Knitting tours

Why go to Iceland on a knitting holiday if not to learn about the many and various Icelandic knitting traditions?

Our knitting travels attract knitters from all over the world, including native Icelanders, for an unforgettable experience where Icelandic traditions and culture, breathtaking nature and master knitting workshops, perfectly balance one another.

The knitting holidays are a collaboration between Icelandic designer Hélène Magnússon and Icelandic Mountain Guides, a leading tour operator in Iceland. They are happy to have Hélène back in the touring world and to offer the novelty of knitting tours! 

The knitting tours are designed to give an insight into Icelandic Culture and Knitting Traditions. The objective is to mix knitting with the beautiful Icelandic nature and meet local people, knitters, spinners, dyers, designers, farmers. Each tour has its own way of exploring Icelandic knitting heritage, whether it´s by hiking, trekking or by short walks on a discovery adventure. Everyone should be able to find a knitting tour suitable for their needs, would it be our adventurous hiking and knitting tours or our inspiring and confortable knitting retreats. Our selection of knitting travels covers all seasons, summer, winter, fault and spring and each seasonal tour has its own special feature and Icelandic knitting workshops.
