Description

Experience the beauty of Greenland by heliskiing through its most pristine and remote countryside! Island hop to untouched snow and fly into powder that has never been skied before on this eight-day adventure!

Greenland needs no introduction, and is well-known as a snowy and icy location that not many people have seen before. On the eastern edge of North America, its substantial land mass is full of mountains, ridges, valleys, and glaciers that have rarely been toured, if at all. For thrill seekers who want to discover a new winter wonderland, this is right up your alley.

On the mainland, you can reach the heart of the country and ski terrain that some people can only dream of. In the eastern parts of the country, small islands comprise captivating ski runs that have limited access, so flying in and out is sometimes the only option. Many of the best skiable places are hidden in these hard to reach places, and we are going to take you there!

This program is designed for the pioneers who want to experience a genuine ski expedition in Greenland. There is nothing as exciting as knowing you were the first person to have an unbelievable day heliskiing in a distant land, one that can never be reproduced.

Over the course of a week, you will fly into Tasiilaq and explore the area, which is made up of great steeps, high ridges, and panoramic peaks that would leave anyone breathless. And no island is off-limits, as we will jump between them to ski gorgeous runs with powder, corn, and every other type of impeccable snow.

We have an amazing guesthouse to call home for the eight days, and its location makes it easy to reach all of the best spots in the area. Heading out the door to heliski every morning is breeze, and every inch of snow is yours to explore.

This is a sustained trip, with long days of skiing. You should have a high level of fitness and be in good shape, and have the mental preparation for this adventure. Previous experience is paramount.

The runs and landscape here is amazing, and I would love to show it to you. As your guide, I can ensure you will have a safe time while enjoying an unforgettable vacation heliskiing in an unforgettable country. Depending on your goals and desires, we can take on every challenge Greenland has to offer.
