Many of us long to tour Iceland – indeed, with the stunning scenery, amazing natural attractions and fabulous geological wonders here, it’s the perfect destination for a self drive holiday. But where most of us would opt for a comfortable hire car to get out and about in Iceland, retired theatre technician Reiner Huttasch is exploring the country on his 54 year old Buhler tractor!
Expecting to spend around six weeks in the country - travelling at just 20mph and sleeping in a self-built mobile home he tows behind his tractor - Reiner’s trip through Iceland is just one leg of a much longer journey through Germany, Denmark, the UK, Belgium and France.
Asked why he set out on this mind-boggling trip, Reiner’s answer was simple: ‘wild nature!’ The Swiss national told Icelandic reporters that he prefers to spend his holidays in warm jumpers rather than sunning himself by the sea in Spain!
