Gear For Iceland


Iceland is a country where the weather can change in the drop of a hat and it can change several times in a day. One minute it can be sunny and clear and the next minute hailing with strong winds. There are some essentials that you will need to bring with you and probably some gadgets that you would prefer to pack as well. This is the list of my gear for Iceland that I brought on my 8 day trip around the land of fire and ice.

Camera/Video Equipment

Iceland is such a beautiful country that you’ll want to stop every couple of seconds to shoot a photo of an epic landscape or grab some video footage of the giant waterfall. You’ll need your camera of choice and probably extra battery power.

You can wear a camera strap and shoot photos on the go, but these accessories help to turn that cool shot into an amazing one and give you battery power that will last through the desolate landscapes and many miles of open roads.

When you are packing gear for Iceland you could probably leave your laptop at home as there is so much to see and do in the country, but if you are like most of us you’ll want it. If you are travel blogging you’ll need it. If you edit videos and pictures I recommend a MacBook Pro.

You’ll need somewhere to store all your gear and keep it dry from that pesky rain or hail or snow or slush. These lightweight and durable items can make things easier while on your adventure.
