Here's your chance to make that dream a reality.
Spend six days sledding through the rolling highlands and deep forests of Lapland for an experience you'll never forget. The challenge is to sled 250km from Norway into Sweden, finishing at the world famous Ice Hotel in Jukkasjarvi.
This charity 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 charity challenge – you'll be required to put up your own tents and cook for yourself. In addition to looking after yourselves, you’ll also be responsible for looking after your teams of huskies. This is a true 'hands on' wilderness challenge.
