Arctic’s Dress code
The right clothing and equipment can make the difference between a good and bad experience. Here in the arctic climate you should be prepared for any kind of weather, regardless time of the year. Bring warm and comfortable clothes and shoes. We recommend wearing 100 % wool or similar quality closest to your body and to layer your clothing, so that you easily can regulate your temperature by removing or adding a layer of clothes. Several thin layers are better than few thick layers. Outer clothing should be wind- and water proof.
