier for us to change in our comfort, suiting us up patiently, Basant’s warm humour, fun tricks on the rapids and his never lacking attention. Most of all, we had a really fantastic time!
Thumbs up for these amazingly fantastic guys!! We will certainly look up Adventure Smile again the next time we are in Niseko! You can be assured you will definitely be in safe hands with them & you will definitely enjoy the adventures with great smile!
