Note: Due to the wild and remote nature of Greenland, the below itinerary is subject to change and flexibility will be required.
Fly from Reykjavik to Kulusuk. We will enjoy lunch when we arrive in Greenland. Following, a short tour to introduce the area, including a safety briefing.
Following a hearty breakfast, a snowmobile transfer takes us to our first mountain objective. There are many great peaks we can ski during our time together, so we will choose based on our interests and the conditions.
After the day’s adventure, snowmobile transfer back to the village.
Another exciting day of skiing based on where the best conditions are. In the evening, we relax in the village and enjoy delicious fresh meals
We pack the snowmobiles and head to the wilderness. Most likely, we will explore the peaks above Apuslaajik Glacier, meaning that we first must ascend past the calving face of the glacier, a truly magisterial sight.
Once we summit and enjoy the incredible views of the vast glacial wilderness, we have several options we can take, from very steep to more moderate.
In the evening, we return to our remote wilderness hut.
Today we have the full day for ski touring around our remote wilderness hut.
Options include: the mountains surrounding Apuslaajik Glacier or crossing a valley and skiing some lovely bowls in the mountains to the south.
We return at the remote wilderness hut for the night.
We head out on another ski tour day. While we’re out, our team will collect our gear and return it to Kulusuk, where we will end the day in our lodge.
Our last full day of skiing. We have several options – either snowmobiling to another nearby peak, or beginning from the village itself we may explore the lovely peak of Qalorajaarneq, which has incredible views across the island.
One final evening in the village – you can choose a peaceful, quiet evening or, if you’d like, the weekly village party.
Transfer out and flight to Reykjavik, where services end. Choose to spend some time exploring the charming capital of Iceland or continue on to your home country.
Nanoq Lodge in the tiny village of Kulusuk, with a couple nights in a remote wilderness lodge.
IFMGA/UIAGM high mountain guide, based in Kulusuk, East Greenland.
I am from Scotland, where I grew up between the hills and kayaking. My first trip to Greenland was at 19 and it took me no time at all to fall in love with the place. I was on a mountaineering expedition, and it was the first of more than 25 I've done so far. I have skied and climbed in many places around the world, but Eastern Greenland remains my favourite. I feel like home in its glaciers, mountains and fjords.
You may think it's boring to go so many times to the same place. Not at all! The land is huge and there are endless possibilities. My trips have included everything: kayaking in the fjords, sailing to remote corners, dog-sledding to reach virgin slopes...
My passion is the mountains, which is why I specialized in different disciplines over time. Ice climbing, telemark and exploratory alpinism are some of them. I particularly love ski mountaineering and free skiing.
The motivation behind it all is to live the best adventures in stunning and wild places, and to share them with people that love this as well.
