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.

Contrasting
Of all the words in the English dictionary, this one sums-up the roads between the UK and Tallinn, Estonia the best. Our route from Millbrook, Bedfordshire to the Eurotunnel took in the delights of the M25 but flashbacks of commuter ring-road hell were soon quashed thanks to Belgium’s empty roads.
