I, we, are off to Iceland in a few days to walk from Landmannalaugar down to Skógar and the Atlantic. We’ve been preparing for this trip for a while and made the last preparations yesterday with some additional notes on the map. Gear lists are done and everything is as ready as they can be.
Food for five days.
The gear lists can be found here below, just click the links and you’ll be transfered to LighterPack.com.
Here comes mine and Jon’s gear lists. This is what we have packed for our 5 day trip in Jotunheimen. Below every picture you’ll find a link to our gear lists (Excel files). If you have any improvements or comments please drop them below. I don’t think we have time to make large adjustments but it’s always nice to get feedback.
As you’ll find in the spreadsheets we’ve shared some gear between each other like the sleeping- and cooking system. My list will be complete with all the stuff I use if I were to go on a solo trip.
The real interesting thing is that last year on our longest trip, 4 days, we carried packs that weighed in at 22-24kg each including water… As you can see below, things have changed my friends!
My list – 8.9kg

With all the new stuff that arrived we wanted to have a quick taste of what’s to come.
We tried making creamy vegetables with couscous. Seasoned with bruschetta, salt and some cooking oil for extra flavor.
Vegetables and powdered cream in a freezer bag.
I must say that it tasted quite good! Way better than that crap you buy at the store… And also cheaper. The cost of the dried vegetables and cream divided over several dishes is a fraction of what a single freeze dried meal costs.
