Ultimate Packing List for Iceland

Ultimate Packing List for Summer Travel in Iceland

 We visited Iceland for two weeks in August (summer season). We spent the first week backpacking the Laugavegur trek and hiking in the Thorsmork area.  The second week, we rented a car and drove around the island.  The packing list below was what we had for the two weeks in terms of clothing and camping gear. We packed food for the first week as we didn’t have access to any shops. Once we had a car in the second week, we were able to buy fresh food and vegetables. We spent 13 of the 15 days camping so the camping gear listed below was used extensively. We knew that Iceland weather is notoriously unpredictable, and you really should assume that it will rain every day.  For that reason, keeping your gear and clothes dry will be a challenge, especially if you are camping and don’t have access to washers/dryers.  Below is our packing list.
