Outside temperatures were dropping as low as -22C during the day in a Siberian blast across Europe but the climate controls inside the Range Rovers were keeping occupants as warm as toast.
The winter driving sessions include training about accelerating and braking in snow as well as dealing with steering on ice and side slides.
The adventure also gave drivers the chance to try out the so-called Big Foot vehicles – two specially converted Defenders which use giant tyres to conquer deep snow.
The Nordic holiday is already a sell out and is one of two adventure trips being organised by Land Rover this year – the second being an eight day expedition to Tanzania to track the Great Migration.
Taking place throughout September and October, customers will follow the two million strong herd of wildebeest, gazelle and zebra making their way across the plains of Africa in search of good grazing. For this excursion Land Rover will be using Discovery 4 vehicles through the Serengeti National Park and also to the famous Ngorongoro Crater. Guests will also get the chance to take a hot air balloon ride over the reserve.
Prices are still to be confirmed by Land Rover but will be in the region of £8,500 per person, excluding flights to Nairobi.
