Join us on this most unique of charity events as we spend five days sledding through the rolling highlands and deep forests of Lapland for an experience you will never forget.

Lead your own team of huskies across the Arctic
• Learn how to dog sled in a long distance expedition
• Sleep in secluded timber cabins
• A chance to see the incredible Northern Lights!

Our charity challenge is to sled 270km from Norway, into Sweden through untouched nature, in order to finish at the world famous Ice Hotel (the original!) in Jukkasjarvi! Our challenge begins in the Arctic city of Tromso, where we make our way to the Dog Sled Centre in order to meet our husky companions. After meeting and greeting our furry friends, we then dive straight into the spirit of adventure and spend our first night in a traditional Lavvo, surrounding the roaring fire.

Watching the Northern Lights and tending to our dogs will give us an exact experience for living as the Laplanders do. This is one of Global Adventure Challenges most popular charity challenges and is oversubscribed year-on-year… a truly unforgettable experience awaits you.

Our trusted trek partners Global Challenge Adventures are holding a FREE Information Webinar on Tuesday 26th January 2021 at 6.30pm to give you the opportunity to find out what’s involved and ask questions.  Please register for this event in advance HERE.

Can you do it? Yes you can!

This charity challenge is suitable for beginners to sledding as full training will be given – all you need to join our challenge is a thirst for extreme adventure! This is no ordinary charity challenge – we will be required to erect our own tents, cook for ourselves and fulfil all camping duties with the equipment provided. In addition to looking after ourselves, we’ll also be responsible for looking after our teams of huskies – be assured, this is a true, “hands on” wilderness challenge!

Travel with Confidence

We know there are a lot of things to consider before you get back out into the world so our trusted partners have put together their new Travel with Confidence policy, outlining the steps they and their suppliers are taking to make sure that you are safe.

Climate Care

We believe that we all have a responsibility to help fight climate change which is one of the reasons we are working with Global Adventure Challenges – they are committed to offsetting as much of the carbon generated by the challenges as they possibly can. With this in mind, they will plant 20 trees for every open participant who takes part in the challenge. For further information on our climate care strategy, click here.
