How to pack for a trip to Lapland?

Lapland is a truly magical destination that will captivate you with its snowy landscapes, northern lights and Christmas traditions.

Before embarking on this unforgettable trip, it is essential that you prepare yourself adequately to enjoy the experience to the fullest, as the country can be extremely cold, especially in winter.

For all these reasons, today we present you a detailed list of the preparations that we recommend you to take for your next trip to Lapland this Christmas:

1. Warm clothing

It is essential to wear high quality winter clothing that will keep you warm and protected against low temperatures. Opt for coats and jackets with thermal insulation, preferably waterproof to protect you from the snow.

In addition, gloves, hats and scarves are essential to keep your extremities warm and prevent loss of body heat.

2. Full thermal suit provided by NUBA

To ensure that you are well prepared for the intense cold of Lapland, our NUBA team will provide you with a full thermal suit with hood.

These suits are designed to offer optimal protection against the coldest temperatures, allowing you to enjoy your outdoor activities without worrying about the cold.

3. Snow boots and mittens

Choosing the right footwear is crucial in winter conditions. NUBA will provide you with specially designed snow boots that will keep your feet dry and warm throughout the trip. Mittens, which are also part of the equipment provided, will help keep your hands comfortable and protected.

4. Thermal underwear and additional layers

In addition to the thermal suit, it is advisable to wear thermal underwear to provide an additional layer of insulation. Additional layers, such as sweaters and sweatshirts, will allow you to regulate your body temperature according to changing conditions.

5. Camera with additional batteries

In Lapland, you will find yourself surrounded by dazzling landscapes and unique moments, such as the famous Northern Lights. Be sure to bring a camera with extra batteries to capture all these magical experiences and take with you lasting memories of your trip.

6. Other useful articles

Don’t forget to bring sunscreen and sunglasses, as the snow strongly reflects sunlight. It is also useful to carry a small backpack to store your personal belongings during excursions and activities.

7. Remember the importance of limb warmth.

In addition to keeping the body warm, it is crucial to protect the extremities from extreme cold. Wear thermal socks to keep your feet warm and make sure your hands and face are adequately covered.
