Asking yourself ‘do I need thermals for Iceland?’ Of course you do! Whether visiting Iceland in the summer or winter thermals in Iceland are an essential clothing item on your list of clothes to wear in Iceland as well as what to pack for your trip to Iceland.
When thinking about clothes to take to Iceland thermals are just as important. Thermals allow you to stay warm without having to wear everything you packed in your suitcase. You can certainly use thermals as a way to wear layers and then take of clothing layer as and when you feel warmer. Frankly, when I wore thermal in Iceland I was able to wear my most of my normal clothes in Iceland like jumper dresses and wool coat without feeling called. I would highly recommend you also bring suitable jackets for Iceland as well as warm gloves. More so in the winter or if exploring the North of Iceland which tends to be a lot colder than the South of Iceland. Especially important travel essentials for winter too.

Be sure to also invest in a good pair of thermal socks in addition to packing the best shoes for Icelandic weather. No Iceland winter packing list should exclude thermals, you will very likely be ruining your trip as no one can have fun while being extremely cold.
