What to pack for Norway?!

DSC02840

^ Do you see how cold I am? That’s because it was winter in New York and I had packed jackets I wear here in Brisbane during “”winter””. That was dumb. Please help me 🙂

Hi guys & gals!

It is currently 30+ degrees here in Brisbane, I have had the air con on for the past 24 hours and cannot stop drinking icy cold water and wondering why I live where I live …when I am not really one for the heat!

I am all for gorgeous beach days and posts in the sun and summer dresses and cool cocktails, but I am way happier in the cool air at the change of season, enjoying cups of tea and being able to wear boots and scarfs….

Which brings me to my next point 🙂 !

I need some help from all of you lovely travellers / Northern Hemisphere locals in preparing for our trip next year. It is still ages down the track but with budgets and preparing for the trip, I would rather not leave it until the last minute to start purchasing what I need…

We are leaving end of September and will be gone through til the end of October next year. We are heading to London – Paris – Copenhagen – the Faroe Islands – Norway and Scotland…so far on my list I have…

  • Waterproof hiking shoes
  • Waterproof / all weather jacket
  • Thermal tops
  • Fleece lined leggings
  • Other shoes
  • Beanie
  • Scarf
  • Gloves
  • Trail socks

I would love to hear about any brands you like and trust? I really have no baseline to start from!

Happy Sunday x

  1. Hi there!

    I’m living in Norway and if I understand you question right, your trip will be in October and September only? I mean it won’t last into November? If so, you won’t experience any frost, or at least very title of it and then mostly in the night if so. This time of the year it’s quite normal to have strong wind and storms including a lot of rain. But it can also be completely calm and sunny with temperature up to 10-15 degrees. What to wear depends more on how you plan to travel around. Bus, train, rental car, hitch hiking? In short I would say, expect it to be windy, cold but not frost and a lot of rain.

    1. Hello!
      Thank you so much for your thoughtful reply, I really appreciate it! No we won’t be there until November, I guess I just need to be more prepared in case of any increment weather rather than snow. So am on he hunt for great jacket and shoes 🙂 I am so excited to visit Norway, it looks absolutely amazing!! 🙂 Our travel plans are train, a ship up the coast for a week and a rental car for a bit as well :). Thank you for your wonderful help!

      1. Oh yes, the heat! Hope it’s a bit better in Sydney although I imagine it’s probably going to be just as hot! I was there in January and I think I almost got a heat stroke…haha
