Sign up for an Arctic Adventure to raise funds for bereaved British Forces children and young people. Head to Finland for a 5-day adventure with snow-shoeing, cross-country skiing, and husky-sledding.

Away from the crowds, enjoy mesmerisingly peaceful scenes of frozen lakes and snow-covered pine and spruce forests as you explore the silent wilderness.

You’ll be snow-shoeing to a remote overnight cabin, pushing yourself in this harsh but compelling environment. You’ll also try cross-country skiing and husky-sledding, along with staying in traditional log cabins in the woods, and relaxing in Finnish saunas, whilst enjoying the incredible night skies. If you’re lucky, you’ll also see the captivating dance of the Northern Lights.

To join Team Scotty and fundraise for bereaved British Forces children and young people at this event please visit the Artic Adventure event site by clicking here. When you register you will be asked which charity you wish to support and will have the opportunity to select Scotty’s Little Soldiers.

Please note that 80% of the minimum sponsorship must be received 10 weeks before departure, as agreed with the event organisers. If not your place may be cancelled.
