Fjällräven Polar is a 300 km winter adventure north of the Arctic Circle. It offers a unique opportunity for those of you who have not spent much time outdoors during the winter to go on the adventure of your life. You will be given a chance to navigate a dog sled on your own in what appears to be inhospitable wilderness – across barren tundra and frozen lakes and through mountain forests weighted with snow. You will spend nights in a tent or under the open sky, perhaps accompanied by the northern lights. The journey starts at the edge of the Norwegian fjords in Signaldalen and finishes at Jukkasjärvi area in Swedish Lapland.
