The Husky Trail
Join, the most unique of charity events, spend six days sledding through the rolling highlands and deep forests of Lapland for an experience you will never forget. Our 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 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 will 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 the challenge is a thirst for extreme adventure! This is no ordinary charity challenge – you will be required to erect tents, cook and fulfil all camping duties with the equipment provided. In addition to looking after yourselves, you will also be responsible for looking after the teams of huskies – be assured, this is a true, “hands on” wilderness challenge!
Watching the Northern Lights and tending the dogs will give an exact experience for living as the Laplanders do. This is one of the most popular charity challenges and is over subscribed year on year… a truly unforgettable experience awaits you!
