Ice Runner Expedition: Three-Person Sled House

The Ice Runner Expedition is the BEST VALUE in a SPACIOUS, INSULATED three-person shelter!

Compare size, features, and price and you will AGREE that the Ice Runner Expedition combines UNMATCHED design and enclosed space with the LOWEST cost.

The Ice Runner Expedition is built on a tough, low-profile sled. The collapsed Expedition is ONLY 81" long x 46" wide x 12" high. This compact package weighs ONLY 69-pounds – that’s 50% LESS than many competitive models! One person can easily pull this large house without a snow machine.

But the Ice Runner Expedition is not thin, noisy nylon. The Expedition (like ALL Ice Runner shelters) is constructed with quality, warm 600 Denier FULLY INSULATED quilted material. You stay warm and enjoy added stability out on the cold, windy ice.

The Ice Runner Expedition opens fast with a set of three, heavy-duty aluminum poles. The shelter poles are engineered for extra rigidity and fast extension. Large push buttons allow one person to put up or take down the house in two minutes. The opened Expedition gives you UNMATCHED 74-inches of headroom in a three-person house.

The extra-long poles provide the MAXIMUM fishable area. The Ice Runner Expedition opens to an interior “floor space” that is 75" wide x 58" deep. That is 30.2 square feet of UNOBSTRUCTED ice! (The Expedition has nearly DOUBLE the fishable space of two-person houses, including our Ice Runner Explorer.) This HUGE ice area remains unobstructed with the EXCLUSIVE Ice Runner back door entry. You enter and exit from the REAR of the shelter via a huge zippered door and the dry sled. NEVER step on the wet, slippery ice and climb over your holes, rods or locator again.

The Ice Runner Expedition is built for the way you and your family fish. Two gear pockets are sewn into the side walls. There are FOUR huge, vertical windows – plus a SKY LIGHT – for maximum interior light and viewing tip-ups spread around the shelter. Or seal the windows tight to black-out the interior for sight fishing or spearing. Flaps are attached to the outside apron of the house to seal in the heat and eliminate drafts. There are also exterior anchor points if you need to stake out the house on glare ice. The shell has side vents and reflective patches on all four sides. Ice Runner even includes a clear exterior envelope for your ID license info – if required in your state. We have included EVERY feature you asked for in a family-size, Guide-quality COMPLETE ice fishing sled shelter!

Ice Runner has eliminated the fixed, heavy built-in seats. No seats are included because everyone fishes differently – and has different requirements from day to day. Add the folding chairs, bench or buckets that match your style. Store two or three seats depending on the day. Enjoy the added space, versatility and ease of entry not possible with seats that are bolted to the sled.

The Ice Runner Expedition is designed to be the PERFECT sled ice shelter for two or three anglers. It is warm and roomy. There is space for four or more holes, plus tackle, a heater and locators. But the Expedition is not too large, too heavy, or too complicated for one angler. The light, low profile sled pulls easy and assembles quickly by one person. Compact and weighing less than 70-pounds, the Expedition fits easily in your truck bed. The Ice Runner Expedition has plenty room for three people – and is pure LUXURY for two hard-core anglers!

On top of ALL these standard features that make fishing easier and more comfortable, Ice Runner ensures the Expedition is your BEST VALUE by including a FREE sled cover with every house. That’s a $50.00 FREE bonus! The middle zipper on the sled cover provides fast access to all your gear without removing the cover. The roomy sled will store your auger, heater and fishing gear with room to spare.

Ice Runner stands behind their loyal customers with FREE replacement windows for the life of your shelter. All the windows are replaceable (Velcro all the way around) and come with a lifetime warranty. Just send any cracked windows back to us for free replacement!

The Ice Runner Expedition requires only minor assembly of the folding poles. (See the assembly instructions below.) But – if you prefer or for gifts - let us assemble your house for you! Ice Runner will fully assemble your fishing shelter, so you only need to unwrap it and go fishing! (Optional additional $50 assembly fee.)

