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.


Our 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! 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.

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!

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 our most popular charity challenges and is oversubscribed year-on-year… a truly unforgettable experience awaits you.
