Bentley has announced the Bentayga crossover will celebrate its ice driving debut at the company's next Power on Ice event.

This year's event kicks off on January 27th and will provide participants with an "unforgettable" four-day experience that will enable them to push an assortment of Bentley models to their limits on a series of specially designed ice tracks.

The event includes two days of ice driving training from the Bentley Ice Driving Team. The instruction is led by four-time World Rally Champion and two-time ice-speed record holder Juha Kankkunen who will also be on hand to take visitors on fast laps of the track.

When participants aren't on the track, they'll be enjoying a relaxing time at the Chalet Ruka Peak which offers contemporary Finnish cuisine and a traditional smoke sauna.  Participants can also rent snowmobiles and enjoy "night time husky-sled safaris to an historic reindeer farm."

Prices start at €11,900 per person but participants can also book even more exclusive accommodations.

As for the Bentayga, drivers can look forward to the crossover's twin-turbo 6.0-liter W12 engine that produces 608 PS (600 bhp / 447kW) and 900 Nm (663 lb-ft) of torque.  It is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission and a four-wheel drive system which enables the model to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.0 seconds before hitting a top speed of 187 mph (301 km/h).
