Picture yourself behind the wheel of a Lamborghini Huracan doing 125 MPH on a full F1 circuit.

Now picture that the replica circuit is made of ice and the Northern Lights are glowing overhead.

Finally, picture that there’s a Swedish supermodel sitting next to you in the passenger seat.

Ok, so we made that last part up, but everything else in the dreamy scenario painted above is to be expected at the Lapland Ice Driving experience in Arjeplog, Sweden.

Located 40 miles from the Arctic Circle, the experience takes place on the frozen surface of Lake Udjaur, where experienced replica track builders have transformed its surface into a 1,250-acre drifting area complete with 13 tracks totaling nearly 30 miles in length. Each of the tracks is a full-scale reproduction of a legendary F1 track, with the Paul Ricard, Nürburgring and Silverstone among them.

In addition to the aforementioned Huracan, you’ll be able to choose from cars like a Ferrari 458 Italia, Porsche 991 GT3 and Porsche Cayman S, as well as select from a number of other driving experiences — including a trip to Arctic Circle or an optional dogsled tour.

The two-day experiences are ordered à la carte, but whatever you pick, there’ll be a lot of this:

Running from January 8th to March 23rd, the cost of taking part in the 2018 edition varies greatly depending on what you’d like to do, where you want to stay and what car you want to drive. Most pricing information is available here, and you can also contact Lapland directly about booking.
