Better even than Holiday on Ice, Laponie Ice Driving offers ice driving training courses in Swedish Lapland on one of Europe's largest frozen lakes, Lake Hornavan, the longest and deepest (226m) in Sweden. This really is a unique experience you'll not be able to enjoy anywhere else in the world, not least because this circuit is an exact replica of the 2.4 mi Formula 1 circuit at Le Castellet! Customised 2 to 4 day courses can be arranged for individuals and companies from around the world, irrespective of their driving experience.
Thrill-seekers can experience the joys of extreme driving behind the wheel of a Mitsubishi EVO IX, a Porsche Cayman S, a Porsche GT3, or even a BMW 328i in a truly magical setting. Courses take place between January and March on a nearly 17 mi long frozen lake in Arjeplog at the heart of the Great Swedish North, just 44 mi south of the polar circle. New for 2011, the centre is offering a second course modelled on the Formula 1 circuit at Hockenheim, Germany, as well as a track-side clubhouse where you can relax between sessions. Individuals booking courses here can choose a date between early February and mid-March, with packages ranging between £2,890 and £6,890, excluding transport, accommodation, and meals. Participants are accommodated in the village of Arjeplog on the shores of Lake Hornavan, some 60 mi from the airport in Arvidsjaur.
