Destination Overview

Norway, with its rich history and vibrant cultural tapestry, also boasts an impressive heritage in knitting and textiles which is deeply entwined with its spectacular landscapes and distinct climate. Gleaming glaciers, foaming waterfalls, soaring mountains, beautiful valleys, and ice-blue mountain lakes are all part of Norway’s stunning fjordland canvas, and our craft holidays to this remarkable destination combine your favourite hobby with the chance to see some of the most stunning scenery of offer – all whilst providing endless inspiration for your creative pastime. 

Set against a backdrop of breathtaking natural beauty, enjoy a journey through the traditions and techniques of Norway’s knitting industry, and the social and economic importance of this craft. Hillesvåg Wool Spinning Mill offers a fascinating look at the entire process of wool making, whilst Osteroy Open-Air Museum specialises in textile and clothing history, keeping traditions alive through active collaboration with researchers, artists, and designers. Join one of our cruises to take in the beautiful fjords from a different perspective, with visits to destinations such as Bergen, Ålesund and Tromsø along the way. You can explore shops specialising in Nordic arts and crafts and soak up the awe-inspiring scenery between working on your own crafts.

In the company of our renowned experts, who will lead workshops inspired by Norway’s vast and diverse landscapes, uncover the essence of Norway’s appeal whilst honing your skills on your own creative project.
