Our Iceland Winter Escape kicked off with an overnight experience with Arctic Trucks, a company that most known for modifying 4WD vehicles for use in rough environments like mountains and glaciers found throughout the countryside in Iceland.  We worked with the team at Arctic Trucks Experience to offer our group the opportunity to sit behind the wheel of specialized super trucks and do all the driving. Not many people have had the opportunity to sit behind the wheel of  powerful 4×4 in one of the world’s most unique places.

Our fleet of Arctic Trucks headed to Landmannalaugar, Iceland.

We traveled to Landmannalaugar Highlands in a guided self-drive caravan. After a brief overview of the vehicles and Iceland’s driving regulations, we were off.  Daily schedules were dictated by hours of sunlight (approx. 6 hours). We still managed to stop at gorgeous locations for photo op’s along the way.

Landmannalaugar mountain hut is a self-catering affair.

During peak summer travel, Landmannalaugar sees up to 10,000 visitors a day. We had the place all to ourselves.
