NORWAY KNITTING TOUR

In 2016 we got a request for a Knitting tour. That was a new type
of tour for us and a bit outside of our core competency. But being
used to doing all sorts of special interest tours, we worked with
our client, Battenkill Fibers, to design a custom made tour. The
tour sold out quickly and went for 9 days in October, 2017.  It
ended up being one of the more successful tours we've done

The tour had a mix of knitting workshops in Oslo, Bergen and the
fjord village of Ulvik along with some visits of special interest for
knitters, such as the
Oleana  and Dale sweater factories and the
Norwegian Knitting Industry Museum.

Since this was the first time most of the tour members were in
Norway, we also included sights of general interest like the Flåm
Railway, a  cruise on the fjord, visits to a Stave Church and a
farm as well as seeing some of the main sights in Oslo and
Bergen.
