Spirited mountain and ski expeditions in Greenland


Welcome to Pirhuk.  My name is Matt Spenceley & I am founder and lead guide for Pirhuk.  From our base in East Greenland, we specialise in Greenland ski touring and mountaineering expeditions, icecap crossings, treks and traditional dogsled trips.

The expeditions detailed here are an expression of our huge passion for Greenland and a deep love of being in the mountains, combined with the expertise of over 26 expedition seasons up north.  As a small guide-owned outfit of dedicated professional skiers, mountaineers and locals, we aim to provide hand-crafted expeditions that push boundaries and do justice to this incredible wild land.  I hope that you will join us this coming season!
