Known as the Land of Fire and Ice, Iceland boasts contrasting landscapes of snow-capped mountains and effervescing hot springs. The beauty of Iceland’s terrains can be enjoyed during our activity holidays, which give you the opportunity to experience marine safaris, horse riding and cycling in the most stunning areas.

When deciding what to pack, take into account that no matter what time of year you visit, temperatures will vary. Note what activities are included in your itinerary as you will want to be prepared for any optional tours and excursions. The winter months can be extremely cold so do pack accordingly and follow our Iceland adventure holiday packing tips. Thermal underwear, jumpers, thick socks, gloves, hats and warm trousers are just some of the items that should make it into your suitcase.

Another of our Iceland Adventure Holiday Packing Tips is to dress in layers. Layers are essential as they create pockets of warm air, and with a base layer made from materials which repel perspiration, you will avoid clothes becoming damp and making you cold. Consider taking a neck warmer, rather than a scarf, as scarves may sometimes become an obstruction during more strenuous activities such as skiing. Pack two types of gloves: thinner ones for times that require precision, such as when you are taking photographs, and an insulated pair that are both wind and water resistant. Skiing gloves will be ideal as they are specifically designed for snowy conditions.

Iceland Adventure Breaks Must-Haves!

The adventure breaks in Iceland include some interesting tours of Reykjavík so do take comfortable walking shoes or boots so you can fully enjoy the history and culture of this historic city.

Although most of the equipment needed for excursions will be provided, or available for hire, you may want to think about what clothing is appropriate for certain activities. If you wish to explore Iceland’s bicycle trails, take tight fitting trousers with elasticated seams at the ankle. Not only is this style of trouser safer for bike rides, but they also serve to keep you warm.

It is not all thermals and fleeces in Iceland, and if you decide to take in the glorious nightlife of Reykjavík you will want to look your best, so pack a few items of smart evening wear.

A very important item to pack is a camera, as you will want to capture the idyllic setting, stunning vistas and beautiful wildlife of Iceland. One of our most essential Iceland Adventure Holiday Packing Tips is to invest in a protective, waterproof case for your camera. We also recommend taking plenty of spare batteries and a clear memory card.
