For 2023 Walk the Walk have decided to put the Arctic Challenge 'on ice'... this is for many reasons, the main ones being Covid-19 and the current economy... all being well, we will be back and skiing across the Arctic in 2024. If you are interested in taking part please enter your interest here!

Embrace this truly unique adventure and embark on the challenge of a lifetime... backcountry ski a full marathon over 2 days on trails in Abisko National Park. The route, distance and in this time, is quite a challenge... not to mention the variable weather!

As well as a Marathon, you may experience the excitement of seeing the Northern Lights, the thrill of husky sledging, sleeping in the wilderness in mountain huts with no electricity and a 2 night stay at the unique and very special IceHotel and sleeping on a bed of ice... all whilst uniting against breast cancer!

'The guides skiing with jammie Dodgers to keep us going, the camaraderie of all of those on the trip, the northern lights, the eagle flying above the lake and the moose in the distance... all these small things come together to make such a special experience' - Heather
