What to expect

During midwinter, all weather can be expected. Drivers also need to keep in mind that the sun is low in the sky so driving conditions can be challenging and change swiftly. Warm and waterproof outerwear is essential. Summer equinox is on the 20th of March.

What to pack? 

  • Insulated jacket
  • Warm layers (wool sweater, down/Primaloft jacket, warm socks etc.)
  • Ice cleats/ice grips/anti-slip soles (even if you are only staying in town)
  • Fleece jacket/lightweight wool sweater
  • Rainproof/windproof jacket and pants
  • Sturdy walking shoes with a good tread/grip
  • Sunglasses (during spring/summer it’s bright 24/7 and during winter the sun rises low and reflects from the snow, if there is any).
  • Gloves
  • Scarves
  • Hat (toque/beanie)
  • Thermal underwear (specifically for highland travel/activities)
  • Waterproof hiking boots (specifically for highland travel/activities)
