What to wear in Iceland

Iceland is a unique country with temperature and a range of weather conditions. Because of this, it is best to be prepared for all types of situations. Here are a few tips below to help with packing for D.I.C.E. Reykjavík: 

  • If you're planning on enjoying any of the tourist sites, day trips, or even strolls around the city, be prepared for cold, snowy weathers. We suggest wearing layers if possible, including but not limited waterproof warm coats, beanies, gloves, water resistant shoes, and warm socks. 
  • We highly suggest wearing sunscreen on your face when going out as well as having a pair of sunglasses handy. Although the weather conditions in September may be colder, reflective snow and sun can still be relevant weather conditions you may see. 
  • We also encourage bringing a poncho on any outdoor activities outside of the main city. They will come in handy when hiking near waterfalls as well as sudden bursts of rainfall.
  • Don't forget your swimwear including towels and flip flops! Iceland is known for its hot springs and swimming pools all over.
