THERE IS NO BAD WEATHER, ONLY BAD CLOTHING. -- SCANDINAVIAN SAYING
PACKING LIST
  • Snow boots (you NEED warm boots!)
  • 1 heavy winter parka (the longer the better)
  • A few pairs of thick, wool socks (merino wool is great!)
  • Long johns or wool thermals (wool will keep you warmer than cotton or poly blends)
  • 2 sweaters (wool)
  • 1-2 base layer tops (merino wool), especially if you get extra cold
  • Underwear
  • Warm Pajamas (or sleep in your base layers/long johns)
  • Mittens or gloves (Mittens are much warmer than gloves)
  • A warm beanie
  • Scarf or neck gaiter
  • Multiple pairs of comfortable jeans or black leggings
  • A few comfortable tops
  • Sunglasses (if you have sensitive eyes like me)
  • Legwarmers if your boots short, or snow pants
  • I would suggest bringing one ‘semi-nice’ outfit for dinner out. Norway is super laid back and a pair of jeans and a sweater and boots will suffice for a nice outfit.
  • You won't really need any other shoes except for good quality snow boots
  • Flip-flops or sandals for ice bathing or saunas
  • Personal medication
  • Toiletries
  • Sunscreen
  • Journal & pen/pencil

Frequently Asked Questions
If you expedite a passport it can take 4-6 weeks, otherwise, it's about 6-12 weeks.
We don't have anything solid yet, but IDEAS we have for next year are: Kilimanjaro Scotland/Ireland Egypt?? Greece? Turkey?
During the 3 days between Norway trips they can hang out at the same hotel as us (potentially with our teens), but meals and accommodations are on their own, and we won't be doing anything 'specific' with them. We'll just be relaxing :D
