Frequently asked questions

What equipment should I pack for an adventure holiday in Iceland?

As a general rule, you will need warm, water- and windproof clothing and sturdy hiking boots with ankle support for most activities in Iceland. Must-haves include warm headgear that protects the ears, waterproof gloves, windproof overpants and warm wool socks. If you don't have these items already, you can of course buy them either at the airport on arrival or at the many winter clothes stores in the Reykjavik city centre.

In the "What to Bring" section of each package description, all additional specifications are listed, although specialized equipment is usually provided for you.

Whether it's ice caving, glacier hiking, dog sledding, snowmobiling or snorkeling and so much more, there's no shortage of adventurous activities to engage in.
