La­p­land Ice Driv­ing takes place a stone's throw from the Arc­tic Cir­cle in a charm­ing Swedish vil­lage, Ar­je­plog, with about 2000 in­hab­i­tants. A ma­jes­tic frozen lake spread­ing over 1,200 hectares with tem­per­a­tures rang­ing from -5 to -40°C with oc­ca­sional dis­plays of the sub­lime north­ern lights.

Eric Gal­lardo, au­to­mo­tive en­gi­neer, for­mer test driver and race driver, de­cided to es­tab­lish La­p­land Ice Driv­ing in 2006.

Al­most 50km of track is traced out here, in­clud­ing tech­ni­cal and speed cir­cuits. Among these are full-scale ex­act re­pro­duc­tions
