We are based 60 kilometers north of Maniitsoq, in the tiny village of Kangaamiut. Kangaamiut sits on a small island just south of the Arctic Circle. As we are here in mid-Spring, days are already long (18-20hours) and you will notice daylight increasing each day.
The easiest transfer by far is via Copenhagen. From there it is a 4 and half hour Airbus flight to the International Airport at Kangerlussuaaq, followed by a short turbo-prop flight to Maniitsoq. We depart Copenhagen on the Monday morning (9am) and will be in Maniitsoq early afternoon. From Maniitsoq airport we either connect via helicopter to Kangaamuit (skiing our way north) or via boat if weather restricts flying. The following Monday, after a night in the hotel in Maniitsoq, we retrace our steps and arrive back in Copenhagen around 7pm.
We recommend you stay in the Clarion Hotel Copenhagen Airport the Sunday evening before and Monday evening after for its superb convenience.
Air Greenland supply AeroSpatiale Squirrel (aka A Star/Ecureil) AS350 B3 helicopters equipped for Arctic flying (HF radio, inflatable skids, survival bags). These are operated with four guests in the rear seat and the guide flying up front in a single seat. Pilots have both heliski and Arctic experience.
Each machine has sat phone and GPS. Flight following is via VHF radio to the Tower in Kangerlussuaaq and Air Greenland heli-base in Nuuk. There is emergency back up from another Squirrel operating to the south of us and if required a 19 seat Sikorsky is one and a half hours away in Nuuk.
All guides carry a sat phone.
