The right clothing and equipment can make the difference between a good and a bad experience. In the Arctic you should be prepared for any kind of weather at any time of the year. Bring warm and comfortable clothes and shoes. We recommend wearing 100% wool or similar quality clothing next to your skin. Layer your clothing, so that you can easily regulate your temperature by removing or adding a layer. Several thin layers are better than a few thick layers. Outer clothing should be windproof and waterproof.
To help you make your Arctic adventure holiday as comfortable as possible we recommend that you bring the following minimum basic clothing:
- 1 set of warm underwear (longjons and top with full length arms). Preferably wool or woolen terry
- 1 Jumper or shirt
- 1 thick wool sweater or fleece jacket
- 2 pairs of thick wool socks
- 1 pair of thin gloves
- 1 Wind and water proof jacket
- 1 Wind and water proof pants
If wool iritates your skin, a thin syntetic base layer underneath the wool thermal layer will probably help.
The Arctic outdoors is facinating and full of adventure opportunities. In order to be best prepared to enjoy the Arctic environment we recommend that you bring the additional clothing and equipment (in addition to the general clothing listed above):
