Everyone has heard of heli-skiing in Canada - after all, it is the world's heli-skiing capital with around 80% of the market for this adrenaline fuelled sport. However,as the lesser known mountainous nations have started to promote their national assets ie mountains and ice, the areas often thought as being too remote are proving to be just as good and better value than the established players - Greenland, the world's largest island, is no exception.
Some of the best skiing in Greenland can be found on the many islands. These regions often have the deepest fjords with many permanently covered by glacial ice. On some of the decents, you can ski from the drop-off point right the way down to the waters edge - something you won't experience heli-skiing in the Alps.
See Greenland's Tourist Office website for other activities including snowmobile adventures in to the arctic mountains.
