Arctic-Style Survival Challenge

Published on 23 April 2019 09:21 AM

This is our popular Arctic Survival Challenge run by local company, Intrepid Expeditions. Take on this epic 8 day / 7-night challenge raising funds for Age UK Exeter and you won't just be changing the lives of older people, but also yourself!

What’s it all about?

This unique experience is set in the pristine wilderness of Northern Sweden, 150 km south of the Arctic Circle. A once in a lifetime challenge this expedition combines the exciting activities of snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and husky sledging along with your ability to adapt to the Arctic environment.
The week is based in and around Intrepid’s remote, traditional log cabin.
Three nights are spent in the cabin while you acclimatize to the cold before venturing onto the survival phase of the expedition where you will build and live in a shelter and snow hole…a magical experience never to be forgotten. If you’re lucky you may even get to see the Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis.
