Some advice for dress code and clothing for excursions
The weather can vary a lot in Lapland. If we are lucky the day temperatures may be above 20 ºC (68 ºF), but if we less lucky, it can be rainy and cold, below below 10 ºC (50 ºF) even in August.
We have planned the social events partly to take place outdoors, and this is why we recommend you to take outdoor clothing with you. Wind and rain proof clothing is recommendable for the excursions and also some warm layer to add if needed. But, on the other hand, also some light clothing and sun cover maybe needed. Also, you may want to be prepared for mosquitoes (which should not be very bad in August; only annoying, no threat of diseases if not allergic) just in case. We recommend also hiking boots for those who plan to hike from Saariselkä to Kiilopää on Thursday afternoon.
Dress code in the conference is 'casual'. At conference dinner on Friday night, those who have registered may think of 'smart casual' dressing.
