Arctic Overland Series Part 6

Back in part 5 went high and into the wilderness Norway had to offer.

Part 6 is the final part of the series but fear not.. We are inviting you to ask us all of the questions you may have so we can make a part 7 and answer you directly. Interested in the gear we use? Interested in the van? Interested in us? please ask us those questions you have and we will try our best to include you in part 7

Soooooo… part 6.

We get our last taste of wilderness camping before crossing back over to Sweden, into Denmark, through Germany, Netherlands, Belgium and onto France. Sweden still had an absolute gem of a place to visit and Denmark threw up a few cool places too. Before we we set off south from Norway we bumped into Sion from Australia in his van who is a customer of ours who had called into CVC HQ before he left for a grand European tour of Europe. We had fitted his van out with a bunch of stuff and his CVC ARB awning was going strong and was a must have item for him on his own trip. For us the CVC log burning stove was earning it’s keep once more, keeping us warm in the evening when we were sat outside at high altitude. If you are interested in those check them out right here.

Oh and we also got to go truck shopping in Denmark thanks to our good mate Jason.

As promised we have added the actual GPS locations of the free camp spots we found in part 6 as a thank you for your ongoing support. We will continue to do this through the following five or more following episodes. If you are interested in any of the equipment you see us using in this series please feel free to check out the Cooking & Camping Equipment section on the web shop. As most of you will all ready know the only things that ever end up on there is the equipment we actually use ourselves. That’s how CVC became the trusted brand we are today and not just another van parts web shop with no soul just stocking catalogue parts.

It’s that time of the week again to grab yourself a cold one, sit back and come and join us for the ride with us in part 6 of the CVC Arctic Circle Overland Film Series..

    Hi Jed, really enjoyed watching your videos, looked like a great trip. Not sure where to ask the questions you mention for part 7 but I have a few:

    – Do you have another car as which use on a daily basis when at home? or is the van your daily drive? I have a t5 which is my only vehicle but wondering if this is realistic with a t25

    – Any tips for showers in Denmark/Sweden/Norway/Finland? Did you use the shower off the van for the whole trip????

    – How do you rate having a pop top vs a high roof on a van? I’m currently considering the pros and cons of both

    Hi Jed,

    With regards to Part 7,

    1) do you have a GPX copy of the entire route you undertook?
    2) I think you should let Lou so some work to camera, so we can see these adventures from her perspective…!

    Found the films to be both fascinating and once again, dangerous in terms of searching for that elusive Syncro thats for sale at the right price and right time!


    (PS, when you build your Overlander, can I have first refusal on the Joker 😉 )

      The Joker will always stay with us Matt, the truck is an addition rather than a replacement. The Joker is just to dam nimble to be replaced fully. The Truck will be for long distance travel over a year or so once the house is paid off.

      Glad you liked the series and I will be sure to answer your questions directly in part 7, the Q&A video.

    Hi Jed,

    I’ve been thoroughly absorbed in your Arctic Overland series during my lunch breaks at work over the past week! What a trip! I’ve loved the videos for there sense of adventure, the quality of the filming, the stunning scenery and excellent music choices. I’ve found the videos really inspiring – I have a wife and young son and the video series has motivated me ‘get out there’ on more adventures with the family.

    I have some questions regarding your filming kit, if that’s OK?

    How much filming kit did you take with you on your adventure?
    Do you have any tips for minimising the ‘bulk’ of equipment needed when travelling with limited storage?
    The quality of footage is really excellent – what main camera do you use? Shot in HD or 4K?
    Do you use a Phantom drone?
    There always seems to be sideways slewing movement in your static shots almost like the camera has been set up on a dolly which looks great. Do you have some kind of portable dolly/slider setup?

    Again, thanks for sharing your travels with us. Truly inspiring stuff!
