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.
