What kind of clothes should I wear in Lapland?

In the summer the most important thing to wear is good boots. A pair of good hiking boots does well. If you are planning to go picking berries or mushroom or fishing it is always a good idea to bring a pair of rubber boots, which can be rented from the hotel. In the summer you will also need something light to wear during the day and something warm like a pullover for the evenings. It is also a good idea bring a waterproof jacket and a hat to protect you from the sun and insects.

In the winter the most important things is to dress up in layers. First of all you need good thermal long underwear, then another layer of something warm like wool or fleece. On the top you will need good garment, which should preferably be water and wind proof. The most important thing to remember is that you should be totally covered from head to toes. For example if you do not wear a hat with the rest of your clothes being the best possible winter gear, you will feel cold.

It is also very important to remember to avoid getting wet both on inside and outside. This is especially important with your socks. Always use clean socks, preferably made from material other than cotton, which tends to get cold when wet. You can also rent winter outwear from the hotel.
