Mission: To haul a pulk 80km over a 5-day expedition, camping in sub-zero temperatures

This level-3 challenge contains all the elements of a true polar expedition: 5 days of extreme cold weather, complete isolation, extended pulk-hauling, navigation, crevasse and safety drills, freeze-dried rations and camping out in snow and ice. The 80km route from Ustaoset to Finse weaves its way over arduous terrain and includes a crossing of Hardangerjokulen, one of the country’s largest glaciers - a remarkable landscape that bears a striking resemblance to Antarctica. Develop advanced expedition skills and self reliance, increase your resilience and strive towards your goal - the roaring fire and hospitality of the Finse 1222 hotel.

MEET YOUR GUIDES

We work with some of the very best polar guides, ensuring the highest possible safety, tuition and expertise on every expedition. Every Shackleton Challenge has at least two highly-qualified guides, led by Director of Expeditions Louis Rudd, and managed by Expedition Manager, Wendy Searle – between them they have accumulated thousands of miles on foot in polar regions. You will have several interactions with Wendy and Louis prior to departure, they will advise on pre-expedition training, kit recommendation and what to expect when on a Shackleton Challenge.
