Ice Driving Event Lappland

Wintersports, Specials

Have you ever wondered why the Finns are so successful at motor racing?

Now you can find out with professional Finnish rally drivers showing you the ropes.

On amazing ice circuits in Lapland, Finland Juha Kankkunen the finnish 4 time World Rally Champion will teach you how to control a supercar at high speeds and how to drift a hairpin bend with perfect control.

During the training your driving skills will advance rapidly and so will the level of cars you drive right up to a Lamborghini Gallardo.

The ice driving training program was first launched by Mr Juha Kankkunen in 2007. Juha´s motto has always been Fast, Fun and Safe. The training still to this day follows these 3 main principles.

During the event drivers will meet many world class and famous rally drivers as their one to one instructors. We take great pride in the fact Finland is the birth place of all the great drivers and this you will feel from the first minute your plane lands in Lapland.

Sitting around a log fire and talking about cars with Juha Kankkunen and other world class WRC rally drivers, is an up close and personal once in a life time experience, you will remember for ever.

Many professional rally drivers and current F1 drivers take part in the program to learn from Juha Kankkunen and to fine-tune their skills. Sebastian Vettel, Heikki Kovalainen, the McLaren F1 team and Mika Häkkinen are all very familiar faces at our winter circuits.

So whether you are a complete novice, seasoned professional or anywhere in between, our professional team will tailor the program to suit individual skills to ensure everyone gets the most from their time with us. Apart from ice driving, there is a lot to do if you have never experienced Lapland and the Arctic cold weather. Explore the beautiful winter scenery on a skidoo safari for instance. The safari takes you through snowy forests and over frozen lakes to a nearby mountain on the Russian border, where a hot lunch and reindeer skins keep you warm in a traditional Laplander hut.

The event can be tailored for corporate groups or to your bespoke requirements. Additional driving days and other non-driving Arctic adventures can be added.

Famous to Lapland: Reindeer, Huskys, Snow Shoe Safari, Skiing and the Finnish Sauna to name a few winter activities that can be added to your itinerary. Lapland is very family friendly but is also extremely popular amongst corporates and large groups.
