Iceland – Ice-driving

In its usual form, ice-driving involves haring round a special circuit (often a frozen lake) and occasionally spinning off into the surrounding snow banks. This can be done at many French ski resorts, notably Val Thorens and Alpe d’Huez. But an interesting variation is the Superjeep Weekend Safari with tour operator Arctic Experience (01737 218 800; it involves driving into the wilds of Iceland in a convoy of modified off-road vehicles fitted with huge studded tyres.
