Video: Saab Arctic Adventure

From the Trollhattan blog….

We do this event every year at Saab and it gives us a chance to share our Scandinavian roots. The Arctic Adventure is like entering another world and although it is fun, it is also useful too. Learning how to control a car in these conditions makes you a better driver – and you also get to appreciate just what a Saab car is really capable of.

Saab Ice Driving

So…..

A few weeks ago I got an email from some tourism company, wanting some photos of Saabs driving on ice. They were going to be promoting the Ice Hotel in Sweden.

I put them in touch with Saab’s PR people so they’d have a shot at getting the best possible photo rather than the few I could direct them to.

This is what they got. I thought it was so excellent that I’d share it here as well.

Pardon the pun, but that’s so cool.

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.

UPDATE
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!
