ALIVE ON ICE
‘ALIVE ON ICE’ is Jaguar’s bespoke ice driving experience. On the ice fields of Finland, we welcome drivers to challenge themselves and our cars in chillingly extreme conditions.
There’s only one place to experience ALIVE ON ICE. Finland. The nation that’s won more World Rally Championships than any other. For Finnish drivers, the ice, snow and powder are as welcoming as the smoothest tarmac.
Who better to introduce you to this frozen world than Finnish European Rally Champion Minna Sillankorva? So wrap up and belt up.
Every Jaguar is created to feel alive. Whatever the conditions. Wherever the journey. ALIVE ON ICE gives you the chance to develop vital driving skills as you test your limits in the perfect environment.
Jaguar’s Instinctive AWD gives you claw-like grip as you need it, and cat-like rear-wheel drive agility when you don’t. Those goose bumps aren't the cold, but the adrenaline rush.
To the cry of “Mush!” your team of dogs races off, pulling the sled with endless enthusiasm. There’s no more magical way to enjoy the beauty and stillness of the white wilderness. Only the panting of the huskies and whoosh of the runners breaks the wintry silence.
For more motorised fun, jump on the snowmobile and hit the ignition. Your ski-doo scoots through the pine forest and over the virgin snows of hills and valleys. Add to the rush on the ice lakes, where you can reach speeds of 80km/h.
Your ice-drive experience starts from the moment you step off the plane. You will be met by our Jaguar instructors and chauffeur-driven in our fleet of XJ and XF AWD to Håmeenlinna where you check into the Katinen Manor Hotel. Your accommodation will be in the stylish converted barns on the estate. You will be greeted by open fires, welcome drinks and the Jaguar Experience team.
