Arctic Survival Challenge

7 – 14 March 2021

The Challenge

Discover how to survive in the extreme temperatures of the Arctic on one of our toughest challenges yet.

Set 150km south of the Arctic Circle, the first part of the challenge is about adjusting to life in the cold, learning crucial survival skills and discovering how to build shelters. The second half sees you leaving the comfort of the log cabin, venturing out into the wilderness as you work as a team to build a different shelter for three nights: a Scandinavian tent, a natural shelter and a snow hole called a quinzee.

Your hard work will be rewarded with the unforgettable experience of cross-country skiing, husky sledding and snowmobiling.

Why take part? As well being an amazing personal achievement, the money you raise through taking on this once-in-a-lifetime challenge will make a huge difference to the local patients and their families who we care for every day. Each battling their own daily challenges, we help them to come to terms with living with a life limiting illness through practical, medical and emotional support.
