Bored? You could spend €11k to drive a Bentley on a frozen Finnish lake

If you’re looking for Christmas gift ideas, this might not be one.

IF YOU’VE GOT €11k to spare – and sure, who doesn’t – and know someone who really loves driving, Bentley has just the thing.

The luxury carmaker is selling a travel package for the frozen lakes in the north of Finland, where visitors get to hone their driving skills in a whiteknuckle way.

On the “Power On Ice” trip, customers spend two days with professional driving instructors who teach them to drive on ice, from slamming on the pedal and going for speed to drifting around a turn.

They also get a night-time husky sled ride, time in a Finnish smoke sauna, snowmobiling, and dinner at a reindeer farm.

To get from Helsinki to northern Finland, Bentley charters a private flight. (They’ve got to get Helsinki on their own, however. Shocking.)

The base price of the trip is €10,840, and will get you a night in a bedroom at the Chalet Ruka Peak retreat. If you want fancier digs, you’ll have to shell out more cash:

Ruka Peak Apartments: €11,840

Ruka Peak Deluxe Apartments: €12,840

Ruka Peak Cottages: €13,390

Or you could take your bicycle to the nearest pop-up ice rink. We’re sure it’s exactly the same.