Ice Runner gives you the option to add a tow hitch for pulling your Expedition with your ATV or snowmobile. For added strength and protection when towing a loaded sled, Hyfax runner kits are also available for the Expedition.

Compare size, features, and price and you will AGREE that the Ice Runner Expedition combines UNMATCHED design and enclosed space with the LOWEST cost. That is why the Ice Runner Expedition is the BEST VALUE in a SPACIOUS, INSULATED three-person ice fishing shelter! Order YOURS today!

    Expedition Exceeding Expectations

    Posted by Phil on Sep 7th 2022

    Got this to replace a older non-insulated Clam. Set up was actually pretty easy, the overall size of the shelter is great, much more fishable space, and the standing room is great! Set up was easy, only took about 45 minutes from start to finish. The lighting from all the oversized windows is great. My only downside is I wished it came with some aluminum pole lubricant. Not that it's hard to find, but it would have been the icing on the cake! All in all, I would absolutely buy this again and would recommend!

    Ice house expedition

    Posted by Austin on Mar 15th 2021

    Great hut! was easy to assemble and it pulls really nice by hand, easy fast set up in under 2 minutes as advertised ( even with no help). Love the back door entry as it makes going in and out easy. Only con with mine was the knobs on the 3 bars on 1 side are barely lined up and finnicy to get them to pop out all the way when setting up. Knobs on the other side pop out no problem.

    Thank You!

    I am extremely happy with my purchase of the Ice Runner Expedition. It is everything I had hoped it would be. I am 71 years young, and decided it was time that I ice fish in comfort. This unit will help me accomplish that goal.  To begin, the unit was assembled and shipped to my house in about a week.  Awesome turnaround time. I added what I think is a very reasonable rate to have the unit assembled prior to shipping. I am very glad I did. Because the unit is new, and I am new to the unit, it took a few minutes to set the unit up in my garage. I was however, able to accomplish this by myself.  Keep in mind...71 years young. The unit is huge, yet I am able to lift it up to the tailgate of my truck and slide it in.  I like being able to sit on the sled floor, off the ice, and with whatever chair is to my liking.  Multiple window openings allow for natural light, and ventilation. One minor suggestion. I would like to recommend that the manufacturer install a grommet hole in each of the corners of the skirt to allow the option of pinning the skirt and ice house in place. I am going to do so myself. I believe the Ice Runner Expedition will be all I wanted in a portable ice house.

    Excellent portable shack with tons of room. Lightweight, easy to load and pull by yourself, even when loaded with gear. Sets up and tears down quickly and easily. Holds heat, makes fishing comfortable! Would recommend to anyone looking for a quality shack that’s affordable!

    Ordered the expedition last Thursday arrived the next day. I live about 6 hours away. Put it together that night. When out the next day. Every thing we needed for fishing fit in the sled. Lots of room in the house and didn’t bank the house and it’s was warm with a buddy heater.Temperature was in the 20’s and wind in the mid teens. The rear door and sun roof is great. Fellow up later with more. For the first time out it was very good.

    I had just about given up on portables until I used one of these (and the smaller Explorer) last winter on Devils Lake, ND. As has been described in previous positive reviews, this house is awesome…all the bases covered for the right way to make a sled-style fish house. I just finished assembling a new one out of the box, and it went together easily compared to other brands. Top-notch, solid product, can’t wait to get it on the ice!

    Big & Easy

    Posted by Jay Hutson on Dec 4th 2019

    I love walleye fishing which means late night action. Fished out of portables for over 30 years and often got frustrated with taking them down in the dark. This by far has the easiest setup and take down process I have used. Very warm house as well, last weekend coats off and no heat needed much of the day in 15 degree weather.

    Very happy with my purchase

    Posted by Terry on Dec 4th 2019

    Great house lots of room easy to load and set up by yourself. The access being in the back is the only way to go.

    Perfect house

    Posted by Brian on Dec 4th 2019

    Use this house for angling and spearing. The many windows make it great for angling and still is dark enough to spear with windows covered. Low profile sled with mid zipper cover carries all equipment and stores easily.Highly recommend this house.
