The Ultimate Survival Challenge, set 150km south of the Arctic Circle, we are fully immersed in the wilderness. The first part of our challenge is about adjusting to life in this extreme environment, with expert instruction and supervision as we learn how to get around, how to find food, light fire and build shelters.
Activities include cross country skiing, snow shoeing, ice fishing, husky sledding and snowmobiling.
Later in the challenge there is a three day survival phase where our training is put to the test. Moving away from our log cabin as a group we construct our own accommodation for each night. This includes a Scandinavian tent, shelter and snow hole. This is a harsh environment to test your survival instinct whilst enjoying the peace, tranquility and beauty of the wilderness and starry skies.
Pretty much everyone! The trip can be undertaken by anyone of any age as long as you have a good level of fitness and are healthy. All trekkers must be aged 18 or over at the date of travel (trekkers aged 16 or 17 may attend if accompanied by a parent or guardian aged 18+).
