Designated as a Geopark due to its rare landforms and geological formations, Toyako (Lake Toya) has four caldera's in the middle of it, a highly unusual sight.

The Noboribetsu Hell Valley is named because of the heavy volcanic activity, such as hot steam vents and sulfurous streams. As the walking trails in the hills may not be accessible in winter, take the opportunity in summer to explore the valley. Next is Lake Shikotsu, the second deepest lake in Japan, famous for its crystal clarity.

Visit Hokkaido's summer attractions on this one-day tour with English and Chinese audio guidance!
