Spitsbergen and North Cape


I am going on the above cruise which sails from London Tilbury on 17 July 2011.

Can anybody tell me what sort of clothing I will need to take - that is to say, summer or winter? Will I need to pack thermals for the trips and will I need walking boots or just ordinary flat shoes?

Thank you in advance for your advice.

Salisbury, United...

I am going to Spitsbergen in August and I am planning on taking thermals and padded ski trousers. It can get pretty chilly outside on board ship. If you are making landings from zodiacs it is suggested you take waterproofs and waterproof boots.

Hope that helps.

Bring full English winter clothing, boots, scarf, gloves, cap.

I think Spitsbergen will have winter weather (by English standards), as Brainspins points out
