WHAT CLOTHES AND FOOTWEAR SHOULD I TAKE?
Lapland is above the arctic circle which means you should be ready to expect Arctic weather conditions. The temperatures are normally between -5°C and -35°C in the winter so the smartest way to dress in Lapland would be layering. The first one, the one in contact with your skin, should be with wool or synthetic fibers, the second layer should be wool and fleece and the last one should be a down jacket or a jacket filled with synthetic fibers.

Underlayer:
• Two pairs liner socks (thin, quick-drying)
• liner gloves
• Synthetic underpants
• Synthetic long underwear tops and bottoms

Insulating layer 1:
• Thick insulating socks (one pair per day)
• Synthetic pants
• Synthetic shirt

Insulating layer 2:
• heavy gloves or mittens (mittens conserve heat better); plus extra pair in case one is lost
• Fleece pants
• Fleece vest

Outer layer:
• Down jacket, preferably with waterproof/breathable outer material
• Shell pants, waterproof/breathable
• Shell jacket with hood, waterproof/breathable
• neck gaiter or scarf
• shell mittens of waterproof/breathable material
• hat (fleece or wool)
• brimmed cap for warm, sunny days
• boots, waterproof and roomy enough for thick socks and toe-wiggling to prevent frostbite
• gaiters
• goggles (for wind and snow)

Two pairs of woolen socks and the warmest pants you have should be enough for your legs.
