Swedish Lapland, Arctic Circle

Pledge to raise £2,500 and we’ll cover the cost of your challenge! £299 deposit to sign up.

Join this once-in-a-lifetime adventure through the pristine landscape of Swedish Lapland in the Arctic Circle. Get set for an action-packed charity challenge in what is often described as ‘Europe’s Last Wilderness’ as you take on survival techniques and experience Saami culture with dog sledding.

During your trip you’ll get the opportunity to see the Northern Lights (weather permitting), experience a wilderness like no other at your base camp and build and sleep in an igloo – all whilst supporting John Taylor Hospice!

As part of our team you’ll be supported every step of the way with:

  • A welcome pack and dedicated one-to-one fundraising support
  • A John Taylor Hospice T-shirt to wear with pride
  • Regular updates on how your support is making a difference
  • Your very own John Taylor Hospice medal to wear with pride
  • An invitation to our next Fundraisers’ Party

This challenge is being run by professionals Classic Challenges who will also be on hand to support you in the build-up to the event and will run the event from start to finish.
