From April through to the middle of May the fjords of Western Greenland offer some of the world’s best heli-skiing with deep powder and corn snow running down to the water’s edge. Jan Verkerk, owner of 70 metre expedition yacht Sherakhan_, reveals an icy trip to satisfy heli-skiing addicts and Arctic nature lovers_. Sherakhan is available for charter with Y.CO.
Day 1: Kangerlussuaq
Fly into the small town of Kangerlussuaq and meet Sherakhan, where her expert guides will talk you through your plans for the week. Sail out of the spectacular
Kangerlussuaq Fjord, which snakes down to the sea with glaciers forming both sides, and settle in on board. Overnight Sherakhan will cruise to Eternity Fjord, a deep canyon running through uninhabited mountains, reaching her anchorage in the early morning.
