If you ever fancied exploring the Arctic then aside from putting your life in the hands (or rather, paws) of wild dogs there’s only one true way to do it – in a nice, safe truck. And these days there are some pretty fancy vehicles knocking about that can help you experience one of the world’s most unique places in the relative lap of luxury.
Arctic Trucks Experience specialises in this by providing a range of guided self-drive tours in customised 4WD super-trucks. Based in Iceland, it offers winter breaks running from 1st October to 30th April that range from volcano treks to two-day adventures to half-day tours that introduce you to basic skills and techniques.
If you’re not so keen on sub-zero temperatures, choose from a range of “summer” tours that as you can imagine, offer quite a different experience due to the changing terrain, and those who are after more of a personal experience can just go ahead and rent a truck to experience the majesty of the Arctic on their own. Suddenly going to Iceland for a holiday sounds a lot more appealing.
