NUUK FJORDS & KITE SKIING
Arriving in Kangerlussuaq, you’ll transfer by private helicopter to your yacht in Nuuk. Chopper ashore for an afternoon of skiing led by one of the country’s best ski-guides.
This sets the tone as you cruise further into the Nuuk fjord system, stopping for heli-ski or heli-boarding forays into the pristine snowbound landscape. Opportunities abound to carve tracks from summits all the way to the sea’s edge, and in complete isolation.
In the afternoon, try kite-skiing in Kapisillit. If you’d rather something more contemplative, hike the fjord system’s highest mountain alongside a naturalist, with an eye out for arctic foxes and hares among the craters and lake shore.
SNOWSHOE HIKE & MUSK OK
As your yacht reaches the Eternity Fjord of Manitsoq—arguably the country’s most beautiful fjord—you’ll head to the shore by tender for a snowshoe hike. With your naturalist, you’ll discover the secrets of the wildlife and stunning terrain while you hike the fjords.
Choose a route skirting glaciers, or swap to a kayak for a new perspective. There will also be the chance to explore the sheer cliffs—a breeding ground for fast-flying fulmars. With a guide, watch them from the tender fishing, nesting, and slicing through the air at up to 30mph.
With a satisfying morning ski in Itivdleq under your belt, you’ll soar up in the helicopter for possible first descents down usually inaccessible peaks. You’ll replace the calories with a secluded picnic high in the mountains.
Into 4×4’s next for a musk ox safari. With your Pelorus host and naturalist as guides, you’ll traverse the rugged terrain until you’re up close to these hairy juggernauts, often with caribou nearby. May is a particularly good month for the safari, with mother musk oxen nurturing their calves.
