Arctic Trucks in Antarctica
Since 1997 Arctic Trucks has modified vehicles for several expeditions. Arctic Trucks has also provided drivers and mechanics that have participated in all the expeditions.
Arctic Trucks is a logistic service provider that has been operating in Antarctica since 2008. The Arctic Trucks vehicles have already changed transportations on the continent. Expeditions are of great importance to Arctic Trucks, enabling us to increase our level of knowledge and the overall quality of our modification work.

Arctic Trucks has pioneered faster and more efficient ways to travel on the Antarctica Plateau, giving every explorer access to this wonderful and thrilling continent.
You will fly from Punta Arenas, Chile, and land on runway made of solid ice. After a short rest at Union Glacier, Antarctica, a ski airplane will take the adventurers to the Amundsen coast, refueling at ThielsCorner, where the Arctic Trucks driving team will be waiting at base camp—the starting point of the expedition..

"I may say that this is the greatest factor - the way in which the expedition is equipped - the way in which every difficulty is foreseen, and precautions taken for meeting or avoiding it. Victory awaits him who has everything in order - luck, people call it. Defeat is certain for him who has neglected to take the necessary precautions in time; this is called bad luck."
-from The South Pole, by Roald Amundsen.
