Dear foreign guests. The weather is bad in Iceland these January days so there are certain clothes that you need to avoid taking with you. Here are some examples:
1 Jeans. No, please. Jeans are cold and don’t dry so easily. It’s much better to bring hiking pants. They are convenient and dry easily.
2 High heals or sneakers. No, please. It’s winter. You need winter boots.
3 T-shirts. No. Sorry. Unless you are going to stay indoors all the time. And you need layers if you go outside.
4 Light jacket. No, please bring parka and or perhaps a thick jacket. Outdoor clothing works well and of course you could buy high quality outdoor 66North, IceWear, Cintamani or ZoOn in Iceland if you like.
5 Umbrella. No please. It rains sideways in Iceland. You’ll only destroy your umbrella. Please bring solid rain gear.
