Here you get some inspiration for what to pack for a visit to the Nordic countries.
No matter the season, you should always bring a variety of sensible layers to add or remove according to the temperature. Don’t forget to pack at least one warm jumper or fleece, a waterproof jacket and comfortable walking shoes or boots, preferably with good grip for all sorts of terrain. An umbrella can also come in handy. It could also be a good idea to bring binoculars.
You can lighten up your layers, but keep in mind that summer nights can still be chilly, especially in the mountains or on the deck of a cruise ship. A good idea could here be to bring a pair of light gloves, hat and scarf. Sun cream and sunglasses are also recommended, and a sleep mask may help you to sleep if you are visiting the Nordic countries, where they have the natural phenomena as the Midnight Sun.
Bring some warmer layers (preferably woollen) along with an insulated coat, scarf, gloves, hat and warm shoes or insulated boots with at least one pair of thick woollen socks. If your tour includes activities like dogsledding or snowmobiling you may also wish to bring glove liners, a balaclava and maybe even hand/foot warmer heat packs.
It is recommended bringing a rucksack or small backpack for your daily essentials like camera, wallet, water bottle and extra clothing layers. It can be useful for hiking excursions or picnics.
