Are you a real snow and ice lover and does your heart beat faster for adventurous rides in your BMW? Then this is the 'Once in a Lifetime' experience for you! Together with our partner driftsport.nl we organise an unforgettable trip to Norway in February/March 2023. A journey between the impressive snowy landscapes, fairytale-like roads and views and a lot of ice and driving fun with BMWs. We would like to take you on this special trip to experience this adventure in beautiful Norway.
We fly early in the morning from Schiphol to Oslo, where we drive with a rental car on an inland route of about 5 hours to our hotel in Geilo. The route partly leads you over private roads, which gives you the most beautiful landscapes and fairy-like views. Upon arrival at the hotel, you can relax in the spa or the cosy bar. We conclude the day with a joint dinner.
The next morning, after breakfast, we leave for Dagali, the place where we will go ice riding. Here we are welcomed by the instructors, who explain and instruct us about driving on ice. On the first day we will drive with cars fitted with tyres with low spikes. On the basis of a slalom course and a longer course on the ice, you will learn what it is like to have little grip with these cars. You will also experience the difference between front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive and how you can drive ideal lines to set a fast time, despite limited grip. At the end of the afternoon we return to the hotel in Geilo and hope to spot moose on the way. Afterwards, we'll go on a real Norwegian snowmobile ride. In the evening, we'll enjoy an extensive dinner together.
On the third day we go back to Dagali, this time the same cars are waiting, but with high spikes on the tyres. This provides more grip and so it is possible to drive over the ice at a higher speed. After getting used to driving on ice yesterday, you will now expand your skills on different courses, where you will receive individual instruction to learn the tricks of the trade. Have you mastered this? Then it's time to start a competition against the other participants. Will you win the "Grand Prix of Dagali"?
On day four, after breakfast, we depart for Oslo Airport to fly back to Amsterdam.
Anyone can register for this exclusive event. In order to give you personal attention, we can accommodate a minimum of 8 and a maximum of 12 participants.
The costs for the flight, the hire car, the ice-riding, the hotel, the toll on the private roads, the snow scooter trip, breakfast, lunch and dinner are included in the price. Only drinks during dinner and in the bar have to be paid for separately.
