Sled with huskies in Lapland!

Sledding across the heart of Lapland children's charity challenge

Sled with huskies in Lapland!

Dates in April 2019

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 (in fact 2018 dates are all fully booked now)… a truly unforgettable experience awaits you. Dates available to take on this challenge are:

22nd-29th March 2019
30th-6th April 2019
7th-14th April 2019
