Don’t buy winter clothing for your trip in Lapland – rent them instead!
If you are visiting Lapland especially in the wintertime, you might be thinking: what to wear at the arctic temperatures? In the winter, the temperatures can easily go to -20 degrees and under. Then you really want to wear enough clothes! If you are planning on doing any activities like husky rides, snowmobile adventures, skiing or just spending time outdoors, you want to keep yourself warm. But is it possible to rent winter clothing in Lapland? Yes it is!
It’s not necessary to buy all the winter clothes and equipment from your home country. In fact, it’s not even a very sustainable option. Especially if you are living in a warmer country and don’t have the need for them that often! With renting, you also save a lot of space from your luggage. In the wintertime in Lapland you need a lot of different things: proper shoes to walk in the snow, a good jacket and winter trousers. For many an overall can be the most convenient option. Gloves, hats and wool socks are also a must! Here you can also see what other things you might need for your outdoor adventures. Many safari companies are including winter clothing in their activities, but you might want them for your whole stay.
