This trip to Iceland is only the beginning and we are looking forward to reveal more, when all the details is settled!
FACTS ABOUT 66°NORTH
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. Hans Kristjansson lived in Suðureyri in Súgandafjörður in Westfjords of Iceland where weather conditions were very harsh and right clothing was therefore a matter of life and death for Icelandic fishermen. Hans was passionate about creating garments that would hold up to the harsh conditions fishermen faced while trolling the seas of Iceland so he moved to Norway to learn how to tailor and sew fishermen‘s clothing. When Hans moved back to Suðureyri he founded Sjóklæðagerð Íslands (Fishermen‘s clothing factory of Iceland) now better known as 66°NORTH. 66°NORTH derives its name from the latitudinal line of the Arctic Circle which touches Súgandafjörður where the company was founded in 1926.
Going to Westfjords
With Fannar and Tommi
One of the many things that I love about Iceland is the many infinity roads, that seems to never end!
After Westfjords, Fannar and Tommi had to go back to work, so they gave us the rest of the week to ourselves!
Nikolaj and I took the long way to the south-east of Iceland by taken a detour through the highland.
It was amazing!
Walking on an in-active volcano
Vik, Black sands
With Local guide
We climbed 300 meters(76 floors) above sea level and found this Ice tunnel in a glacier mountain.
We were hoping for some Ice caves, but at this time of the year, it is just not safe for us to go in.
