A ski touring and boat sailing trip in the fjords of the west coast of Greenland

i

Just above the Arctic Circle lies Maniitsoq where this trip will take place. It is a region that is particularly well-suited to skiing. For those of you who have already come with us to Norway, you will find the same kind of Nordic atmosphere here, magical light and mountains rising up from the sea but it is also wilder and more rugged with lots of polar wildlife.

i

Over 6 days, we will explore new slopes up above the fjords as we search for scenery that will take our breath away and the best snow available.

i

Our base is a beautiful boat, Kisaq, 25 m boat with 6 cabins for 2 persons - bathroom - toilet. Saloon and dining room.

It was refurbished as a cruise ship specially equipped for navigation in polar regions. True luxury floating hotel, it sails to drop you off each day at a different location.

i

The climbs, ranging from 800m to 1300m, begin at sea level and we choose the length and difficulty of the climbs according to the technical and physical level of the participants.
