66°North was founded in 1926 by Hans Kristjánsson with the purpose of making protective clothing for Icelandic fishermen and workers braving the North Atlantic elements. Today the company makes functional clothing without compromise for all kinds of outdoor activity.
66°NORTH stores in Copenhagen Østergade 6 and Sværtegade 12
We are proud of our rich heritage and this year we celebrate 66°North's 90th anniversary. The building that houses the store in Østergade is from 1826 and therefore it is 100 years older than 66°North. It has as great history as well and plays a role in Østergade‘s remarkable story that goes back to the year 1447. The store was designed in keeping with the history of this beautiful building.
