Arctic Challenge

Ever dreamt of driving your own team of spirited huskies across the Arctic, with civilisation left far behind? For me that dream became a reality!

The Husky Trail

I Joined Global Adventure Challenges for this most unique of charity events, as I spent six days sledding through the rolling highlands and deep forests of Lapland for an experience I will never forget. The 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

This challenge begins in the Arctic city of Tromso, where you make your way to the Dog Sled Centre in order to meet your husky companions. After meeting and greeting your furry friends, we then dive straight into the spirit of adventure and spend the 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 their 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 yourself, 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. This is one of our most popular charity challenges and is over subscribed year on year… a truly unforgettable experience awaits you.
