About Arctic Trucks Experience
Arctic Trucks has been modifying vehicles for over 25 years, first only in Iceland but now we have operation in over 6 countries and operating tours both in Iceland and in Antarctica. Arctic Trucks Experience offers private super jeep tours in the Icelandic highlands where you do the driving. The vehicles are modified Toyota Hilux and Toyota Land Cruiser on 38“ tires and they are all 2015 and 2016 models. The Arctic Trucks guide will teach you everything you need to know for driving the vehicle in the highlands. You will be a part of the whole trip; deflating the tires, using the shovel and rope, driving on difficult roads and crossing rivers. You will learn what super jeep tours in the Icelandic highlands are all about! The Arctic Trucks guides are all experienced in travelling in the highlands and in tough conditions, many of them have been guiding trips to Antarctica and also work in the Arctic Trucks garage. The tour selection online is just to give you an idea on what we have to offer, the tours are always private so we are very flexible with the itinerary. Usually our trips are a mix of popular sights and the isolated highland roads.

Away from the tour buses in fact, away from anything that won’t ford rivers and wade through as much as 18” of slush! Asgeir, our guide, took us on a spectacular adventure to places seen typically only in the summer. And, we had the great...More

Yes, no problem for elderly to do this tour in November. It is a private tour with a guide in a good vehicle.
