Hagglunds BV206 Arctic tourism and Exploration
The BV206 was designed for use by the Swedish Army originally and therefore one of the main criteria in the design was that the vehicle could operate in extreme cold and snow covered regions.
This has made the BV206 the obvious choice for commercial organisations with operations in cold climates as well as being the vehicle of preference for Arctic expeditions.
Hagglunds All Terrain Vehicle are used as transport in Antarctica, Iceland, Canada, North of Russia.
