The right clothing is the key to a pleasant glacier expedition. As the weather on a glacier can change quickly, we advise dressing in layers. Also, keep in mind that clothing might vary, depending on the season.
The important items for a glacier hike include a waterproof jacket and pants, thermal underwear, headwear, and gloves. Sturdy hiking shoes, of course, are a must. We also suggest bringing sunglasses, especially in summer.
As glacier hiking is very physical, you might get sweaty. That said, we suggest avoiding cotton, as it holds moisture and absorbs body heat when it gets wet. Quick-drying synthetic fabrics such as nylon are ideal.
