Following a very successful expedition to East Greenland in April 2022 GZBA is once again teaming up with Pirhuk Guides to create an extraordinary and unique Arctic experience in 2023. The adventure starts in Reykjavik Iceland, the only airport with flights to East Greenland. The team will overnight in Reykjavik to ensure everyone makes the early morning flight.

Flying into Kulusuk, East Greenland on our first day, we are met at the snow strip and skin around 30 minutes to the lodge whilst all kit is taken by snowmobile. After lunch and an update on conditions, there’s normally time for an avalanche exercise as part of a short ski tour from the lodge. The following day is our first full ski day. We’ll make plans in the evening, then early each morning we will check the state of the sea ice, snowpack and weather before confirming objectives. We’llski each day, either from the door or more normally using snowmobiles to tow in over the sea ice; other days we might travel by dog sled or boat to reach your objective.

Of the six full days of skiing, we plan to make a four-day / three-night ski traverse utilising our mountain huts, assisted by powerful boats to cross the open fjord which separates them. After a full week, we’ll skin back to the snow strip in time for our prop-plane flight to Reykjavik, Iceland.

In this wild and remote region, the state of the sea ice, snowpack and prevailing weather dictates everything that we do. This trip takes place on one of the least populated coastlines on earth, a vast region of glaciers, mountains and fjords subject to heavy pack ice. Limited infrastructure, extreme weather and challenging ice/snow conditions may dictate that we have to adjust the plan to suit. Between us we have over 20 years of experience in exploring East Greenland and use all that experience to make the best use of the conditions but it’s essential that all team members are aware of the possibility of disruption to plans inherent in this arctic region.  



TTo reach our lodge, you’ll be flying into a remote gravel airstrip on one of the wildest coastlines on earth. The route between Reykjavik Domestic airport, Iceland, and our home village of Kulusuk, is served by Icelandair. The airline uses prop planes to serve the route, capable of landing on the short runway surrounded by mountains.

*Please note it is not uncommon for flights to and from East Greenland to be cancelled and re-scheduled for this reason we recommend putting aside 14 days for this trip

“This was the second time I skied with Stefano and it’s only getting better! I am a 22 years-old skier in competitive level, and just like the first time, I enjoyed every single moment of my journey…”


“I chose Zenit because of their approach and program. All the other schools I contacted didn’t seem to offer what I needed. Dedicated 1/2 day lesson 1 to 1 reaching.Alex was my teacher, and I felt…”

GERMANY, Trip Advisor

“My son had an awesome experience. The coaches are all extremely professional, kind, caring, and knowledgeable. Our son got excellent feedback on his skiing and how to improve and he grew hugely in confidence both on and off the piste. We were very impressed by the coaches and by the whole setup. He’s looking forward to training with them again soon. Thank you!”

Switzerland, Trip Advisor


Off-piste safety equipment is necessary for all our freeride skiing lessons. This consists of an avalanche transceiver, shovel and probe. We highly recommend the use of a backpack with an inflatable air bag system to be even safer. We highly recommend the use of ski touring equipment to all our freeride guests to maximize terrain access
To enjoy a freeride lesson, you need to be an advanced skier. You don't have to be an experienced off-piste skier, but you have to be comfortable on all slopes of a ski resort. Skiing off-piste will prove itself more challenging than any type of ski slope.
There are multiple ski hire shops in Saas Fee, we recommend Glacier Sport and guests having lessons with us receive a 10% discount on equipment rental.
If you have booked private lessons our instructors can meet you in a variety of locations in resort such as: Plattjen / Spielboden Gondola station. Alpin Express Gondola station. Kalbermatten - Beginner slopes (Lift ticket office). For our intermediate and advanced skiers we can also meet up on the slopes at the Morenia Restaurant. Children’s group lessons will meet at the Plattjen / Spielboden Gondola station on Monday mornings. Please confirm your meeting point with the office when booking.
Our children’s group lessons are all taught in English. Private lessons can be booked in English, German, French, Dutch and Spanish subject to availability.
We always check that all safety equipment is working perfectly. Skis, bindings, ski touring skins and boots must be checked by the guest prior to the freeride lesson.
