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.

An expert local company will ensure you experience an adrenaline-fuelled day heli- skiing the hundreds of glacial runs that drop into three different fjords directly behind the island of Kangaamiut. Enjoy thrilling descents of nearly 2,000m with many terminating directly at the sea edge. Cruise overnight to the city of Sisimiut, known for its colourful architecture, and celebrate crossing the Arctic Circle with a “polar baptism”, a quick plunge into the icy waters.
