A marathon ski adventure over two days + Northern Lights, husky sledding, traditional saunas, stay in the famous ICEHOTEL & unite against breast cancer.
Follow the Kings Trail through the Abisko National Park on skis for two days - even if you've never skiied before. Discover the glistening perfection of the unspoilt landscape and make tracks in fresh snow.
Embrace the thrill of dog sledding, chop firewood, collect water and enjoy cosy candlelit mountain hut dinners with your fellow adventurers.
Stay in the famous ICEHOTEL which is rebuilt every year using local ice - and sleep on an ice bed!
If you can ski
Backcountry skiing is different to Alpine skiing so you'll need to follow the 16-week training plan and choose the best conditioning activities such as swimming to strengthen the upper body and pilates.
If you can't ski
You will need to earn your level 4 certificate before the challenge (approx. 4-6 lessons) which includes snow ploughing, stopping, walking up slopes and skiing down. Plus you'll need to follow the 16-week training plan with additional conditioning activities such as swimming and pilates.
