Taking place from the 5th-10th March 2020 you will travel to Rovaniemi in Finland before beginning your three-day adventure.   The Arctic trek is considered “the best challenge ever” where you’ll make friends for life, take home memories that no pictures can impart, and where you will be part of something very few others will experience.

If trekking up to 70km in temperatures as low as -30 degrees whilst dragging your equipment behind you in a pulk and sleeping in a tent along the Arctic Circle sounds amazing, then this perfect challenge for you!

In addition to the tougher side of the challenge, there will also be the opportunity to tick off a few popular bucket list items; see some of the world’s most breathtaking scenery and glistening snowdrifts, spend a night in the Arctic Snow Hotel, catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights, but there is no guarantee that you will get to meet Santa Claus when you visit his official home town Rovaniemi.

Minimum sponsorship for this trek is £3,700 with a £350 deposit
