The challenge

  • Drive a team of huskies over 200kms of beautiful, frozen landscape
  • Learn to manage and care for the dogs
  • A chance to witness the wonder of the Northern Lights
  • Set up campsites and muck in with the cooking
  • Stay near traditional Sami villages and learn about their culture

Take on a challenge that is completely different to everything else you can think of. A team of loyal huskies will lead you through the snow-covered forests and mountains of Swedish Lapland. Experience the silence of nature as you glide through this winter wonderland, while taking the opportunity to spot elk and reindeer and even see the spectacular Northern Lights. The adventure begins in Kiruna, Sweden’s northernmost city, situated 145kms north of the Arctic Circle. The region is home to the Sami people, who will guide you through their land with their four-legged friends – soon to become your trusted companions. This is a rare opportunity to travel with animals through on a great, mountainous expedition.
