Ever dreamt of driving your own team of spirited huskies across the Arctic, with civilisation left far behind? Well, now that dream can become a reality!

Join this most unique of charity events, as you spend six days sledding through the rolling highlands and deep forests of Lapland for an experience you will never forget. This charity challenge is to sled 250km from Norway, into Sweden through untouched nature, in order to finish at the world famous Ice Hotel (the original!) in Jukkasjarvi!

The challenge is suitable for beginners to sledding, as full training will be given – all you need to join this challenge is a thirst for extreme adventure! This is no ordinary charity challenge – you will be required to erect your own tents, cook for yourselves and fulfil all camping duties with the equipment provided. In addition to looking after yourselves, 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 your dogs will give you an exact experience for living as the Laplanders do.
