Thanks, that's useful. I don't have a balaclava, but I do have a "buff" and a scarf, and we're all getting team hats that will cover our ears.

I used my buff extensively in both Arctic Norway and Finland, in combination with a warm hat. I found it useful as a scarf to stop hot air escaping from my jacket and useful to pull up around my ears and over my nose when the wind got up, like a lightweight balaclava.

When I was too hot and needed to take it off it wrapped neatly around my wrist a couple of times and I could forget I had it with me.

I can also recommend a pair of magic gloves (google them) which, for about a pound, are a great base layer to wear under warmer gloves or when you are out of the wind. They also don't matter if you lose them or leave them in a cafe because they are only a pound!

Don't forget you will probably be able to buy stuff in Rovenami as well. Ruth bought a pair of thermal longjohns in a supermarket in Tromso for £25 that would have been £60 in the UK.
