I am planning a 3 weeks journey to Iceland in July and I am involved about what sort of garments I have to carry with me. I haven’t got a inflexible schedule, so this will range, however proper now I am excited about hitchhiking on the Hringvegur, taking day journeys for easy mountaineering throughout the stops.
In keeping with the wiki web page the typical July temperature within the southern a part of the island is 10–13 °C which is sort of chilly for my likings. Clearly temperature is not the one issue and it is necessary, for instance, contemplating the imply precipitation days which must be round 10 days in July. And what about winds?
One other nasty downside is that often winter garments are heavier and larger than a pair of flip flop and a washing go well with which is annoying if you attempt to pack flippantly.
I additionally are inclined to over-cover myself when it is chilly, which isn’t superb in the case of hike as a result of I often sweat loads even when out it is approach beneath zero.
So, from hat to footwear what would I have to survive the Icelandic climate in July and have the ability to face small hikings with out travelling with an excessive amount of stuff?
