posted in: Expedition Vehicles | 0

During Christmas Week (2017), Gunnar received an offer to buy his Expedition Vehicle 1, which was out for sale on – Which he accepted.

This sale, forms the closure of a great / fun period of exploration trips with this vehicle, from its initial purchase (Arctic Trucks 1 Acquired) in preparation for IC2015, though many interesting trips around Norway (Holiday BBQ & Road Trip: Dreki Adventures & ICE2017) and of course ICE2017.



At the moment, there are no plans to replace this, with a new expedition vehicle.


We will all miss Expedition Vehicle 1……….

It’s been part of our history the last few years.

Fun: Hardest Karaoke Song in the World

posted in: Education | 0

Iceland Magazine have a new fun article: Brush up on your Icelandic by singing world’s hardest karaoke song


Here is a fun video, just released by Inspired by Iceland.

If you are interested in learning to speak Icelandic, this one is for you 🙂


To become an Icelander you must either fill out stacks of paperwork, or you can try to pass for one by learning how to say fun words like plokkfiskur and hringvegur!

That’s at least according to “The Hardest Karaoke Song in the World”.

One of Iceland’s most popular comedians? Steinþór Hróar Steinþórsson, or Steindi Jr as he is known
(Steinþórs father’s name is Steinþór, and a common abbreviation of Steinþór ís Steindi)
created this catchy tune for the Icelandic tourism board’s campaign Inspired by Iceland.

Steindi also offers a few bits and pieces of crucial advice for first time visitors:
Don’t trample the moss, wash thoroughly without swimsuit before entering the pool, and drive carefully on the gravel roads:





FOR SALE : Expedition Vehicle 1

posted in: Expedition Vehicles | 0

Following our return from Iceland in August, Gunnar has been busy repairing, fixing and cleaning Expedition Vehicle 1, ready for sale.


Today, Gunnar published a sales advert on, to begin the sales process.

FINN-kode: 100596790 (




Expedition Vehicle 1 was the first Arctic Trucks car owned by Neil and Gunnar, who bought equal shares in October 2014.

It will be quite sad to see the “old faithful” Expedition Vehicle 1 disappear.

It’s certainly explored a lot of Iceland in its time…

and provided some fantastic memorable moments and experiences !!!


We hope that a genuine Arctic Trucks enthusiast will take it on, and continues to use it as designed – as an “expedition vehicle”.


Please contact Gunnar directly, via the advert link above, if you are interested in buying.



Neil Seeks New Job

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Now that we are back in Norway, and all the equipment has been cleaned, fixed, sorted, and placed into storage, we need to return to normality.


Tuva and Dina have returned to school, whilst Anja and Gunnar have returned to their jobs.


However, for Neil this is a challenge, as he is still out of work (unemployed), and is still seeking new career / work opportunities in the Sandnes / Stavanger region, Norway.


If anyone knows of any job opportunities in this area, now or into the future, please feel free to contact Neil.


Thanks a lot for your considerations…….

4500km Round Trip

posted in: Agenda, Tracking System | 0

We have now collated all the Tracking Data, and from the Trip Master on Expedition Vehicle 2 dashboard, the total distance covered during ICE2017 was 4,500km.


Map below displays collated data set, showing almost everywhere we drove during our ICE2017 travels.

However, some occasional roads we driven with only Expedition Vehicle 2 – without Tracking System to record the route.


As you can clearly see, we once again “circumnavigated” the whole of Iceland…



What is also interesting about this 4,500 km value, is that it is coincidentally almost identical to the total distance covered during ICE2015.


We initially expected to drive more, but due to change of Agenda plans and routes taken, following our unfortunate horse riding accident during Day 27,
the total distance was reduced from the initial estimate of 5,000-6,000 km.


When we combine the Tracking Data sets from both ICE2015 and ICE2017, the map below clearly shows how extensively we have explored Iceland during our last 2 expeditions.



As you can clearly see, we have certainly “circumnavigated” the whole of Iceland…


However, what is clearly missing, is our exposure to the central interior of Iceland.

We had plans on ICE2017 Agenda to experience and cross this area on more than one event, but these had to be postponed until future expedition events.


We hope you enjoyed following us on our daily blogs, and our daily Tracking Data maps.

It’s been interesting to see how it came together, as we progressed during our travels.

Adventure as a Mindset

posted in: Education | 0

Just wanted to share these short articles with you, from Richard Branson (Virgin Group).


Adventure as a Mindset

My Top 10 Quotes on Adventure


Kind of fits our mindset for ICE2017 Team.


Even when the going gets tough, if you have adventure as your mindset, you will look for ways around your problem, rather than giving up.

We can all achieve great things, if we put our mind to it.

By embracing the spirit of adventure, we can test ourselves, push our boundaries, learn lots, and laugh along the way.




I certainly like the Overland Bound sticker (Adventure is Necessary) we have mounted on our Exploration Vehicles.
