The Experience

Join us for a very special experience 200 miles north of the Arctic Circle.

As the temperature plummets in Northern Finland, the landscape crystallises and sets the scene for what will be an unforgettable driving adventure. Within one of Finland’s most expansive winter testing facilities, you will discover the power and agility of the McLaren 570S by pushing your driving skills to the limit with the help of our professional coaches.

With its ice tracks specially designed for McLaren, this is the perfect winter wonderland to put the McLaren 570S and your driving, to the ultimate test.

An experience to remember

Set within a dedicated winter testing facility in Finland, the McLaren Ice Driving Centre encompasses over 100km of almost permanently frozen tracks, making this one of the most varied ice driving experiences in the world. When you’re in need of respite from the exhilaration of drifting around the ice and snow, you can relax by the warmth of the roaring fire in the McLaren Kota – a traditional Finnish building.

 

In the driving seat

Learning to drive on ice is a unique experience, one that will stay with you long after the snow has melted. Your experience will begin when you venture onto the frozen playground that is the McLaren Ice Driving Centre. Working with one of our Pure McLaren Driver Coaches you will manoeuvre at your own pace through a variety of track configurations encompassing both ice and snow surfaces. Once you’ve mastered the basics you will be ready to tackle faster and more dynamic layouts, putting your new skills to the test as you slide your McLaren through challenging twists and turns. Those who have visited us before have more exciting challenges ahead with our advanced driving programme.

 

Home from home

Nestled within the untamed Lappish wilderness is Jávri Lodge, built by Urho Kekkonen, the longest serving President of Finland. Set amongst vast lakes and forests, and in an ideal position for viewing the glorious Northern Lights, staying at Jávri is an intimate and special experience. The service today remains nothing short of presidential with a personalised concierge service, cuisine that celebrates the best of local ingredients and luxurious accommodation.

 

Adventures in the snow

The fast pace does not end on the track. Explore a magical winter landscape of snow-capped forests and frozen lakes with a snowmobile safari and husky sledding experience. Our non-driving guests will have the opportunity to further explore the Finnish wilderness with snowshoeing and a visit to the Sami reindeer herders. Here you will learn about the Sami way of life and hand-feed these magnificent creatures. Away from the Arctic cold non-drivers can also indulge in a luxury Finnish spa day with a traditional sauna.
