Winter Travel Attire - Spain + Portugal

Jump to last reply

Hello!
I am travelling to Spain (Barcelona, Madrid) and Portugal (Lisbon) in February. I am trying to determine what the best winter travel apparel would be. I live on the east coast of Canada, where a normal winter day is 0 degrees to -10 degrees Celsius and very damp. On the colder days here, I typically wear a wool hip length peacoat with my normal clothing underneath and am comfortable in that, I tend to run on the warmer side.

I am backpacking and staying in hostels, so I am trying to pack as lightly as possible. I am thinking a mid-thigh trench coat with some water resistance and can layer accordingly underneath. I would of course bring mittens and scarves.

Will this be warm enough in that climate?

I am also wondering if it is acceptable to wear tights with boots while I am there, as they are the lightest to pack and easily dried.

Thanks in advance for your help!
