Knitting under the northern lights!
18 - 22 march 2020 - 5 days / 4 nights
Knitting under the northern lights is a tour for women with interest in knitting, handicraft, good food, good company and wine......oh and northern lights!
The tour is packed with knitting adventures as the group will visit woolshops and galleries, meet other motivated knitters, attend a workshops in spinning, wrapping and dying wool. They will visit a sheepfarm, see the animals and learn about the uniqueness of the icelandic wool. They will get to know the process of producing wool from the sheepfarm to woolshop. There will be plenty of time for knitting but also for good food, wine, laughter and joy! The group will be accompanied Herdís Friðriksdóttir, a enthusiastic knitter and a local guide.
The tour is planned for 18-22 March 2020 as this is the time when the northern lights are the most visible in Iceland. By staying in Iceland for 5 days in this time period guests are maximizing their chance to see the northern lights. However, seeing the northern lights depends on solar winds that collide with the Earth's magnetic fields and on the cloud cover over South Iceland. The northern lights are at their peak around the equinoz in March and September each year. During your stay, we will be on a lookout for the northern lights, and will take the group northern lights hunting on the nights of the best chance to see them.
We look forward to knitting with you!
