Rally Driving (Coming Soon)
From £TBC Per Person
A Truly Unique Driving Experience On Ice
Imagine driving a rally-winning 300 horsepower Porsche 911 on an ice covered lake! Meticulously prepared Porsche ice driving lake circuits lined by cushioned snow banks, fully studded tyres and world-class instruction make this an unforgettable unique experience.
The world-famous Below Zero Ice Driving centre in Åre, Sweden, offers the ultimate ice driving experience for all abilities, from the fun-seeking novice to the seasoned competition professional. Let us teach you how to drive these competition-ready cars to the limit, and enjoy the most fun you can have on four wheels. Practice sideways driving – drifting – using inch-perfect throttle control.
You will be driving specially prepared, rally equipped Porsche 911s. Most have a powerful 3.0-litre flat six engine producing over 300 bhp, a close-ratio competition gearbox, Bilstein gravel suspension dampers, a full specification FIA integral roll cage and those iconic Porsche Fuchs wheels with fully studded competition tyres.
The lake lies at a latitude of 63 degrees north, 6km from Kall in Sweden and so between December and March each year freezes to a depth of as much as metre. Couple this with 3 feet of snow and you have world’s best winter playground. The ice tracks are carved into the snow to our specification, giving you various levels of difficulty as you progress through the stages of the day. To top it all, the snow lined banks act as the perfect safety zone for the inevitable spin or shunt. Each track is designed to teach you a different set of skills.

Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, with our days, we don’t limit you to number of laps or time. However, we structure the day and give you targets to achieve in the sessions. We put together a run plan throughout the morning and afternoon, which allows for maximum track time whilst also being relaxed, having fun and not tiring yourself or the equipment out.
Yes, for insurance purposes, the instructor will be sat next to you all day. Their job is just to make sure you are driving with the right technique and making sure you are achieving the maximum out of each session. All of our instructors are qualified and hand chosen for the type of car & experience.
Yes, you will always have other cars on track as the experience will take place on a general track day. But the instructor’s job is to make sure you are comfortable with the other cars on track. Most of our clients usually become relaxed and at ease being around other cars really quickly.
You can overtake other cars on track, but it has to be done on the straight lines and in a controlled manner. You are not allowed to overtake another car into the corner like a race situation. You will know more about this in the briefings on the day.
The racing seats have padding in, and we can move the padding around to a certain degree, to fit your size. We will do our best to help position all of the padding before you go out on track, in order to make you feel as comfortable as possible.
No – we want you to turn up relaxed and ready to enjoy the experience. Whether you’ve done lots of track days, no track days or somewhere in the middle; we will talk you through everything throughout to get you comfortable and enjoying your experience. If there are any specific details you’d like to know, you can always ask our technicians or driving professional of course.
If you spin off track and do not hit anything; then the instructor will ask you to start the engine again if it’s safe to do so, and make your way back to the pits carefully. We will then get the car in for a quick check with our technicians. If everything looks OK, we will either send you straight back out for some more laps, or for a quick break to understand what happened with our professional.
Although we have a great record with none of our clients hitting anything, we must also accept that Track Driving is dangerous and there is the potential to cause damage. If you have an accident, the instructor will guide you through the steps. Essentially, you must remain in the car with your seat belts on. Depending on the incident, usually the session will be stopped immediately and the cars will be recovered back to the pits. Our technicians will then inspect the damage – if it’s cosmetic stuff that can be fixed, we will always endeavour to get you out again. It is possible the car is too damaged to continue. In this case, we will speak with you on the day to discuss the options.
Unfortunately, we cannot control the weather. However, if it’s wet then we can still run on track but we will put wet tyres on the car to give you some more grip. The car will have grip in the wet and the instructor and professional will teach you how to drive in the wet before heading out.
