Exhilarating heliskiing yacht charters.

Explorer yachts have the capability not just to take you off the beaten track, but to take you to places where tracks have never even been made. It's a thrilling open-air discovery by day, expertly guided, contrasting with the comforts of on-board living as the sun goes down.

Entire mountain ranges of unspoilt powder await, and the trip to the top of the slope offers spectacular views of the landscapes as you fly high into unspoilt nature. Your guides will select the right areas to suit your level of skiing and will offer you the chance to develop and explore new skills. And in the meantime, your crew will be busy preparing a warm welcome for you on your return: massage therapists, personal trainers, pools and private gyms await, not to mention gourmet delights from Michelin trained chefs.
