#What should I wear? Stun Iceland with your hot outfits this Spring

Written by Angélica Pacheco

Let’s take a trip in one of the most remote lands this Spring together, to Iceland! Iceland is a beautiful country with beautiful surreal scenery and never-ending adventures. With crazy adventures such as glacier hiking, boat touring, swimming, and horse riding, we must always include the country’s climate.

Since Iceland lies in the North Atlantic, just South of the Artic Circle, it’s polar and temperate, with refreshing summers and mild winters. You might be wondering how in the world can anybody dress fashionably with all the activities and with such climate? 


During the day, it’s important to keep yourself warm and comfortable for your daily activities, with a lightweight coat and leggings that help keep the warm in and the cold out while being lightweight. Add a beanie and scarf for extra warmth and some waterproof hiking shoes to keep you active.

To seal it all in, a warm waterproof jacket for the water related activities and the swift change of climate to keep you dry all day long.

Spring in Iceland is full of muddy trails and new growth. People often dress in winter clothes during spring since the windy and snowy weather conditions often appear.

During the night, for dinner you should glam up your look while staying warm and comfortable.

For a relaxed night, going around the city, visiting restaurants and bars, with a cold climate, feels like there’s no options, however, the textiles used and layers will be crucial for the outfit. l

A wool maxi dress with an interest print will be a good choice, paired with warming tights and black Chelsea boots and topped with a fashionable quilted faux fur jacket will elevate your going out look.

For the spare clothes in your adventures in Iceland, there is one thing that is a clothing piece that is a must to have for all Icelandic visitors.

The Icelandic lopapeysa “sweater made from unspun yarn”, also known as the Icelandic sweater, is an iconic wool jumper made from native Icelandic sheep wool, making it ideal for Iceland’s harsh weather conditions. Mix that with HEATTECH Warm-Lined Pants, Socks and Short Waterproof Boots to make this ideal for going outdoors and staying indoors as well.

Before you go!

You must bring your swimsuit! Preferably one piece. You must think it’s crazy to bring swimsuit in a country that’s near the pole but there is a lot of lagoons around Iceland that is naturally heated caused by geothermics, meaning, it’s possible to enjoy some hot waters even in the coldest and one of the most remote country thanks to it’s active volcanos. That’s the reason why Iceland is called the Land of Fire and Ice!
