Iceland is home to some seriously cool trucks, many prepared for glacier travel. On my last trip to Iceland, I took a bunch of photos of the various vehicles.
FULL ARTICLE: Trucks of Iceland
These are the trucks we used at various points of the trip-
HiLux on 44" tires - used for crevasse rescue training
HZJ78 Land Cruiser on 44" tires- used to cross the largest glacier in Europe
HiLux on 42" MTRs- used for local transport
Tacoma on 38s with a full long-travel suspension. Look for a full feature on this soon
Diesel 60 series- used to cross to Langjökull glacier
Prado on 38s- Sinuhe and I drove across Langjokull with this truck
There are tons more cool trucks from the trip. One of my personal favorites, a bone-stock Defender that you can rent from Hertz - awesome
It is impressive how well these trucks work with the big tires. Not only on the glaciers but in many other surfaces. Every bump and rock impact is much less with a 38" tire.
