300 km of vast, arctic wilderness, more than 200 highly skilled sled dogs; a handful of expert guides and a group of „ordinary“ people from all over the world. This is Fjällräven Polar. For almost a decade Fjällräven Polar was a regular dog sled race. In 2012 it all changed. The aim of it shifted to taking about 30 people with no extraordinary outdoor skills on an adventure into one of the world’s harshest environments, the Arctic tundra. On their journey from Signaldalen (NOR) to Jukkasjärvi (SWE) they learn how to take care of themselves, their sled dogs and nature. Fjällräven believes that with the right support, gear and mindset this adventure was anyone’s to have; and the more time we spend in nature, the more we grow appreciation, love and respect for it.
Over the years, participants have faced everything, from blizzards and freezing -30°C temperatures, to beautiful, sun-drenched landscapes of crisp white snow. Fjällräven Polar 2019 participants had yet another opportunity to push their boundaries on an adventure of a lifetime.
