Imagine eight days in the middle of Sweden, miles away from anywhere, set aongst stunning wilderness environment. This once in a lifetime challenge combines your ability to adapt to and live in the heart of this environment, satisfy your survival instinct, as well as experience tranquility and relaxation under the stars of the Arctic.
You will participate in dog sledding, skiing, ice fishing, trapping, hunting, shelter and snow hole building – and many more.
This challenge is limited to just 16 people who will be from all ages, backgrounds and fitness levels. Only 18 year olds or over can register and you’ll need a driving licence to operate the snowmobiles, however, if you don’t have a licence, you can experience the snowmobiles as a passenger.
Most participants will sign up on their own, but there may be small groups of friends or family. You do not need prior experience of the activities.
Swedish guides will meet us at Östersund and take us to our base - a cosy log cabin on the edge of a lake at Raftälven with no electricity - just an open fire, beds and a cooker. You'll spend the week in a glistening winter wonderland.

Care and support through terminal illness.
Marie Curie provides around the clock support to people in the UK living with a terminal illness. Either in people's homes or in their hospices, nurses help patients achieve the best quality of life possible, managing pain and providing emotional support to the whole family.
Funds you raise can help them reach more people, £20 could pay for one hour or £180 could provide nine hours of nursing support through the night, for someone in the comfort of their own home bringing the expert care and comfort families need.
