Kanderlussuaq Greenland

Kangerlussuaq is a small on the west coast of Greenland and an important starting point for skiing adventures in the region. With the main international airport for Greenland located on the towns outskirts, the location has links to all regional airports in addition to flights from Copenhagen. The nearby fjords of western Greenland are perfect for boat based guided ski touring during the spring months, plus several natural wonders are nearby including the edge of the massive Greenland Ice Sheet.

There are no ski resorts in the region, so all the skiing exploration is human or helicopter powdered on the way up! The prime ski season is from March to June. See the available guided ski touring packages near Kangerlussuaq.
