What I wore in Iceland
With a name like Iceland, you’d expect a bit of cool weather on a trip there.
We went in October, which is considered the off-season. The temperature usually ranges around 2 and 7 degrees Celsius. It’s cool, verging on cold, especially in the evenings.
With that in mind, and also knowing we were going to be doing quite a bit of driving around the country to see the sights, we packed for warmth and comfort in mind. I packed sweaters, layers, a nice heavy coat, comfortable boots, and a bunch of toques.
I love Roots sweatshirts. I know they’re kind of bougie for a sweatshirt, but I always know what I’m going to get with them. I managed to get both of these on sale
Iceland is also known to rain a bit, so I brought my rain boots as well. And the sunset seems to last for hours, so it’s always nice to have a pair of sunglasses. You’ve got to love a 3pm golden hour!
For a country that’s known for being cold, you probably wouldn’t expect needing a bathing suit, but you do! Iceland has many incredible hot springs thanks to being on top of volcanoes and such. We couldn’t leave Iceland without a trip to the Blue Lagoon. I got this bathing suit last year for my Mexico trip and I love it!
We had pretty fantastic weather for our trip, and we were very comfortable in what we had brought. We were gone for 5 days, and I would have love to have been able to pack everything in a carry-on but that was just not the case.
