I travelled to Iceland on a 7 day knitting tour arranged though Esja Travel. It was by far beyond my wildest dreams. Ragga is a generous, patient, gifted knitter who extols the great virtues of Icelandic wool and knitting. She answered all our questions and generously gave us so much of her wisdom...she is so inspiring. On top of that she is a wonderful guide and has a delightful sense of humor.
Frankly, much of the time those of us on the tour were pinching ourselves to make sure this was all real!
We toured many of the sites generally known as the circle tour on our first day ending up at Hotel Fljotshlid for 5 days. It was the perfect place to knit, eat, knit, laugh, knit, tour the area (waterfalls, glaciers, the Saga Museum where we all had a chance to put some stitches In the Saga tapestry!) and just learn so much.
Our trip culminated at the Alafoss store on our way back to Reykjavik....and knitters nirvana!
I highly recommend taking a class or a tour from Ragga. She has made great connections through the country that appeal to fiber enthusiasts.
I hope to return someday for another tour with Ragga and Esja Travel. I learned so much about Iceland, saw many beautiful sites and can't wait to continue to increase my skills and knowledge of knitting and Iceland.
