Icelandic Ice Cream Truck Visits Every Farm

Ice cream delivery company Ísbílaútgerdin ehf. has since 1994 delivered ice cream to Iceland’s most rural areas. The company now operates six ice cream trucks which drive over 130,000 kilometers in one summer, stopping at every farm along the way.

“We employ seven people full time over the summer,” managing director of Ísbílaútgerdin Ásgeir Baldursson told 24 Stundir. To cover most parts of the country, the ice cream truck drivers are assigned with 60 different day-tours, each of which is driven every other week.

They also go on longer tours, which take up to one week. “Then they drive around the West Fjords or some other part of the country. The drive up to every farm and stop in the center of every village,” Baldursson said.

This is the fourth summer that Ísbílaútgerdin delivers ice cream to every part of Iceland except for the capital region. Despite rising fuel prices, Baldursson said his company is constantly increasing its annual profits.
