The Lapland Husky Trail

Drive your own team of spirited Huskies 260km across the frozenwilderness of the Arctic.

Drive your sled through rolling highlands and deep forest, into the heart of Lapland on an experience you will never forget.

Sledding from northern Norway and crossing the Swedish border, you will journey through wild and untouched nature, and then finally arrive at the world famous Ice Hotel in Jukkasjärvi.

By raising vital funds for Battersea, you're ensuring we can care for the thousands of dogs and cats that arrive at our gates every year.


The sooner you register, the sooner you can start training to take on an unforgettable journey through the Arctic wilderness.
