TOURS

Golden circle with a local is a tour for people who want to experience the wonders of the Golden Circle in a different way. People who want to experience all the other little things around the circle that are just as interesting and exciting as Þingvellir National Park, Gullfoss waterfall and Geysir hotspring. 

Tour the Golden circle with Herdís Friðriksdóttir, a local who has lived in the area for 12 years. Meet the people who build the community in the Golden Circle, people who grow flowers and vegetables in greenhouses, people who run a permaculture farm and drive an eco village. Hear the folklore and local stories, see other natural wonders not yet discovered by tourists, bake bread in the hotspring and eat it in a cave. Discover the world beyond the Golden Circle.

Knitting under the northern lights

18 - 22 march 2020 - 5 days / 4 nights

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 sheep and goatfarms, 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 in March and September 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 the cloudiness in the sky so nothing is guaranteed. 

We look forward to knitting with you!
