  • 2 towels–one for the hot springs and one for the hotel
  • Flip flops for walking around the thermal pool area
  • WARM clothes. Iceland is chilly even in the summer! We recommend fleece-lined leggings, WOOL socks (cotton socks cause blisters and don’t dry well), warm sweatshirts, mittens/gloves, hat, scarf, windbreaker jacket (Iceland is also really windy!). NO SHORTS!
  • Footwear: Insulated waterproof boots (regular rubber rain boots with no insulation will leave your feet cold). Our guide recommends something like LL Bean’s classic boots. If your boots aren’t comfortable for hiking long distances, we also recommend hiking shoes or sturdy sneakers.
  • Good books, podcasts, TV episodes/movies downloaded on your phone/tablet–we have a lot of time in the bus as we road trip around the country.
  • Optional: A cold proof and waterproof case for your smartphone. iPhones tend to turn off when they get too cold (our guide found out the hard way), and we’ll be near waterfalls with lots of spray that get phones wet.
  • For those participating in the Glacier Trek Optional Excursion, PLEASE bring waterproof pants

TRIP SPECIFIC ITEMS

  • Bathing suit: We’ll be soaking in the hot springs!
  • 2 towels–one for the hot springs and one for the hotel
  • Flip flops for walking around the thermal pool area
  • WARM clothes. Iceland is chilly even in the summer! We recommend fleece-lined leggings, WOOL socks (cotton socks cause blisters and don’t dry well), warm sweatshirts, mittens/gloves, hat, scarf, windbreaker jacket (Iceland is also really windy!). NO SHORTS!
  • Footwear: Insulated waterproof boots (regular rubber rain boots with no insulation will leave your feet cold). Our guide recommends something like LL Bean’s classic boots. If your boots aren’t comfortable for hiking long distances, we also recommend hiking shoes or sturdy sneakers.
  • Good books, podcasts, TV episodes/movies downloaded on your phone/tablet–we have a lot of time in the bus as we road trip around the country.
  • Optional: A cold proof and waterproof case for your smartphone. iPhones tend to turn off when they get too cold (our guide found out the hard way), and we’ll be near waterfalls with lots of spray that get phones wet.
  • For those participating in the Glacier Trek Optional Excursion, PLEASE bring waterproof pants

CLOTHING ESSENTIALS & PERSONAL ITEMS

  • Comfortable clothes
  • 1 dressy-casual outfit for your fancy final dinner
  • 1 pair of comfortable walking shoes with thick soles
  • 1 – 2 pairs of jeans/long pants
  • 2 – 3 pairs of shorts
  • 5 – 7 shirts (nothing with inappropriate messages on it)
  • Do not bring enough outfits for every day you will be away! You will be able to do laundry, ask your trip director for more information.
  • Personal toiletries in travel-sized containers. If you have any allergies or sensitivities to certain soaps or materials commonly used in hygiene products, be sure to bring what works for you. If you are bringing a razor for shaving, scissors or a liquid more than 3 oz, be sure to pack them in your checked luggage.
  • Spare glasses, contacts, etc. (if necessary)

LUGGAGE

  • 1 piece of checked luggage – max weight 44 lbs/20 kgs. Going over 44 lbs/20 kgs will cost you extra luggage fees at the airport. Never pack more than you yourself can carry.
  • 1 daypack for the flights (carry-on bag) & for days during the trip (example: a backpack or over-the shoulder bag). Sometimes luggage can get lost, so pack a second outfit in your carry-on.

RECOMMENDED ITEMS

  • Sunglasses
  • Sunscreen
  • Hat
  • Bathing suit
  • Travel towel
  • Refillable water bottle
  • Dramamine
  • Insect Repellent & Afterbite
  • Headlamp, or Small flashlight & batteries
  • Earplugs
  • Internationally accepted ATM/debit card
  • Converter and adapter(s) for your electronic accessories
  • Extra batteries & chargers for your electronics

WHAT NOT TO BRING

  • MORE THAN ONE SUITCASE (This doesn’t include your carry-on/daypack)
  • Anything illegal!
  • Anything that could be considered a weapon including but not limited to laser pointers
  • Laptops (unless it is a Photography trip)
  • Expensive cameras/electronics/jewelry — YOU BRING AT YOUR OWN RISK!

