CLOTHING

BOOTS

  • Outdoor clothing suitable for a full day out in variable weather. Note that the weather in Iceland is often erratic, and that spring or summer is no guarantee for warm and/or dry weather. Cotton is NOT a recommended fabric for outdoor activities in Iceland. We suggest:

    • Wool or synthetic base layer​.

    • Hiking pants (soft shell recommended).

    • Fleece sweater.

    • Breathable wind and waterproof jacket and pants (e.g. Gore-Tex).

    • An extra insulating jacket, e.g. down or synthetic.

    • A warm hat and a baseball cap or a sun hat.

    • Two pairs of gloves: one thick, one thin.

  • Hiking boots suitable to wear with crampons. The hiking boots should be high enough to provide ankle support. Waterproof boots are highly recommended. Tennis shoes, running shoes, street shoes, high heels, trail walking shoes, and similar are not suitable for this hike and not compatible with crampons and will NOT be accepted for this hike. 

  • Sunglasses and sunscreen.

  • A backpack. A 25-40L backpack with a hip belt is recommended. Attachment straps to secure the crampons to the outside of the pack is preferred by many, as well as ice axe attachments. 

  • Water bottles, 2L capacity minimum.

  • Lunch and snacks for each day.

  • Hiking poles are optional, but favored by many.

  • Camera.
