Ski Tours and Heliskiing Featured in
For those who are bored with ordinary skiing, Greenland offers a range of great places for ski tours and heli-skiing. Since it's a huge island country with 85% of its surface covered in snow all year round and high rocky mountains, you can find here vast spaces of unspoilt snow and a lot of breathtaking landscapes. The best locations for ski tours are Maniitsoq and the backcountry around Sisimiut, Nuuk, and Tasiilaq where you'll find deep snow and beautiful, monumental nature. The ski season usually runs here from February through May depending on the snowfall. For heliskiing head to Maniitsoq and Kangamiut in the western part of Greenland, famous for the high peaks up to 2,000 metres and scenic coastal areas. Although both ski touring and heli-skiing are quite challenging, ultimately, you'll feel more than satisfied because the views are well worth it. And don't forget your sunscreen since the days in spring can be quite sunny.
