Event Details

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

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

Watching the Northern Lights and tending to your dogs will give you an exact experience for living as the Laplanders do. This is one of the most popular charity challenges… a truly unforgettable experience awaits you.
