The expedition, which is called “Fjällräven Polar 2018”, starts on April 9 and ends on April 14.

Fjällräven Polar is a unique opportunity for those who wish to go on a winter adventure. It is a 300 km winter adventure North of the Arctic Circle. Candidates navigate a dog sled in inhospitable wilderness – across the barren tundra and frozen lakes and through snowy mountain forests. The journey starts at the edge of the Norwegian fjords in Signaldalen and finishes in the Jukkasjärvi area in the Swedish Lapland.


Mushahid needs our help to vote for him in this contest. To support him and Pakistan you can vote for him here.  The last day to vote for him is December 14, 2017.

We wish Mushahid the best of luck!
