Lapland

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 270km from Norway, into Sweden through untouched nature, in order to finish at the world famous Ice Hotel (the original!) in Jukkasjarvi! The challenge begins in the Arctic city of Tromso, where you will 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.

This charity challenge is suitable for beginners to sledding as full training will be given. This is no ordinary charity challenge – you will be required to erect your own tents, cook with the group 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!

The Lapland Husky Trail is an 8 day challenge with 5 days trekking, covering a distance of approximately 170 miles.

Registration for this event costs £499 and we ask participants to raise at least £4,150 in sponsorship.
