The Great Teshio River Journey (天塩川旅) is one of Japan's iconic multi-day canoe trips, located in northern Hokkaido. With 160km of dam- and weir-free paddling, it's the longest canoe trip in Hokkaido. Paddlers can expect to see native Hokkaido deer, plenty of kingfishers, and white-tailed eagles along the way, as they re-trace the steps of Hokkaido's earliest Japanese settlers. With small towns along the river, camping is easy and re-stocking is a breeze. There's also hot-spring facilities en route, easily accessible on foot from canoe ports on the river. Daily distances are around 20km and the rapids are easily navigable even for beginner paddlers.
