Hi & welcome! 

In August 2022 I packed my gravel bike to ride 3.500 km from Hamburg to the North Cape. I cycled along the Norwegian coast following the Eurovelo 1. I spent 30 days and 30 nights on the road fully self-supported. I carried everything from my tent, my little kitchen, my clothes, my food and my water on my bike. On the go, I changed a few things, bought a few new items of clothing and left other items behind - like changing from sneakers to waterproof boots. This list is a complete list of everything I needed in the end and what I would pack again for a trip like this. 

Feel free to take this packlist as a piece of “hands-on inspiration”. Bikepacking is minimalistic, simply because the space is limited and one's needs are basic. Yet it is a complex process besides the planning and the mental preparation for a trip by bike. For me packing - just like traveling in itself - is all about finding out what is comfortable and right for YOU. 

Please note before reading: I would always recommend to use the equipment that you have at home before buying new things. Not only for sustainability reasons but also for efficiency and comfort. Using what you know from home is often better than using equipment that you have not tested and approved to be useful for yourself.

Another important note: In Norway I had a fair mix of rainy and sunny days. Most days temperatures were between 10-18 degrees Celsius. It was never freezing at night and I felt rather a bit too warm at night than too cold. Items with affiliate links are marked with a star (*).

Find a summary of my trip on YouTube.  The YouTube movie was produced and by Fabienne Engel. She brought her own camera equipment like the drone and a DSLR camera with her and followed me in a rental car for the last four days of the trip. I only filmed with my phone and GoPro.
