Description

Fly, boat, and sled your way to an amazingly unique and thrilling expedition! Head over to the remote paradise of eastern Greenland for more than a week of prime powder ski touring!

Greenland is a captivating country, full of amazing terrain for ambitious adventurers. Its location and climate make it a perfect place for ski touring and snow sports, particularly those away from resorts, crowds, and anything you might have seen before.

The lack of other skiers and snowboarders means that conditions are perfect for an immersive vacation. There is nothing but untouched snow, and you will have the chance to ski everything from dry powder to corn. And of course, the entire region is yours to see, so expect steeps, couloirs, and everything in between.

Touring the region also allows you to understand the culture of Greenland, which is itself an incredible country and landscape. The first couple of days will have time specifically set aside for enrichment activities, so you can get a hands-on experience with the local community.

The program has an exciting turn every step of the way. You will boat, ski, and fly into the heart of a tour that has thrill after thrill every single day. The rare opportunity to dog sled to a mountain hut where you will explore a remote area for five days via ski touring is truly amazing. This is a once-in-a-lifetime gift that you will remember forever.

This authentic ski touring program is designed for anyone seeking an unforgettable experience. You should be in good physical condition for a sustained trip, and long days will require a high level of skiing. Prior ski touring experience is definitely an asset.

I love this trip, and it would be my pleasure to share my favorite parts of it with you. I will make sure you have the safest, most fun, and most memorable time in a place that not everyone will get to see. If you want less of a commitment but just as much time on pristine terrain, I can help tailor this trip just for you.

Book this unbelievable ski touring program into Greenland and have some of the best eight days of your snow-loving life!

We can also take an eight-day heliskiing adventure in Greenland, too!
