Set in the heart of the Arctic, this is a land of vast wilderness areas, of frozen lakes and rivers, the extraordinary Aurora Borealis, herds of reindeer, the occasional moose, the Fata Morgana, frozen tundra, endless pine forest and ice fishing.
Your Swedish Arctic challenge involves 6 different trials to tackle as a team, including a fantastic celebratory meal and prizegiving before your departure on the Monday.
Ice and snow are the norm for many months of the year and so dog sledding and skiing are still essential for everyday use during the long Swedish winters. Here, in the province of Lapland and 150km above the Arctic Circle, is where the Arctic Challenge is held.
Day 1: Friday
Arrive in Sweden and transfer to Lapland, travel by dogsled to your wilderness camp by torchlight.
Day 2: Saturday
Four trials - Orienteering, 35km dog sled time trial circuit, fire starting, and a quiz.
Day 3: Sunday
Two trials - Ice fishing (inclusing frozen-lake drilling) and the 25km Nordic ski event. Celebratory dinner and prize giving tonight!
Day 4: Monday
Words for life: Dedicated to raising literacy levels in the UK.
One person in six in the UK lives with poor literacy. This holds them back at every stage of their life. As a child they won't be able to succeed at school, as a young adult they will be locked out of the job market, and on becoming a parent they won't be able to support their child's learning.
Lacking these vital skills undermines their wellbeing and stops them making a full contribution to the economic and cultural life of our nation. We work to improve the reading, writing, speaking and listening skills in the UK's most disadvantaged communities.
