EXPERIENCE THE EXHILARATING THRILL OF ICE DRIVING FROM BEHIND THE WHEEL OF THE LATEST JAGUAR AND LAND ROVER VEHICLES
THE ICE DRIVE CHALLENGE AWAITS
Arriving in Arvidsjaur, you will be driven to the Hotel Silverhatten which offers stunning views over Lake Hornavan and the surrounding pines. </br></br> Enjoy drinks and dinner with your fellow guests.
After breakfast and a briefing, you will head out onto the frozen lake for your first session. This is when the fun really starts as you learn how to maintain a constant skid angle.
A quick morning briefing and it’s back out on the ice to face some of the trickier tracks. This will be followed by a tour of the secret winter testing facility and an exciting off-road challenge.
After your morning briefing, it’s a final chance to see how far you’ve come and how much you’ve learned as you powerslide your way around the various handling circuits for one last time.
