Things to Prepare Before Taking a Road Trip in Iceland: Text

Sony A7 III

My favorite thing about this mirrorless camera is its light weight and compact size. It's great for travel photography and produces sharp pictures.

I used it for wide-angle shots as well as long exposures of waterfalls and the beach. It produces sharp pictures.


My favorite lens if I'm trying to separate the subject from the background in portraits or if I'm trying to capture something from a distance. It takes sharp pictures.


This ND filter was perfect for this trip since I wanted to try long-exposure photography with an ND filter. Having never done any long-exposure photography before, it has been very useful for someone like me.


This was a very useful item for this trip. The weather can be unpredictable in Iceland, so the cover kept my camera dry when it rained and was handy when I took photos of waterfalls.


Whenever we go hiking and I have to carry my backpack, I always have this. It keeps my backpack dry at all times.

Rollei Compact Traveler No. 1 Tripod

My favorite thing about it is that it is light and easy to carry. It is also handy when I am taking long exposures of waterfalls.


Puffer Jacket

On top of two layers of clothes, I wore Superdry's Fuji Slim 3 in 1 jacket, which kept me dry and warm. I used it even when it was raining. It kept me dry and it dries fast as well. A hoodie with faux fur shields me from freezing winds if they get too windy.

Hiking Boots

In Iceland, there are many hiking opportunities, so you should wear hiking boots that are suitable for rugged and wet terrain. I used Columbia Women's 100MW Mid Outdry Hiking Shoe. It's super sturdy, dry, and comfortable.


Hiking Socks

Hiking socks make hiking much more comfortable. I used Classic Merino Wool Hiking Socks, which are affordable and come in three packs.


Green Cell Inverter for car 12V to 230V, 500W / 1000W Pure sine

This was specifically bought for this trip. It was a good investment. It allowed us to charge all of our electronic devices, including our laptops.
