Millions of television viewers around the world witnessed the mighty Toyota Hilux becoming the first car to be driven to the Magnetic North Pole, with Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson at the wheel.
Now Tachoblog can tell you that intrepid drivers have the chance to get behind the wheel of a similarly awesome Hilux and test their skills across the frozen wastes in a new range of adventure off-roading tours.

Reykjavik-based Arctic Trucks, the specialist company which engineered the Hilux to cope with the extreme conditions of the Top Gear challenge, is offering trips of between two and five days and longer expeditions through the wild landscape of Iceland. Its fleet of vehicles includes two Toyota Hilux Invincible Double Cabs equipped with special features to meet the demands of tackling the country’s tundra, glaciers, lava fields and mountains, including a set of giant 38-inch tyres that allow the vehicle to traverse deep snow and thin ice.
Arctic Trucks began business as part of Toyota Iceland in 1990 and has since built up impressive experience and a worldwide reputation for modifying 4WD vehicles for use in extreme conditions. Toyota models prepared by the company have supported expeditions to both the North and South poles, outperforming more familiar arctic vehicles such as half-tracks and Snowmobiles.
Sounds great, unlike Tachoblog’s dreadful snow pun in this post’s title!
