Iceland Packing List for a Trip to Iceland in Spring & Summer

I had the most incredible time in Iceland!  It was definitely the most incredible vacation I’ve ever had.  I still cannot believe I’m engaged.

This is the generalized packing list. I was there for a 5 days.  Some of these items are for specific things I did while I was there, which I will note.  Much like Colorado, Iceland weather can change so I brought versatile pieces.  The temperature was around 53 degrees Fahrenheit there.  We had a little bit of rain but mostly beautiful sunny skies. I won’t be sharing my toiletry list because that’s really specific to each person.


What I’ll be wearing on the plane:



T Shirt


What My Boyfriend will wear on the plane:

What I’m Packing in the Checked Bag:
