Go on a trip of a lifetime to the Arctic all in aid of Woking & Sam Beare Hospices.
The perfect antidote to a cold, wet British winter is a cold, dry Arctic adventure!
Replace the British winter with a Scandinavian wilderness away from the crowds and enjoy mesmerisingly peaceful scenes of frozen lakes and snow-covered pine and spruce forests.
You’ll be cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing and husky-sledding, pushing yourself in this harsh but compelling environment. Back at the log cabin, you can relax in the sauna and watch the night skies for the captivating dance of the Northern Lights. The date to join this 5 day excursion is Saturday 11 January 2020, you can view the itinerary for trip here.
