We’ve spent over a decade in Greenland and we’ve developed a trip that is a remarkable combination of adventure, comfort, and culture. The skiing terrain is infinitely vast and varied making the trip suitable for a wide range of skier abilities. And the sense of solitude makes everyone feel like they are not just a skier – but a pioneer.
The logistics of skiing a day in Greenland add greatly to the adventure. For the more common trips that base out of Maniitsoq, your day will begin after breakfast when you’ll head to the dock with your gear to board a boat that you’ll take from the island to the day’s staging area. Overhead, the helicopter will be slinging fuel to the staging area so that you can fly and ski without having to return to base. The trip to the staging area will vary a little depending on the day’s plan, terrain, and your desires. Once there, you’ll disembark with your gear, review safety procedures – and then get after it. At the end of the day, the captain will be waiting in the bay to pick you up, and you’ll spend the short trip back to town enjoying drinks and telling the day’s stories.
Getting to Greenland is a wonderful journey across cultures and timezones. Because of the historical, political and economic connections between Greenland and Denmark, your first stop will be in the Danish capital of Copenhagen. You’ll spend an afternoon touring around the ancient city touring sites like Tivoli Gardens, the Little Mermaid Statue, the Amalienborg and Christiansborg palaces, Rosenborg Castle, Frederik's Church, and many museums, restaurants and nightclubs.
The following morning, it's off to Greenland aboard an Air Greenland flight to Kangerlussuaq, and then on to your final destination, the island town of Maniitsoq.
The Hotel Maniitsoq is a wonderfully cozy hotel where you’ll relax, dine and sleep after your day skiing. The double rooms are Danish - modern and well-equipped, and most of them have a view to the archipelago and to the Apussuit glacier on the mainland behind. The rooms all have a private shower and toilet, telephone and 32" flatscreen tv with free satellite channels.
