We deliver the ultimate 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.
Kjetil has worked as a firefighter and photographer for the last ten years. He has used his spare time to travel around europe and USA trying out various popular tourist attractions. Now he knows what it takes to provide successful experience for you. Kjetil put safety first and is the one to talk to when it comes to these special cars.
Trine has spent her entire career in kindergarden and made sure that children have the best opportunities to develop. We also wish that you should be able to develop on the trip with us, so she was the natural choice to have on the team. Trine will be the one to talk to if you have any questions about the tours.
For your own safety, we only use firefighters who have trained with emergency driving in case you do not want to drive the car. Please inform us when booking your trip if you can´t drive yourself.
OPERATED BY A LOCAL FAMILY - FOR CURIOUS AND ADVENTUROUS PEOPLE
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.
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.
