What To Wear For Iceland Glacier Walk or Hike
We visited in the summer but as you may know that Icelandic weather can change without warning, so pack accordingly. Reykjavik, although cold, gave us summer midnight sun and the south of Iceland had mysterious low hanging clouds, rain, hale and all sorts. You don’t have to pack everything under the sun, but picking clothes you can layer up as well as items suitable for all weather as well is my advice.
I came layered up in thermals, a jumper dress, and my trusted lightweight Mountain Equipment jacket. I bought this jacket a long time ago and it has seen me through hikes inSnowdonia, Norway, and a few other places. It’s waterproof, keeps body heat well and can handle pretty much all the mountain can throw at it without being bulky or weighty and can fold into a nice little ball. So if you are going to be taking part in any Iceland glacier tours from Reykjavik or embarking on glacier hiking in Iceland, guided or self-guided, I would highly recommend you check the weather in Iceland before leaving and pack accordingly. Below is also a few items you might want to pack on your trip. If heading to Iceland in the winter, make sure you pack for the Iceland winter which can be harsh.
