Pack Warm Stay Happy

CLIMATE

If you don’t like the weather, just wait five minutes. This little pun is often told at the expense of the Icelandic weather. Thanks to the Gulf Stream, Iceland enjoys a cool, temperate maritime climate; refreshing summers and fairly mild winters.

The weather is also affected by the East Greenland polar current curving south-eastwards round the north and east coasts. As a result, sudden weather changes are common, and travellers should prepare accordingly.

CLOTHING

When travelling in Iceland you should bring along lightweight woollens, a sweater or cardigan, a rainproof (weatherproof) coat, and sturdy walking shoes. Travellers who are camping or heading into the interior will need warm underwear and socks, rubber boots, and a warm sleeping bag.
