Ice Driver takes place in a remote and beautiful part of Sweden, close to the border with Norway. While you don’t need to be Ray Mears to get here, there are some simple things to consider when packing that will help you get the best from stay with us. Some will be quite obvious, but others are the things you only realise once you’re here and it’s too late!
The daytime temperature is zero or below, dropping to -35 at night. The dry atmosphere means the snow is nothing like the sloppy stuff you see in the UK, it’s lovely winter sports type powder.
Here’s A List Of Things to Bring:
Lots of layers that can be easily added and removed.
A silly hat and some gloves.
Normal footwear for driving plus something with a grippy sole for general walking.
If you’ve a pair of cool Sparco boots for driving in, they’re about as warm as in-flight slippers when you’re standing on a frozen lake, so bring something with a thicker sole for when you’re not driving.
Sunglasses for the glare from the lake.
Sun cream and lip balm.
If you’re coming from the UK, obtain an E-111 card if you don’t already have one from The post Office or online from The Department of Health here>>> . This ensures free health care anywhere in the EU.
Video cameras and digital cameras! And don’t forget the spare batteries and memory cards – cards are cheap, so shoot lots of pictures
