The events are based in a small town in Lapland, Finland called Kemi, situated on the shores of the Bothnian Bay. Kemi is known for the world´s largest Snowcastle that is now starting it´s 23rd season. Kemi is the world´s only location with ice driving circuits built on the frozen sea ice.

The Seaside Glass Villa accommodation that are next to the ice driving circuits was nominated the winner of the World Luxury Hotel Awards 2018 so a night under the starts and the Northern lights will well impress your partner.

There are many other winter activities to book if you do travel to Lapland Finland. Snowmobile safari on the wast open sea ice, the icebreaker experience, try the traditional Finnish Sauna or drive a Tesla Model S and Model 3 on ice. 

The maximum booking amount of 10 drivers per event day can be extended to 20 drivers per day. This would mean a cheaper discounted rate for a group of 20 drivers per group. 

 
The price is 490€ per person, when 4 persons are sharing 1 car. This discounted option of 20 drivers per group is available only for the Subaru owners club.
