Extreme driving in Finland
Do you want to spend your winter vacation just unforgettable? Go to the snowy Finland – learn extreme driving!
In the winter in Lapland, several companies offer tourists new interesting entertainment – unusual driving courses.
Here you can get driving skills in extreme conditions, and you can choose the type of car for training by yourself: an ordinary passenger car, a racing car or even maps.
According to the National Tourism Board of Finland, tourists can choose the most interesting place for skiing – icy lakes or specialized snow trails. For everyone, single and group rides are also available.
In the resort village of Saariselkä, located in the northernmost part of Lapland, you can visit Action Park. Here you can learn the technique of driving on ice and snow-covered tracks, take part in extreme karting in the hills and try your hand at real races in which everyone can participate. In addition, it is worth noting that the majority of new products in the automotive industry and tires from many global manufacturers are being tested precisely here, on winter Finnish roads.
And practically next to the Arctic Circle, not far from the residence of Santa Claus, is the Arctic Motor Park, in which you can also take part in rally, races on snowmobiles, winter karting or simply “drive” at your pleasure at high speeds.
By the way, even the famous race driver Juha Kankkunen, who won the title of four-time world rally winner, can become your mentor in the art of extreme driving in Finland! The champion with his team invites everyone to the Juha Kankkunen Driving Academy, located in the Ruka-Kuusamo region, where you can learn different subtleties of virtuoso driving along difficult roads. After taking a course on car management in the winter season, you will learn the secrets of winter driving from professionals, and you can even practice together with Kankkunen himself.
