Packing for Iceland and Finland Winter 2022

In less than a week, I will be departing Australia and making my way to Iceland for my 2022 Winter Arctic Fox Expedition and then onto Finland for my Winter Wolves and Wildlife workshop. These are my first workshops for the 2022 year and I am really excited to get back out into the field. Although I managed to escape Australia in October of 2021 (Read the trip Report) for an Autumn workshop to Finland, this is winter and my favoruite time of the year to visit both Iceland and Finland. Not only do I get to escape the brutal Australian summer, I get to spend time with Arctic Foxes and Wolves in their resplendant winter coats in the snow of the Arctic winter. To say I am excited would be a serious understatement.

This will be my first real opportunity to test the Canon EOS R3 in the field in real winter and I am really excited to see how it performs in the cold. Both of these expeditions are dedicated to wildlife and as such I will be packing my long lenses for this trip. There are also some wonderful landscape opportunities around the frozen lakes in Finland and as such I will also take both a wide-angle and mid range zoom with me. My intention is to try and run fully mirrorless this trip. I am really only packing the 1DX MK3 and 600mm lens as a back up in case I have issues with the R3 in the cold. As you can see, the only lens that I am packing that will actually work with the 1DX MK3 is the 600mm EF MK3.
