you are most likely reading this review wondering if you should do the Arctic Truck Experience, the simple answer is most definitely yes, yes, yes. Our trip began answer 8.30am when we were met answer to our hotel by our guide Benedict, we left our hotel and we're shown our transport, the amazing toyota hilux which had had the same value of the vehicle spent on modifications including huge 38" tires. Over the next eight hours our trip lead us to some of the most remote and breathtaking parts of iceland that are only accessible by something as special as the hilux. We traveled over rivers, across glaciers, up a mountain, to waterfalls and volcanoes. Through it the day Benedict was always and hand with the most interesting info and stories about iceland. This really is a once in a lifetime experience and for the day you too can drive a truck made by the same company that Built the Top Gear truck that Jeremy Clarkson and James May drove to the north pole. Don't hesitate and get booked, you will not regret it.

We did all the trips and they were all good but this took it to a different level!! Our guide(Sven) was full of interesting information and had an amazing knowledge of the area and showed us all the best places to see and drive....I did all the driving under his careful eye and giving me the benefit of his off road experience!! Can’t wait to go back ...it might cost a little more but it’s worth every penny and maybe a little bit more

We selected to drive the Land Cruiser and chose a day trip at Þórsmörk and Eyjafjallajökull where we visited glaciers, falls, volcano and canyons. We drove over streams and rocks and it was a one-of-a-kind experience. The updated, well-maintained vehicles as well as our awesome guide, Inge, gave us full confidence to learn how to navigate in land or water. We not only experienced the unique drive but saw, felt and enjoyed the best of Iceland in a day. BTW, we did not decide to tour Iceland first, it was because of the Arctic Trucks Experience that we decided to tour in Iceland! It is worth better than any excursion we have taken in any part of the world so far...

The only way to truly see Iceland...you as a driver, but only if you want to drive, and a guide in a beautiful Toyota Hilux. It's where you want to go, when you want to go, with a highly qualified, knowledgeable driver/guide and instructor. What excitement..me at 74 years old driving in deep snow, up a steep incline, down into a river and actually driving in the river splashing water every which way! SO, SO MUCH FUN!!!

We had a blast on our half day trip out in the mountains. We had our children with us, and they loved it. We got first hand experience and a 101 on how to drive in deep snow. We had a great tour guide that worked hard when I got our car stuck in the snow. After the trip up in the mountains, the guide took us to a cave system. It was an awesome experience for the whole family.

Would recommend it to all!

A day me and my son will never forget. Playing in an At38 HiLux and having a blast! Learned new skills, got some great experiences, and the Glacier experience and off-road driving really capped it off. Joi was a great guide who really knows his trucks! We’ll be back!

This is a great tour if you have the chance to do it, the ultimate hi-lux and when snowmobiling got to go inside an ice cave on the Langjökull glacier, we enjoyed the experience so much that we are considering going back next summer time to do a few days tour of the Highlands. I would definitely use and recommend Arctic trucks experience as they were very proffessional and our guide Gummi was really knowledgeable and made the experience perfect, thanks guys. 👍

This company is so cool. I booked the Ice Cave not realizing that the customer does ALLL the driving.

I am an adrenaline junkie and gravitate to thrilling adventures. After I got over the shock of seeing the guide in the passenger seats, I grabbed a quad-espresso and took the reigns.

The view through the countryside (Reykjavík to Ice Cave) looked like a movie set. The art of driving was pretty average until we got near the glacier. HOLY CANOLI‼️

Arctic Trucks are Toyota pick-ups that have been modified to handle Iceland conditions.

There were only two of us on the tour. We got to share and learn a great deal with our guide. We stopped at a few waterfalls, a hot spring, and at a resort for lunch.

But the crown jewel was me being able to drive the truck up the Langjokull glacier. Wow, wow.

There were a bunch of switches, buttons and a portable GPS in the cab that the guide used to manage how the truck performed.

It looked like I was driving in the clouds, amongst angels... the swirling wind, drifting snow and pure whiteness was ominous and empowering. Heavenly Armageddon. Weird and wonderful.

Then there was the “Into The Cave” ice cave tour... it was warmer inside the ice cave than it was on the glacier. I will review the Ice Cave separately since it is a different company.

I have traveled to all 7 continents— I skydive, scuba dive, snow ski, race boats, fly helicopters, etc... driving up the glacier ranks with the most memorable of my excursions.

Experience driving a manual useful.

Arna was our guide... I recommend him highly. He customized the tour for us and tackled the glacier when other operators canceled.

We chose the three day Mountain Hut Experience by Arctic Trucks for our most recent trip to Iceland. It truly was a proper adventure! After a first day of driving, we spent the night at a cabin at Kerlingarfjoll. And were lucky enough to see the Northern Lights while there. Our second day of driving took us to Landmannalaugar in the highlands. A remote and beautiful place. When we tried to leave Landmannalaugar on day three, we were stopped by poor visibility (we only drove ~1 mile in 4 hours). Our guide, Jon, wisely suggested we stay another night at the mountain hut. The next day we were able to make it out and back to Reykjavik without any problem. Our guide Jon was just great. Very knowledgeable and friendly, he took excellent care of us. As did Arctic Trucks. In the months before our trip they answered every question we had about our upcoming adventure quickly and with care. We couldn't have had a better experience!
