First descents in Greenland
March – April
This is your chance to summit and ski peaks never touched before by humankind. And, like the wilderness base camp you’ll stay in, every aspect of the adventure will be tailored to your exact tastes, from pre-expedition training with expert mountaineers to the type of meals served by your private chef. For the more adventurous, spend a night as a polar explorer, staying in a mountain camp away from base.
It all begins with a private flight to Greenland’s eastern remotes, where you’ll be met by a team of Inuit mushers. So that you don’t miss a privileged sighting, keep your eyes open for polar bears, Arctic wolves and, of course, the Northern Lights.
Rare ski in the Kuril Islands
Not many have heard of the Kuril Islands, and even fewer have been. This extraordinary 1,300 kilometre chain of volcanic islands stretches down from the Kamchatka peninsula through the Sea of Okhotsk to Hokkaido in Japan. Thanks to its geographical position on the Ring of Fire, the landscapes are pure fantasy.
Sailing onboard one of the world’s finest yachts will bring a slice of unbridled indulgence to the one of its furthest reaches. Sail from Kamchatka’s coastal city of Petropavlovsk to explore the archipelago’s snow-covered calderas, icy lakes and volcanic cones. Each day you can ski a fresh peak or range and make use of the yacht’s helicopter or range of water toys.
From summit to sea in Iceland
March – April
In among Iceland’s geological wonders, our expert pilots will drop you atop unique, remote lines, before picking you up by the water’s edge of the country’s wild Atlantic coastline. There’s also plenty of time to explore further, perhaps flying over or climbing active volcanoes in the company of a volcanologist, trying your hand at Arctic surfing and searching for whales with marine biologists. Then, at day’s end, return to your private lodge for exclusive views of March’s Northern Lights.
Antarctica: ski the seventh continent
October – December
Skiing in the Antarctic is not just about the spectacular scenery and the unique lines. It’s the chance to really engage and explore what is one of the Earth’s last frontiers, enjoying slopes only accessed via skinning before returning to the plush environs of your expedition yacht.
As ever, it will be customised to your exact specifications, whether you want to spend extra time focused on the continent’s wildlife or create your very own ski movie.
