Monster of a Truck

We are proud to present our latest addition to our fleet, a monster of a truck!

What kind of mammoth does it take to traverse Europe’s 2nd largest glacier, being big and sturdy enough to even cross some of the glacier’s crevices and snowy hills? Well, we found the answer… Meet BovMan II, our fleet’s latest addition. Some call it a super truck or a monster truck. Still, others call it a glacier truck. The Japanese call it the ultra truck, perhaps with affinity to the ultra man. Whatever you wish to call it, this beast packs a punching power of a 470 hp diesel engine and a 20-ton body, indeed there are few places this brute cannot get to. Perfect for the Icelandic highlands and glaciers, we love taking travelers around our scenic and untouched landscapes on this monster of a truck.

 

Truck Iceland

 

With capacity for 58 passengers, the Goliath can take smaller or larger groups around Iceland’s highlands on breathtaking journeys. Included is Wi-Fi, speaker system for tour guides and air-conditioner with individual air controls. We would love to take your group to the top of Langjökull glacier during the evening and watch the stars and the northern lights dancing in the night sky. Or take you around the beautiful streams and mountains of Þórsmörk. Whatever you wish, we can make it happen. With its huge tires, it will give a stunning view and Kodak moments wherever it may take you. Please let us take you and your group of family and friends on an adventure of a lifetime, traversing through Iceland’s magical landscape in the comforts and safety of unstoppable mighty machinery. For individual quotes, please contact us.

Varnir gegn smitsjúkdómum.

Íslenska

Okkur hjá Mountaineers of Iceland er mjög hugað að öryggi og heilsu starfsmanna og viðskiptavina okkar.  Það er okkur mjög mikilvægt að halda öllu hreinu hjá okkur.  Í einu og öllu förum við eftir hreinlætisplani sem er í öryggisáætlun okkar og tilmælum Landlæknis er varðar hreinlæti.

Þar af leiðandi höfum við gripið til þessa ráðstafanna vegna Covid-19 og annarra sambærilegra smitsjúkdóma:

- Áður en sest er upp í faratæki okkar þurfa allir að sótthreinsa á sér hendurnar. Einnig áður en komið er í starfsstöðvar okkar við Langjökul til að klæða sig í viðeigandi fatnað.
- Viðskiptavinir fá allir hrein buff (höfuðklúta) til þess að fyrirbyggja snertingu við hjálma.
- Við reynum eftir bestu getu að tryggja að það sé 2 metrar á milli viðskiptavina. Við biðjum einnig viðskiptavini okkar að virða 2 metra regluna.

Allir snertifletir eru þrifnir nokkrum sinnum á dag og einnig eru gallarnir og hjálmarnir spreyjaðir með hreinsiefni eftir notkun með efni sem heitir Virkon. Það er sótthreinsandi efni og drepur alla sýkla sem það kemst í snertingu við. Buffin og hanskarnir eru svo þrifin í lok dag og einungis notuð einu sinni á dag til að koma í veg fyrir smit.

Gestir/viðskiptavinir mega ekki koma í skála hjá okkur né skipulagðar ferðir ef þeir eru í sóttkví eða heimkomusmitgát. Eru í einangrun (einnig meðan beðið er niðurstöðu sýnatöku). Hafa verið í einangrun vegna COVID-19 smits og ekki eru liðnir 14 dagar frá útskrift. Eru með einkenni (Kvef, hósta, hita, höfuðverk, beinverki þreytu, kviðverki, niðurgang o.fl)

We at Mountaineers of Iceland are very concerned about the safety and health of our employees and our customers. It is very important for us to keep everything clean. All in all, we follow a hygiene plan that is in our safety plan and the recommendation of the Medical Director of Health regarding hygiene.
As a result, we have taken these measures for Covid-19 and other comparable infectious diseases:

- Before settling into our vehicles, everyone needs to disinfect their hands. Also before coming to our local offices at Langjökull to dress in appropriate clothing.
- Customers are all given a clean buff (headscarf) to prevent helmet contact.
- We try our best to ensure that it is 2 meters between customers. We also ask our clients to respect the 2-meter rule.

All contact surfaces are cleaned several times a day and also the overalls and helmets are sprayed with detergent after use with a substance called Virkon. It is an antiseptic and kills any germs it comes into contact with. The scarves and gloves are then cleaned at the end of the day and used only once a day to prevent infection.

Visitors are not allowed in our mountain huts or on our organized tours if they are in quarantine or taking special precautions after border screening. Are in isolation (also while waiting for results). Have undergone quarantine for COVID-19 with less than 14 days from discharge. Have flue like symptoms (colds, cough, fever, head ace, bone ace, fatigue, abdominal pain, diarrhea etc).
