BOOK A 30-MINUTE INTRODUCTORY CALL WITH OUR CHALLENGES TEAM TO FIND THE RIGHT SHACKLETON CHALLENGE FOR YOU.

Mission: To ski-traverse across the stunning Hallingskarvet National Park whilst seeking the unique remote refuge of the Norwegian hut system.

Finse in Western Norway is the home of polar training, with a unique place in polar history. Our Hut to Hut Challenge is a step up from our Polar Skills Challenge, and will include longer distances and more undulating terrain. You’ll be skiing a challenging route, covering about 65km, led by renowned polar guides and starting and ending at the iconic Finse 1222 Hotel. During the expedition you will be staying in just a few of the 570 ‘DNT’ mountain huts in Norway which provide refuge in wilderness areas. You will be skiing through mountain passes, across frozen lakes, and into valleys, with stunning views of Hardangerjokulen and surrounding areas. Daily distances will increase as you further familiarise yourself with polar travel, whilst spending the evenings in the comfort of traditional Norwegian accommodation, listening to remarkable stories from record-breaking polar explorers.

ITINERARY

REVIEWS

It was probably the best experience of my life so far. The ice crystals in my hair quickly melted, but my sense of personal polar pride remains at a plateau. By endurance we do conquer, it seems.
