With its extreme weather, Iceland is not a country where you want to be unprepared. This Iceland packing list shows you what to pack to stay warm and dry and avoid paying high prices to buy extra clothes in Iceland.
We visited Iceland in late September, officially autumn, but it felt distinctly wintery with temperatures from –2ºC (28ºF) at night up to a maximum of around 5ºC (40ºF) during the day.
Iceland’s weather is unpredictable, and at any time of year, you should be prepared for cold weather, rain, and strong winds. Seriously, the wind is intense!
