AA testworld 2

The Test World proving ground 300km north of the Arctic Circle in Lapland had never had a caravan or motorhome on its test tracks before we rolled in 2,700 miles after starting our Arctic Adventure from its sister site, the Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedfordshire.

The Arctic Circle might not be the obvious choice for a caravanning holiday but as we pulled into Ranua Zoo Camping - some 50-miles south of the Arctic ‘border’ and heavily laden with snow - it proved that a caravan doesn’t mind where you take it as long as it’s helping you chase your dreams.

Before the Bailey of Bristol ‘Arctic Adventure’, my ice road experience was limited to re-runs of Ice Road Truckers on the TV but our route to Ivalo, Finland gave us the opportunity to take to the ice with a caravan in tow.
