Arctic Trucks' tours of the North Pole - Click above for high-res image gallery

When Top Gear went to the North Pole - actually, to be specific, when Jeremy Clarkson and James May went to the North Pole, they went in a Toyota Hilux prepared by Arctic Trucks in Iceland. Richard Hammond went via sled-and-dog-team, which, believe it or not, looked a lot less comfortable than the satnav-equipped Hilux.

In what seems like a predictable (yet awesome) result of that odyssey, Arctic Trucks is now offering multi-day tours of Iceland in their ultimately prepped Toyotas. Having just returned from a trip to Reykjavik and the glaciers - sadly not with these blokes - we can tell you it would be an excursion you will never forget. No, it isn't the North Pole, but we'd argue it might be even better: more variety and nicer people, and no polar bears.

Follow the jump to read the press release on Arctic Trucks' offerings, and to watch video of Top Gear's epic polar expedition as seen in three parts. Photos your of your balloon-tired chariot can be found in the high-res gallery below.
