Current weather

I am leaving for Iceland on Thursday. I checked the weather but can any one tell me what type of clothes to bring? Long sleeve or short sleeve during the day? What do people wear out a night? Do I need a coat? Thanks

1. Re: Current weather

I've just returned. Weather very changeable so I suggest plenty of layers including a waterproof jacket and a polar fleece top and whatever T-shirt, long or short-sleeve, underneath. Sometimes the sun shines, the wind drops and you can walk about in a t-shirt but usually you need more. I wore breathable, quick-drying trousers but needed a layer underneath at times in the North when temperature dropped to 5 degrees at times! I did bring some smarter clothes for evening but never wore them, just wore jeans and t-shirt in hotels. May be different in the capital but certainly in country hotels around the island it was very relaxed!

2. Re: Current weather

We are off next Monday and I will be packing lots of layers. Having been before there always seems to be a wind which cools things down. You will certainly need a coat and long sleeves, Most of the time we wore long quick drying trousers and fleeces. Temps could be in the 50 - 60F range.

The weather is very changable so be prepared for anything!
