Riders and knitters of all levels are welcome to join our first Riding & Knitting Retreat! This trip combines two hobbies that run deep in Icelandic culture and mixes them with relaxation, delicious food, and great company.
A tour for both riding and writing enthusiasts, we will tailor the experience to fit everyone’s needs and goals. The tour will be customized based on riding skill level and interest, as well as what kinds of writing instruction and support participants would like.
Not (yet) a rider? Love Vikings, the Icelandic sagas, or Norse myths? This is the tour for you! Guided by author Nancy Marie Brown, we explore the Iceland of saga-master Snorri Sturluson and Viking Egil Skallagrimsson. We visit museums and saga sites, glaciers, volcanoes, hotsprings, waterfalls, and beaches, and enjoy gourmet meals based on local specialties.
