About Arctic Trucks

The origin of Arctic Trucks can be traced back to 1990 when Toyota in Iceland started to modify 4wd Utility and Sport Utility Vehicles. This business has over the years taken us a long way, building up great experience and knowledge that has given us a world renowned expertise in the field of SUV modifications. We do have a great respect for Nature and we encourage our customers to tread lightly and avoid travelling over any terrain that could possibly be damaged by the vehicles.

Arctic Trucks now operates independent from Toyota distributor, working together with several car importers, as well as individuals.

Arctic Trucks vehicles are modified 4WD with the purpose of meeting the strictest requirements under the severest possible conditions, without any compromises in requirements for appearance and driving properties. Our employees are absolutely the best people in the business, with many years of experience in modifications of various 4WD vehicles.

The cars have proved their qualities under the most severe conditions, travelling over terrain where no cars have ever been driven before. The cars have all the conveniences and driving properties that can be expected in modern cars, but also have the special advantage of being able to go where others don‘t dare or simply can’t even dream of!
