One Bag-What to Pack for One Week in Iceland

Here’s a quick list of the essentials you will need to pack to have the perfect Iceland vacation and not exceed your one bag limit for WOW Air.

Iceland what to pack


  • Thermal Pants/Long sleeve
  • One pair of thick leggings
  • One pair of jeans
  • 2-3 thick sweaters
  • Swimsuit (for the hot springs)
  • Pair of wool socks
  • Northface Parka and waterproof inner shell
  • Fur bomber hat (saved my poor little ears from the wind)
  • One large scarf
  • Warm hiking boots


  • Warm blanket
  • Lotion (cold air really dries out your skin)
  • Roll-up thermal sleeping bag
  • Headlamp
  • Camera bag and equipment

***We actually had to put the camera equipment in the bag pictured above and then smuggle it onto the plane underneath my parka. But everything else fit in one standard backpack.
