Airport Transfer Options
Charter Bus Transfers (5000Yen/person)
Charter buses operate regular service between New Chitose airport and Niseko or Furano. This is a convenient and inexpensive transfer option particularly if you are in a small group.
Please see below for additional details on what flight times buses are available to meet.
Private Transfers (Price varies depending on Group Size)
Private transfers are available on demand and will meet your flight regardless of time. Private transfers are convenient, offer door to door service and if you are arriving with a group of people the price difference is not as significant as you may think. They are however considerably more expensive if you are arriving alone or in a small group.
Please note that the transfer to Niseko takes 2.5 – 3 hours so if you are considering a private transfer to meet a late arriving flight, it will be very late when you arrive at your final destination.
While both Furano and Niseko can be accessed by train, the rail route is indirect which results in a slower and more expensive transfer than bus transfers.
We do however recommend the train as a fast, convenient and cheap way to transfer to/from Sapporo or Asahikawa and the airport. Please note that trains can unfortunately not be pre-booked.
