WELCOME TO ARCTIC SWEDEN

Welcome to the VIP WINTER TEST DRIVE 2017

Bring your VIP guests to an unforgettable driving experience far north above the Polar Circle. Get the unique chance to maneuvre the V90CC T6 or D5, or SC90 T8 or D5 on ice tracks on the frozen water of River Torne.  The thrill and challenge of the ice track driving, having to negotiate your way across the ice is an adventure in itself - however an everyday challenge for a northern Swede.

You will also get the opportunity to feel the power of Siberian huskys pulling you through the powder snow, sleep one night in a crispy cold ice suite, then defreeze in the hot sauna or in front of the cozy fire on a reindeer skin.

It's a once in a life time opportunity.
