The story of Fjällräven Polar
The seed for Fjällräven Polar was planted back in the early 1990s when Fjällräven founder Åke Nordin met Kenth Fjellborg, one of Sweden’s leading dog-sled drivers. Kenth had participated in Iditarod, the world’s most difficult dog sled competition through the harsh Alaskan wilderness, and this inspired Åke.
They wanted to create a Swedish equivalent, but not for experts like Kenth – for ordinary people. And a few years later in 1997, once all the details were ironed out, Fjällräven Polar took place in the Scandinavian Arctic for the first time.

Eric says: “I’m thrilled to be applying for the Polar Adventure! Every great adventurer relies on a team’s support. As a pilot you count on your crew. At home, I’ve always enjoyed the support of my family. They may not share my passion for extreme sports, but do whatever they can to encourage my pursuit of big adventure! The action is outdoors!“
