Highlights

 
     

    Discover the last great wilderness in the world. Join me for an exciting 10-day adventure and enjoy 7 full days of skiing and sailing in the Polar Circle, along the south-west coast of Greenland.

    This trip will take you to impressive settings of nature, almost untouched by man.

    After an evening in Copenhagen and the long flight westwards, the starting point of this exciting week of ski touring will be Nuuk. The small capital of Greenland lies at the southern tip of the island, at the mouth of a deep fjord surrounded by mountains.

    During this adventure, we’ll explore the coast northwards, anchoring in a different bay each evening. 

    In our search for the best runs and snow, we may find deep powder as well as delicious and easy spring snow.

    Besides, we’ll stay on a refurbished trawler specially adapted for Polar cruises. This will be our warm and comfortable home during the trip.

    Our warm and comfortable home during the trip will be a sturdy sailing boat specially adapted for Polar cruises, under the safe guidance of a seasoned skipper with several round-the-world trips under his belt

    From the deck you’ll see a breathtaking landscape of islands, fjords, impressive glaciers, icebergs and mountains rising directly from the sea, with peaks above 2000 m.

    The easy ascents begin at sea level and go up to 800 to 1300 m. At the end of a climbing day, vast virgin slopes will bring you back to the shore, where the Zodiac awaits.

    Back on board, there’ll be time to relax in the privacy of your cabin. Or even to discuss the day around a drink in the saloon, while the boat quietly departs for the next destination.

    Please contact me if you want to join me for this amazing trip in Greenland. I will be happy to be your guide for this unique experience!

    You can also check other ski touring programs I offer in other impressive destinations like Kamchatka and Lofoten, in Norway.

    About the Guide

     
     

    With my name I can’t make you believe that I am mountaineer of origin! I am a breton migrant worker who was stranded in the Pyrénées and later in the Alps…
    What I like most of my job is the incredible mountain’s support to weave the real relationships in a short time and often the quality with people whom I guide to these beautiful summits. It is with a great pleasure that I put at your disposal my 25 years of experience in the climbing, mountaineering and skiing playgrounds to guide you in your adventure projects. I am also ski instructor and mountain rescuer. See you soon!

     
     
     

     

    What People are Saying about Goulven Cuzon

     

    Overall the experience was great - Xavier really knew the local area catered to everyones abilities in the group and offered some great advice. I would love to book another day trip (or maybe even a multi day trip!) with Xavier so I could experience some of the peace and quiet you get away from the piestes in the remote areas of the mountains. Would recommend to anyone that wants to explore the mountains away from the crowds.

    Goulven a une lecture époustouflante de la montagne. Son histoire personnelle est passionnante et en dit long sur son expertise. Etant guide à travers le monde et co-pilote d’hélicoptère de secours dans les Alpes, on se sent rassuré de le suivre hors des sentiers battus. Je recommande vivement d’être guidé par Goulven, surtout pour des randonnées techniques.
