Fly into Alta, your Finnmark Arctic Charity Challenge begins with a stay in a mountain cabin before heading off into the wilderness. It emerges 7 days later having travelled approx 80km across the Finnmark Plateau, a beautiful white landscape. Staying in a mix of cabins and tents, the sense of freedom and open space is immense; no roads, no people, no fixed times to adhere to. The group will be completely self contained, including a friendly Husky or two, there to help pull the supplies (this is not a dog sled expedition!).
This Finnmark Arctic Charity Challenge is for any aspiring adventurer, looking to try the arctic environment and yet not extreme (although it can be if the weather is against you).

Whilst this Finnmark Arctic Charity Challenge is a serious challenge (due to the environment), it takes place within an invisible (to the client) and yet solid safety framework. It is designed to be a stress free, enjoyable adventure across what is rated as some of the best cross country skiing terrain in the world. It is therefore perfect for anyone considering this type of challenge for the first time.
Daily skiing distances are manageable. The equipment such as tents are top notch; they have to be in these conditions.
We include most specialist equipment needed (touring skis, boots, poles, tents, pulks, cooking equipment, etc…) and the hire of other expensive kit such as arctic sleeping bag (-20°C) and roll mat is available.
Clients need to be robust, fit and up for a real challenge of this nature. We stress, no previous arctic experience is required. Herds of reindeer and their nomadic herders are highly likely to be seen.
The Guides will teach you everything, from the tents, cooking equipment, how to handle to Husky dog(s) and how to ice fish (dinner!). This trip is therefore very educational too. The final Lodge is a real treat.
