This 5-day challenge will involve flying to Finland, where you will be cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing and husky-sledding, pushing yourselves in the harsh but compelling environment. Staying in log cabins, you can relax in the sauna and watch the night skies for the captivating dance of the Northern Lights.
Day 1: London to Kuusamo
Day 2: Out on one of the well-prepared ski tracks – some are easy, some harder and hillier; so choose a suitable level. Time and energy-levels permitting, we then start making quinzees – a type of igloo – before relaxing back at the cabin.
Day 3: Set off from the cabin in our snowshoes, following a route through beautiful snow-covered forests of pine and spruce. Back at the cabin, we finish our quinzees – and there’s even the opportunity to try ice swimming! The sauna beckons again tonight, and we’ll be hoping to see the magical Northern Lights
Day 4: We drive to our husky farm near Kuusamo, where we meet our intelligent, enthusiastic and very photogenic teams of huskies! Pairing up, we take it in turns to drive while our sled-buddy enjoys the ride. The trail takes us through snow-white forests and frozen lakes! Late afternoon we head to our hotel, where we can celebrate our Arctic achievements.
Day 5: Kuusamo back to London