TRIP SPECIFIC ITEMS

  • Bathing suit: We’ll be soaking in the hot springs!
  • 2 towels–one for the hot springs and one for the hotel
  • Flip flops for walking around the thermal pool area
  • WARM clothes. Iceland is chilly even in the summer! We recommend fleece-lined leggings, WOOL socks (cotton socks cause blisters and don’t dry well), warm sweatshirts, mittens/gloves, hat, scarf, windbreaker jacket (Iceland is also really windy!). NO SHORTS!
  • Footwear: Insulated waterproof boots (regular rubber rain boots with no insulation will leave your feet cold). Our guide recommends something like LL Bean’s classic boots. If your boots aren’t comfortable for hiking long distances, we also recommend hiking shoes or sturdy sneakers.
  • Good books, podcasts, TV episodes/movies downloaded on your phone/tablet–we have a lot of time in the bus as we road trip around the country.
  • Optional: A cold proof and waterproof case for your smartphone. iPhones tend to turn off when they get too cold (our guide found out the hard way), and we’ll be near waterfalls with lots of spray that get phones wet.
  • For those participating in the Glacier Trek Optional Excursion, PLEASE bring waterproof pants

  • 2 towels–one for the hot springs and one for the hotel
  • Flip flops for walking around the thermal pool area
  • WARM clothes. Iceland is chilly even in the summer! We recommend fleece-lined leggings, WOOL socks (cotton socks cause blisters and don’t dry well), warm sweatshirts, mittens/gloves, hat, scarf, windbreaker jacket (Iceland is also really windy!). NO SHORTS!
  • Footwear: Insulated waterproof boots (regular rubber rain boots with no insulation will leave your feet cold). Our guide recommends something like LL Bean’s classic boots. If your boots aren’t comfortable for hiking long distances, we also recommend hiking shoes or sturdy sneakers.
  • Good books, podcasts, TV episodes/movies downloaded on your phone/tablet–we have a lot of time in the bus as we road trip around the country.
  • Optional: A cold proof and waterproof case for your smartphone. iPhones tend to turn off when they get too cold (our guide found out the hard way), and we’ll be near waterfalls with lots of spray that get phones wet.
  • For those participating in the Glacier Trek Optional Excursion, PLEASE bring waterproof pants.
  • Extra battery for your camera
  • USB cord to connect your camera to a laptop computer
  • Your camera instruction manual
  • Optional: tripod
  • Optional: laptop computer

  • Insect Repellent and Afterbite
  • Small flashlight or headlamp
  • Headphones for the plane and down time
  • Converter and adapter(s) for your electronic accessories – Tanzania uses plug types D and G, with G being the more common type (the same as the UK).

  • Travel pillow

  • Athletic clothes for after school sports – gym shorts and running shorts (shorts can hit above the knee in this case), athletic tops (tank tops are fine for sports activities), sports bra(s)
  • Male participants: shirts with sleeves, trousers, and shorts at or below the knee
  • Female participants: loose trousers and/or skirts/dresses that fall below the knee and shirts and blouses that cover the shoulders and are not too low cut or backless. No belly shirts!
  • Decks of cards, colored pencils & coloring books, string for friendship bracelets, etc. are always great to bring to share with the students – anything for arts and crafts and easy to learn games!
  • Back-up snacks: many meal times will offer limited choices, so if you are a picky eater or have dietary restrictions, it’s a good idea to pack a few granola bars, etc. so you have something on hand
  • A long-sleeve top for evenings – it will be very hot during the day, but when the sun goes down, the temperature can be chilly (especially up in the north, temps range from 60-90 degrees Fahrenheit on any given day)
  • One “nice” outfit to dress up a bit for our final dinner in Morogoro and our final dinner in Arusha (nothing fancy, just something fun for a nice meal together!)
