A 2 day Arctic Truck adventure where you drive on one of Europe’s largest glaciers and camp on the glacier! A trip for the thrill-seekers that includes also some of Iceland’s most breathtaking beauty. Arctic Trucks Experience offers guided Iceland tours in the amazing highlands where you do all the driving!
Are you in for one of Iceland’s most adventurous tours? Then the glacier experience is what you are looking for! A trip that will insist on your focus and skills!
After choosing the perfect glacier to explore, you will have a quick briefing at the Arctic Trucks headquarters. You will get to meet the glacier expert that will embark upon this journey with you and get you safe and sound back home. The Arctic Trucks set sails from the headquarters and you are taken on an amazing trip where you get to see breathtaking nature as you have never seen before!
When the Arctic Trucks arrive at the magnificent snow-covered glacier, the tires will be deflated and the guide leads you on a safe path on the glacier. Once the sun is lower on the sky everyone will help set up camp and prepare dinner for the hungry explorers.
In the wintertime it is one of the most magical things to see the Northern Lights above your heads before you crawl into the cozy sleeping bags.
When the sun rises on the next day, everyone packs up the camping gear and start heading towards civilization. On the way back, you get to drive on rough mountain roads, cross rivers and witness the spectacular gifts that the earth has blessed Icelandic nature with.
Glacier Experience is a challenging trip. It is an extreme experience but you are in the safe hands of the guide, who might have to make a last-minute decision according to weather conditions. All trips depend on weather conditions and this one is not an exception!
