Welcome to

The Arctic Drive

We deliver the ultimate private Northern Lights driving experience located in Tromsø, Norway.


The Arctic Drive is operated by an adventurous family who have traveled and tested a number of different concepts. Now we want to share our expertise and do something even better for adventurous tourists in Northern Norway. With our hometown Tromsø as a starting point, we can take you on short or long trips with one of our six Arctic Trucks vehicles, made world famous when they drove all the way to the North Pole with the TV program Top Gear.

On our trips you will experience the arctic nature and its challenges in a spectacular way. We offer short trips in just a few hours to the more luxurious trips that span over multiple days.

The family consists of Kjetil who takes care of planning and also likes to surprise with some bouncy experiences. Trine takes care of the logistics so that everyone has a great experience from beginning to end, while our youngsters Lise, Ina, Lone and Stine will make everyone feel comfortable with their language and social skills. There will also be professional truck drivers available, in case you do not want to drive yourself.

      Our Cars

      2 x AT38

      Toyota Hilux AT38 was used to drive to the Magnetic North Pole with the British TV show Top Gear in 2007 where it carried the film crew 1400 kilometers, over sea ice, bolder fields and number of small islands. Toyota Hilux AT38 will be stationed at SANEA, the South African research station in Antarctica from 2011.

      1 x JEEP35

      With the AT37 modification the Hilux is ready to tackle most snow and ice conditions in Antarctica. The tire pressure can be adjusted to changing conditions, from soft snow to hard ice. Ice screws give the vehicle great traction on blue ice and the softness of the tires smoothens out uneven terrain providing a comfortable ride. While the capabilities have been improved the service and running cost is still similar to a standard Hilux.
