Film Summary

If an international clothing company from Sweden offered an opportunity to manage your own dog sled team across the Scandinavian Arctic, would you spend a month collecting the necessary votes on Facebook to win a spot on the team? The Fjällräven Polar is a 300 km dogsledding expedition through the Scandinavian Arctic, and it’s Melanie’s dream to earn a spot on the team. After volunteering at the Copperdog 150 Melanie developed an interest in dogsledding and having the opportunity to join Fjällräven’s efforts in showing that EVERYONE can get out and enjoy more winter activities, she’s inspired to apply in the hopes of encouraging others to chase adventures of their own.
