Ahh, Iceland! I don’t think I know someone who isn’t going to Iceland this year (ha!), so having been there before I thought I would share a packing list for a Winter trip to Iceland. Although Spring is officially here in California, it is still very cold and wet in Iceland. The temperatures average just above freezing, but my main concern for this packing list is moisture and wind. This packing list is very similar to my packing list for Summer in Iceland, with the exception that the layers are much warmer.
We spent last Summer driving around Iceland’s Ring Road, and most of our activities were outdoors. I think a Winter trip would warrant some glacier exploration, hunting for the Northern Lights, and more time at the Blue Lagoon.
Aviation Eskimo Parka
A warm and waterproof jacket will be essential during the Winter in Iceland. I wore this one during the Summer and was too warm, especially when layered. I think it’s safe to assume that it should be perfect for Winter. I have a size small and it’s a little snug when I wear it with a sweater.
Cecile Waterproof Boot
I basically lived in these boots during my trip to Iceland. Not only are they waterproof, they are lined as well so your feet stay nice and cozy. We did quite a bit of hiking in them and they performed well. I wore my other shoes while in the city and for travel.
See the Outfits:
Day 1 Travel to Iceland.
Day 2 Visit The Blue Lagoon.
Day 3 Go on an adventure, wear all the things.
Day 4 Explore downtown Reykjavik.
Day 5 See the Golden Circle.
Day 6 Visit the Blue Lagoon again. It’s worth a second trip.
Day 7 More adventures!
Day 8 Light exploring.
Day 9 More city time!
Day 10 Travel home. Boo.

Have you been Iceland in the Winter? What did you pack for your trip?
It’s really artistic, the photos are really beautiful and I love your recommandations for the clothes. Very happy to discover your blog linked to my passion of travels…Thank you.
I love the winter boots you posted but the link is not working… can you help a girl out?
Ahh, here this one should work. They are the Ugg Cecile waterproof boots.
Your posts are so helpful on what to pack! I don’t suppose you have a good recco on an appropriate street shoe? Eying the Sorel Chelsea in black….
This is exactly what I needed for our Feb trip. You, a total internet stranger, have saved my life! Thank you for making packing a breeze.
Great outfit selections! All the clothing looks so trendy but warm for winter in Iceland. I love to go there someday to see the northern lights that I heard so much about.
These looks are so easy and chic! Definitely going to save this post. Iceland is on the top of me and my husband’s bucket list.

Love the minimalism in your looks lady! They are so chic and easy to pack! That beige poncho is giving me life!!
