Expeditions provide a good reason to become as disconnected as you like.
The Mudrut team are highly skilled off road veterans with many years of experience taking guided tours in to the harshest of wilderness. Our 2016 Nordkapp adventure will be our 5th expedition to the Arctic Circle.

Let's go explore!
The European Arctic is closer to home than you might think! So why not consider Northern Europe? We can take you in search of those mystical Northern Lights.
There are few people who do not have witnessing the Aurora Borealis on their life’s wish list. Throw in winter wonderland landscapes straight from a postcard and the chance to visit the Ice Hotel or a snowmobile trip across the tundra and it is easy to see how attractive Scandinavia is as a winter overland destination.
Spend the evenings beside the warmth of the log-burning stove inside our Tipis.
After an exhilarating day following ice and snow covered trails, what could be better! Once you are in the warmth, perhaps the only thing which could tempt you outside again is to view the ethereal Northern Lights swirling against the back drop of a star-filled sky, with silhouettes of pine trees dotted around. After witnessing this spectacular sight, you will be glad to return to the fire, wrap up in reindeer skins and get some rest, ready for another adrenaline-fueled day out in the wilderness again!
Nordkapp – the most northerly point you can drive to in Europe. Further north than Iceland, less than 2,000km from the North Pole.
“I came across Mudrut while attempting to satisfy my penchant for camping in more unusual places, a love of anything 4x4 and a lifelong ambition to see the Northern Lights; I could not have chosen better. An epic journey across the frozen Scandinavian landscape found us at our final destination of Nordkapp - at 70.9781° N, 25.9747° E there was nowhere left to go! Having set our camp for the night in temperatures of 20 below it was now down to Mother Nature to provide and provide she did in abundance. The next four hours of dancing lights in colours I have only dreamt of could only be described as breath-taking. Mudrut gave me a true experience of a lifetime and anyone wishing to try that something 'a little different' would be well rewarded with memories that will never fade, the NLC2013 will be with me forever.”
“Our Mudrut trips have been so enjoyable; in 2012 to the frozen north of Norway, and in 2014 driving into the beautiful Pyrenees. These trips have left us with wonderful memories and photographs, but also with friends and a desire to travel lots more…… Can't recommend Mudrut experiences enough”

“From our first contact with Ian we knew we were in safe hands. Ian took account of both us and our vehicle, taking time to find out how much (or, in our case, how little) modification we had done to it and what we wanted out of the weekend. And what a weekend it was - negotiating water, mud, ascents, descents, country lanes and riding across open countryside. Plus we had a fabulous campfire, great food, great company and lots of laughter. Nothing was rushed yet we seemed to do loads and plenty of options were given so we could decide what we wanted to do. Ian has been generous in sharing information and experiences and he clearly wants everyone to have as much fun with their vehicle as he obviously does with his. We will be back!"

"Just to again thank you for a great 3 day trip. Both Brian and I really enjoyed ourselves and were challenged by some of the routes you picked out for us. We look forward to seeing some of the pics/DVD clips you took - I know they will be great reminders of a great off road experience. I/we hope to return for another adventure some time. Keep in touch with your itineraries!"

"Our trip to the Pyrenees with Mudrut was amazing. The scenery was great with fantastic off road driving, sights and places to visit. It was organised well with a flexible itinerary that suited all levels of driving ability. The routes chosen took us to some beautiful places with wonderful views and well equipped campsites along the way.
All the regions of the Pyrénées are stunning but being able to experience them, with knowledgeable guides that knew all the best places to go, made it extra special. We experienced some truly dramatic and diverse areas, from high mountain passes, dense forests to winding mountain trails and passed through the most rural of villages; in places it is hard to believe you are still in Europe. For anyone who has a passion for the great outdoors I can highly recommend this trip."
