Arctic Apex: Skiing the Untamed North


Welcome to a world of untouched powder and pristine landscapes. Going to the Arctic with Aristeia is not just a skiing holiday; it’s an expedition into the wild, where the snow underfoot is as fresh as the air you breathe. The Arctic offers some of the most incredible ski terrain in the world, promising adventure,  exhilaration and a profound connection with nature.

Our experienced pilots and guides will take you to the heart of the Arctic’s best skiing spots, where you’ll have the freedom to carve your path down wide-open glaciers, steep chutes, and gentle alpine bowls. The helicopter becomes your personal ski lift, transporting you from one fantastic run to the next, ensuring a day filled with thrilling descents and epic scenery.

One of the most unique aspects of skiing in the Arctic is the phenomenon of the midnight sun. During the late spring and early summer months, the sun never sets, allowing for skiing adventures that extend well into the night. There’s nothing quite like the experience of skiing under a sky that’s still bright at midnight, surrounded by landscapes that glow softly in the perpetual daylight.

Dive deeper into the polar realm with an immersive journey through pristine Arctic wilderness and don’t miss the celestial ballet of colors where nature’s most enchanting light show comes to life. Your Arctic adventure awaits.
