Understanding our challenge types


Join us on this most unique of charity events as we spend six days sledding through the Swedish wilderness on an experience you will never forget.

Our charity challenge is to sled over 240km across Sweden through untouched nature, to our finish line at the world famous Ice Hotel! Our challenge begins in Kiruna, where we make our way to the Husky Lodge where we have dinner, a challenge briefing and most importantly, meet our four-legged friends who are going to be our closest companions for the duration of our challenge!.

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 experience of 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.

Climate Care

We believe that we all have a responsibility to help fight climate change and as a company, we are committed to offsetting as much of the carbon generated by our challenges as we possibly can. With this in mind, we will plant 20 trees for every open participant who takes part in the challenge. For further information on our climate care strategy, click here.
