As the ice thickens on the lakes of northern Finland, a very special circuit begins to take shape. On the edge of the Arctic Circle, a vast and frozen surface is turned into a driving course unlike any other.
It is the home of Bentley ‘Power on Ice’, an event that, we believe, goes beyond anything you will have experienced. Created especially for Bentley in this remote and beautiful part of the world, which – in the middle of winter – becomes the perfect playground for an all-wheel-drive vehicle.
And, in 2016, ‘Power on Ice’ is set to become even more extraordinary by the fact that you will be amongst the first to drive Bentayga. A car Bentley has developed by looking at the SUV through new eyes and one that will be very much at home among the snow and ice of the stunning Kuusamo region of Finland.
However, ‘Power on Ice’ goes way beyond driving, you can make the most of the stunning Arctic location with a range of more laid-back activities like lounging by a log fire in a lakeside lodge or enjoying an evening drink in the Ice Bar. If the adrenalin is still pumping, there’s snowmobiling, ice karting, a night-time Husky-sled adventure and a traditional Finnish smoke sauna.
Each guest receives two full days of driving and tuition with a dedicated instructor from the Bentley Ice Driving Team. You will see that – even on sheet ice – there’s plenty of speed to be found. Especially when it’s your turn to get behind the wheel of a Bentayga, a Flying Spur and a Continental (including the GT3-R). Uniquely, ice driving provides the thrills of an extreme sport, from the comfort of a hand-stitched, heated leather seat.
Finland has produced some of the greatest drivers the world has seen: rally champions, F1 champions and champion ice racers. Among them is four-time World Rally Champion Juha Kankkunen. All our guests will be fortunate enough to experience a ‘Hot Lap’ with Juha.
All this and the opportunity to make friends and experience true exhilaration in the company of like-minded people.
It’s what takes Power on Ice beyond a driving experience.
