How to dress for winter in Swedish Lapland

Dressing in layers in really cold temperatures is key to staying warm and comfortable. By wearing multiple layers of clothing, you can regulate your body temperature by removing or adding clothing depending on the weather conditions.

Base layer: Start with a thin, moisture-wicking base layer closest to the body. This layer helps keep the skin dry by wicking sweat away from the body. For example, wool works well for this purpose.

Mid layer: The next step is to add an intermediate layer. These layers are responsible for insulating and keeping the heat. Fleece, down or synthetic insulating garments are good choices for mid-layers.

Outer layer: The outermost layer should be wind and waterproof to protect you against cold, wind and precipitation.

Insulating layers: If it’s extremely cold, consider adding an extra insulating layer such as a down vest or a thicker insulated jacket. This provides extra warmth without making the clothes too heavy or bulky.

Underwear: Don’t forget to use warming underwear such as woolen or thermal pants and a warm hat to keep warm and avoid heat leaking from the head and legs.

Gloves and socks: Invest in thick and insulating gloves and warm wool socks to keep your hands and feet warm.

Footwear: Insulated winter boots or boots with thick soles are essential to keep feet warm and protected.

Scarf: Use a scarf or similar to protect your neck and neck from the cold.

Beanie: The beanie is a simple but important part of winter clothing that can make a big difference in keeping you warm and comfortable in the cold. By keeping your head warm with a hat, you ensure that more blood and heat reaches your hands and feet, helping to keep your whole body warm.
