La Colina Outdoor

Before settling down in Madarao-Tangram, we spent more than 20 years skiing and working throughout Japanese mountains, from the less-known ski resorts around Lake Biwa and Gifu, the famous Hakuba area, or the by then unlikely-visited resorts of Niseko and Furano. We have supported local mountain guides to offer their services to foreign skiers and snowboarders for the first time, and assisted foreign travel agencies in planning their ski itineraries in Japan as well as acting as their local guides for their customers.

Fast-forward to today, La Colina Outdoor is a licensed travel agency that specializes in tailor-made tours for both our clients and visitors.
