“ I had great pleasure in participating in Eric Gallardo’s ice driving course in Lapland.
The 2-day course was run very professionally, with a fantastic ambiance which allied
professionalism to a warm and friendly reception.
The instructors are exceptionally capable drivers themselves and well able to teach
the finer points of skid control; it was a pleasure to be assisted by them.
Not only are the cars beautifully maintained, but the vehicle fleet is varied and each car
is exciting to drive. I can only recommend such a thrilling experience.”

We just can’t wait to go back for more.”

“ I have just returned from my third visit to Lapland and I seem to enjoy it more each time. The welcome and hospitality that my friends and I receive each time from Eric
and his team is amazing and the driving instruction from such gifted drivers is phenomenal.
Everything is organized so well, the cars are so meticulously prepared and the instructors seem to have an infinite amount of patience and courage.
Just as my courage runs out at over 100 mph, the instructors are always prompting me to go faster by shouting gas, gas, gas!
This is truly the perfect place to learn how to drive in very safe conditions and to master skid control.”

“The combination of technical and speed circuits really is the difference compared with
other driving centers in Scandinavia. Thanks to the best equipment and to the instructors at my side, I not only had a great deal of fun,
but also massively improved my ice driving skills.
If drifting in second or third gear does not excite you anymore, then only Lapland Ice Driving can do something about that.”

“ After the “uninspiring” manufacturers’ driving experiences, we discovered the pleasure of moving on to a Porsche GT3, or a Gallardo, with instructors who were able to reveal unsuspected talents in mastering the drift. Unbelievably fast progress at each stage – take care, you’ll be quickly addicted!”

“I have had the most wonderful experiences at the Lapland Ice Driving facility in Arjeplog, Sweden. Though the prospects of driving high performance vehicles on a frozen lake in far below sub zero temperatures may seem exciting, you could be forgiven for feeling slightly intimidated. I know I did on my first trip out there. However, no sooner than you sit behind the wheel for the first time, you feel instantly reassured by the highly skilled and professional driving instructors. While the ambient temperature may be bone chillingly cold, the atmosphere is very warm and welcoming thanks to the cheerful and infinitely patient team! The vehicles and the tracks are extremely well maintained and the whole outfit is run at an incredibly high standard by Eric Gallardo. I thoroughly enjoyed both of my trips to Lapland and cannot wait to visit again soon.”

“ Enjoy the magical surroundings, spend a day mastering the drift in awesome vehicles such as the Porsche GT3, and improve one’s know-how thanks to super instructors: what a hard job! It’s clear that the skills we’ve learnt from this experience will certainly be useful to the Haribo Porsche Racing Team on the track!”
