    Moderate

    This is the perfect challenge for someone who has perhaps never taken on a challenge event before, and is looking to test themselves on an active physical challenge. Although a moderate challenge might be culturally challenging, it will usually be in hotels/lodges rather than camping, and there will be no altitude involved. Training is necessary for all challenges. On a UK 'moderate' challenge, this grading would be perfect for someone who is looking to take their first steps into walking in the UK.

    Challenging

    A 'challenging' trip will test someone who is moderately fit and has a spirit of adventure. You may have had some previous experience, but this is not necessary as long as the correct training is undertaken. A 'challenging' trip may involve some altitude, but this will be compensated by easier terrain and hiking conditions. On a UK 'challenging' challenge, you will be physically tested but the terrain is often on well-established routes.

  • Tough
    ?

    Tough

    A 'tough' trip should be undertaken by someone with previous experience and interest in the activity – whether biking or trekking. It will usually involve camping, and will certainly be in a remote environment, where facilities are not what you would expect at home. A tough challenge will test you both physically and mentally. Both cycle and treks will be hilly, and training is essential. On a UK 'tough' challenge, you should expect 10+ hours of exertion over demanding terrain.

  • Extreme
    ?

    Extreme

    Extreme challenges will involve altitude, and a great deal of endurance. These trips are not to be taken lightly, and will take place in extreme environments, without home comforts. They are usually undertaken by someone with previous experience in a mountain setting, but who wants to take their experience to the next level physically and mentally. Training is essential. On a UK 'extreme' challenge you should have previous experience in the mountains of the UK, as you will be tested to the limits.

Dog Sledding Charity Challenge

Dog Sledding Challenge

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.

North Pole

North Pole Challenge

In 1909 Robert Peary, his partner Matthew Henson and four Inuit reached the North Pole. They were recognised as the first to do, although controversy still surrounds this claim. Following many further failed expeditions, the Pole was next witnessed in 1926, but it was 1948 before anyone actually stood there. Our challenge takes us over the dynamic polar ice cap. Skiing and sledging we will be surrounded by breath-taking scenery and will overcome an ever-changing variety of obstacles, including pressure ridges up to 5m high! This is your chance to add your name to the short list of adventurers who have made the ultimate journey to the top of the world.
