The Bentley Power on Ice events take place near Kuusamo, in the north-eastern corner of the province of Oulo, Finland. This is home to Ruka, an area that has developed into an exclusive skiing resort around the Rukatunturi fell.
It is the home of Bentley ‘Power on Ice’, an event that, we believe, goes beyond anything you will have experienced. Created especially for Bentley in this remote and beautiful part of the world, which – in the middle of winter – becomes the perfect playground for an all-wheel-drive vehicle.
And, in 2016, ‘Power on Ice’ became even more extraordinary by the fact that we were amongst the first to drive Bentayga. A car Bentley has developed by looking at the SUV through new eyes and one that is much at home among the snow and ice of the stunning Kuusamo region of Finland. Driver's were also behind the wheel of the Flying Spur and Continental (including the GT3-R) for an exhilarating drive and experiencing the thrills of an extreme sport, from the comfort of a hand-stitched, heated leather steering wheel.
Guest’s embarked upon a 4 day action packed trip which included, Driving on the Ice Lakes instructed by the Bentley Driving Team, a husky dog sled adventure through the beautiful landscape, a ‘hot lap’ with World Rally Champion Juha Kankkunen, and also took time to relax in the traditional Finnish smoke sauna and Jacuzzi in the boutique hotel surrounded with breath-taking views.
Jan Casey was lucky enough to join our guests and said, 'The Ice Driving was an incredible experience and exceeded all expectations. Over the 4 days I was in Finland, I met some wonderful people and shared some unforgettable moments. The Bentley team executed the finer details exceptionally and delivered outstanding hospitality'.
We would like to say a big thank you to the guest’s that joined us, and the Bentley team for an unforgettable Ice Driving experience.
