Fascinating heliskiing above the sea in the fjords in the far north of the wild west coast of Greenland

i

Maniitsoq, on the west coast of Greenland, is a small Inuit town surrounded by high mountains and long steep fjords brimming with wildlife accessible only by plane or boat.

i

From the hotel, you can admire the breathtaking panorama of scattered islands, fjords, impressive glaciers and massive icebergs, as well as a few 2000m summits plunging directly into the sea.
i
Greenland’s heliski season goes from March to mid-June, when the glaciers have a stable snow cover and the risk of avalanche is low.  The powder conditions are good for most of the season.
i
From the end of April onwards there is almost permanent daylight, which allows us to ski until late in the day. The helicopter drops take place on the many islands of the bay, as well as on the slopes of the long and narrow fjords carving Greenland’s icecap, and the many spectacular runs end more often than not on the beach. Greenland’s vegetation is sparse and there is no skiing amongst the trees.

i

Other possible activities in the region include boat excursions, wildlife watching (whales in particular), fishing and sea kayaking.
