Just below the Arctic Circle on the west coast of Greenland, lays the region of Maniitsoq and the small town of the same name. This Inuit land which we‘ll explore is surrounded by high mountains, glaciers and ice tongues.
Its spring, mid-April, when we’ll meet you on the ice floes, watched over by strangely shaped icebergs and ready for endless descents plunging down to the fjords. In this strikingly dramatic landscape, the infinite but diverse ski terrain remains wild.
You’ll traverse glaciers, valleys and narrow gullies covered in perfect powder, with an added bonus of an almost 24 hour day! A breathtaking adventure.
4 clients per guide – 7 day programme
Day 1 :
You’ll be met at Maniitsoq airport and driven to the hotel. The transfer time is only 5 min. at the most!
After lunch, you’ll have time to get settled and have a look around. At the end of the day, we‘ll have a safety review as well as check and prepare the equipment.
Dinner will be at the hotel followed by a good night’s sleep so that we’re ready for the next big day.
Days 2 to 7 :
Each day we‘ll head towards either the port or the heliport, as the access to the slopes is by sea or by air. Your comfort is taken into consideration in every aspect of organization, with even the port and heliport located very near the hotel.
We’ll discover new terrain every day, as this vast territory offers almost infinite possibilities. The awesome skiing amidst this wild and grandiose nature will delight your eyes and your skis.
At midday we’ll take a picnic break and while enjoying a view of the sea.
Evenings on the island will be just as enjoyable, with a great dinner at the hotel, followed by a famous Greenlandic coffee to warm up.
On days when the weather doesn’t permit flying, we’ll have other alternatives, for example ski touring, whale watching or kayaking.
Day 8 :
It’s already time to go home … After an early breakfast at the hotel, we’ll drive you to the airport.
For trips to polar climates, flexibility remains the key word. This programme is subject to change, depending on ice, weather and local conditions.
“Heliski Russia and Kamchtaka make for a trip of a lifetime : one you’d love to repeat each and every winter. The best heliskiing experience ever with exhilarating descents surrounded by a dramatic wilderness of ice and fire. Very hard to beat… You’ve got to go !”
