Places are filling up fast for this amazing event organised by Intrepid Expeditions.

To take part all you need to do is raise £2500 and prepare yourself for a survival experience like no other.

You will take part in a training exercise in November, here in Devon to prepare you for what is certain to be the trip of a lifetime.

Then you will be off on The Arctic Challenge departing on 20th February 2015 flying from London Heathrow to Stockholm. 

You will then take an internal flight from Stockholm to Östersund inside the Arctic Circle.

It really is a once in a lifetime challenge and a magical experience never to be forgotten.

Highlights of the trip include Husky sledding day. After a short briefing each person takes control of their own dog team for a magical ride through the frozen forest.

Then there is Snowmobile Safari day…get ready for an exhilarating ride!

After an early breakfast travel in the minibus for one hour to where you start your snowmobile safari.

You will try your hand at Shelter building; you need to do a good job as you will be spending the night in it!

The next night is Snow Hole night, providing you with yet another challenge.

Then, as your adventure draws to a close, it is Hot tub & Sauna day. 

With the survival phase completed it’s now time for some relaxation.

You can ski, snow shoe or ice fish if you wish.

There is also a traditional sauna heated with a log burner to relax in to have a well deserved rest.
