Dippen’s noted a forum member over at the Saab Turbo Club of Sweden who’s visited the Ice Hotel at Jukkasjärvi, where Saab have been hosting the Ice Adventure for a number of years and where they’ve been introducing the press to the Saab 9-3x in the last few weeks.
There’s now a website for what they’re calling The Arctic Adventure and whilst you need a login to access it, there’s a fantastic introductory film that’s worth watching at the start.
The guy from STCS also has an online photo album of the trip, which includes some fantastic photos.
From the film at the start, I think the experience is pretty similar to the one hosted in years past.
Our unofficial Saab Ambassaor to the UK, Robin M, took part in the Ice Experience with his wife a few years ago and sent in an account, which I published on Trollhattan Saab back in 2006 (more great photos there, too).
I’d absolutely love to do this trip one day. I just hope it’s around long enough for me to get the chance.
The photos belong to gindemo and he’s be kind enough to link us up with his video of the event.
It’s a short piece, around 3 minutes.

Thanks gindemo, and congratulations on scoring such a great trip!
