Arctic Trucks have a reputation that is second to none – They are the World Leaders in Specialist Exploration Vehicles.
Arctic Trucks vehicles are modified 4WD with the purpose of meeting the strictest requirements under the severest possible conditions, without any compromises in requirements for appearance and driving properties (for example in the mountains, on glaciers or in the desert). Their employees are absolutely the best people in the business, with many years of experience in modifications of various 4WD vehicles.
The cars have proved their qualities under the most severe conditions, travelling over terrain where no cars have ever been driven before. The cars have all the conveniences and driving properties that can be expected in modern cars, but also have the special advantage of being able to go where others don‘t dare or simply can’t even dream of!
Typical Users of Arctic Trucks include: Polar Exploration Teams, Research Organisations, Rescue Teams, Specialist Military Units, Police / Emergency Forces, Electrical Companies, etc., as well as ordinary people who need cars that suit their lifestyle.
Arctic Trucks has participated in three major expedition projects outside of Iceland.
The first one was an expedition to the Antarctica, organized by the Swedish Polar Institute in cooperation between Sweden, Norway and Finland in 1997/1998.
In the spring of 1999 Arctic Trucks took part in an expedition across the icecap of Greenland, where the participants drove in the footsteps of Fridtjov Nansen, the first man ever to cross the Greenland icecap.
The latest project of Arctic Trucks was an expedition with BBC Television‘s Top Gear show, Toyota GB and Polar Challenge to the Magnetic North Pole.
All these expeditions were unique since it was the first time automobiles were driven in these regions. Expeditions are of great importance to Arctic Trucks, they provide the ultimate test of the design and a unique opportunity to try out the vehicles under the worst possible conditions.
