The Curve LATE 2017 / EARLY 2018 EXPERIENCE Ice Academy Sweden The farthest flung reaches of the world are some of the most enchantingly desolate places – and their extremes of temperature and weather are the perfect place for Jaguar to put their cars through their paces. Arjeplog, located in the Swedish Arctic Circle, is where Jaguar’s vehicles undergo their extreme cold climate testing – and you too can get behind the wheel on this sub-zero test track with the Jaguar Land Rover Ice Academy. Arjeplog’s enormous Lake Hornavan, which freezes over completely in winter, is home to a range of shaped circuits that can calibrate the world’s most cutting-edge cars, with just the 1,800-strong population on the lake shore and some of our planet’s most stunning scenery for company. Get behind the wheel for a thrilling drive with the Jaguar Land Rover Ice Academy expert instructors, who will teach you the skills they use to push each new vehicle that passes through here to its limits. Have exhilarating fun driving the Jaguar F-TYPE and Jaguar F-PACE while developing the expertise to become a more confident driver. And do all of this in the Arctic tundra, with the aurora borealis shimmering in the sky above you while enjoying warm hospitality.
