Set 150km south of the Arctic Circle, we are immersed in the wilderness. The first part of our challenge is about adjusting to life in this extreme environment, with expert instruction and supervision as we learn how to get around, how to find food, light fire and build shelters.
Activities include cross country skiing, snow shoeing, ice fishing, husky sledding and snowmobiling.
Later in the challenge is a three day survival phase where our training is put to the test. Moving away from our log cabin, as a group we construct our own accommodation for each night. This includes a Scandinavian tent, a shelter and a snow hole. This is a harsh environment to test your survival instinct, whilst enjoying the peace, tranquillity and beauty of the wilderness and starry skies.

The event is being organised by The Different Travel Company.
The Different Travel Company works with a wide range of charities, organisations, colleges, schools and groups to offer short-term build or project trips worldwide, classic charity challenges such as trekking the Great Wall of China or climbing Kilimanjaro, and also trips which combine a physical trek or challenge with making a practical difference at a project in the destination country.
Participants have gone to see the sights, participate in physical challenges and work alongside the local people and have returned with open eyes, experiences of a lifetime and memories that will last forever.
