Winter on Wheels in Finland

This is an exciting announcement…I’m heading to Finland very soon for a “Winter on Wheels” event in Rovaniemi, Finland. I’m going to get an opportunity to hone my snow and ice driving skills with a series of different kind of vehicles, including a Ford Escort rally car, ice karts and quad bikes.

Not only have I never been to a Scandinavian country, but this trip to Finland will allow me to scratch a few things off my bucket list. For starters, I will get to see the Northern Lights from one of the best places in the world, Lapland, Finland…at, one of the best times of the year. Next on the list…snowmobiling (aka Snow Machine)…I’ll finally get my chance to experience this adrenaline rush with the folks from Lapland Safaris. The third thing that will be scratched off the list will be staying in an ice hotel, called “SnowCastle.” The SnowCastle in located in Kemi and offers visitors a host of activities, including a SnowRestaurant, indoor playground for children, and, a SnowChapel.  Oh, this is going to be fun. Stay tuned for updates. Once I return to the states I’ll be working on a series of videos of my experience.
