Please e-mail for the total cost ( @ 06/2012) which includes:
- Accommodation and meals, lunches etc
- Guides & Pilots plus expenses
- Safety equipment
- 12.5 hrs helicopter time.
- Re location costs of heli from West Greenland.
On signing of the Greenland Air Contract on Dec 10th I need to make a deposit to guarantee a helicopter. To cover everything I will need a 50% deposit before Dec 10th and the remaining 50% to be paid by March 1st.
Air Greenland require payment for a minimum amount of hours and this is non refundable. The other big cost in the package is the Greenland Airport Authority which charges us on a weekly basis for flight recording and basically to be able to operate commercially within the country. This cost is also non refundable.
If however we have problems with the weather and we do not fly the minimum hours then I can usually sell them as extra hours to another group in which case if I have extra hours paid at the end of my contract I can refund groups that did not achieve their hours.
As per normal heliski, temperatures range from -10 to + 5 although it can get colder. I will supply avalanche transceivers and harnesses (for skiing on glaciers) unless you have your own. I can also provide ski’s and poles and ABS trigger and gas cartridges small back packs and shovels and probes. I will take care of any other safety equipment that is required.
Faye (my travel agent) can organize this plus accommodation if you would like, she will be in contact. You do not have to feel obliged to use her services; it is just a convenience for you as she does my flights and bookings it saves you having to work out how to meet up etc.
It is best to get full trip cancellation insurance as Air Greenland have a no cancellation policy once a payment is made. In the past I have had people waitlisted for the trips but this is not a guarantee.
