The route

Lead your own team of huskies across the Arctic as you sled for five days from Norway to Sweden! You’ll cover approximately 270km passing through wild and untouched nature on our way to the original and world famous Ice Hotel in Jukkasjärvi. Full training is given so the only requirement to take part in this challenge is a thirst for extreme adventure! You'll experience the daily life of the Sami people as you tend to your dogs and watch the Northern Lights. A truly unforgettable experience awaits you!
