DRESS WARM STAY HAPPY
The weather in Iceland is very unpredictable so we recommend bringing warm, and more importantly, waterproof clothes for the ride!
Icelanders dress in layers to keep warm!
Layer 1 – Woollen shirt, woollen long johns/leggings/thermals
Layer 2 – Fleece/down/wool jacket/sweater, soft (fleece) pants
Layer 3 – Water- and windproof jacket and trousers

Icelandic food is typical European style. We recommend to drink water and it is safe and environmentally friendly to fill your water bottles with tap water unless otherwise marked. We recommend that you ask your guide to confirm the quality of the water.
For electrical devices, you need a European adapter. You can buy it at the airport or in local shops. Don’t forget your phone charger.
Internet Wi-Fi is widely accessible in Iceland and readily available at your hotels. There are some areas in the highlands with low phone reception but in general 3g and 4g are available throughout.
