Driving in Finland means extreme conditions, and on winter driving tracks, anyone can test their skills on slippery surfaces. Put the pedal to the metal in regular cars, rally racers and snow karts!
Formula 1 and Rally world champions like Kimi Räikkönen, Mika Häkkinen and Juha Kankkunen have all honed their skills in the extreme driving conditions of Finland.
In the white wilderness of Finnish Lapland, several companies offer winter driving experiences in various motor vehicles. Rides are fast, but expert personnel make sure safety is never compromised. Driving courses are often most fun in groups, but many programmes are available for singles, too.
Juha Kankkunen Driving Academy, Kuusamo
Four times World Rally Champion Juha Kankkunen and his team of expert instructors will show you the knacks of winter driving on all levels. Dare you sit in a rally car with Juha himself driving at 200 km/h?
