Knitting on Ice

Two departures: October 25th - 31st, 2017
and Novembre 6th – 12th, 2017

6-day knitting tour with glacier walk, hot springs, Northern lights; Icelandic lopi yoke sweater

This 6 day long knitting tour is a magical combination of Icelandic knitting, enigmatic nature and delicate autumn colors. It takes us on a glacier walk at Sólheimajökull Glacier, which gives us the opportunity to knit on the ice! Away from the city lights, we will hopefully spot the magical Northern lights and one of the most expensive view of Iceland. We will also hike in the Smokey Valley made of hot springs and blue mud pots and dip ourselves in a hot geothermal river. All the way, Hélène will give us an insight into the Icelandic knitting tradition with focus on a very useful item at this time of the year: the Icelandic lopi yoke sweater – lopapeysa – and we’ll learn new and old techniques. Accommodation in a picturesque country guesthouse with a grassroof and many sheep. Sleeping bag accommodations. Comfortable guesthouse with dressed beds in Reykjavík.

Upon booking, and in order to make the hikes enjoyable, please make sure your are familiar with the day-to-day itinerary, the ascents/descents and the number of km/miles walked per day, as well as the list of clothing and walking gear to bring (equipment list).
