A helicopter flight is also a way to get to and from Disko Island

The helipad with the most beautiful view! 

The helipad in Qeqertarsuaq is very close to the waterfront and has a view of a black beach and icebergs. It is so close to the water that sometimes during stormy days the icebergs are being pushed all the way up on the helipad.

The only way to get this island during summer is by boat or ferry, but from mid-October when the winds are getting stronger it´s not possible to sail, so this is when the helicopter transportation starts. 

I was so lucky to go there by boat and return to Ilulissat by helicopter. The morning I left there was a very strong wind, but still we didn´t feel anything on board of a Bell212, so I could just enjoy the very beautiful sight when we were flying away from this paradise island.

The red houses are own by the University of Copenhagen and is an environmental research facility in central West Greenland. 

The mountains you see in the back are vulcanic created and there is snow on the top all year round, so it´s possible to go on a dog sledge up there during summer, while down by the sea level it's very green and warm (appr.10-20 degrees).

There are so many great hikes, sledge, skiing possibilities here on the island with a landscape as beautiful as it can get!
