Description

I invite you to the first heliski base camp in Greenland. Enjoy this heliskiing guided trip around the best fjords of the Arctic Circle!

Greenland has unique landscapes that will make you fall in love as soon as you get out of the helicopter. Untouched snow terrains, ocean, glaciers and the Eternity Fjord are the perfect setting for this once in a lifetime adventure.

During this 8-day trip, we’ll be based on the west coast of Maniitsoq, a small island with colorful houses.

As peaks exceed 2000 m of height, you’ll be skiing down from a really high altitude. Furthermore, you’ll have the stunning blue sea on your side all the time. And you may even see some whales!

Either on a speedboat or on a helicopter, we’ll reach different spots of the Greenland archipelago every day. Besides, we’ll go off piste skiing in wild and remote areas. During the afternoons, you can enjoy some ski touring or snowboarding.

You can find some extra details on this trip below this description.
