Knitting and Stitching in the Faroe Islands

Take a stitch and quilting break with Arena travel.

12th May 2017

Following the popularity of our knitting holidays in the Faroes we have had requests to include some of the textile highlights of this wonderful island. So, we have worked with Karin Hellaby, who is a fan of all things Nordic and are delighted to offer this new tour that will appeal to those with an interest in quilting, textiles and a broad range of crafts.

Throughout your holiday you will be staying at the charming Hotel Føroyar, in a great location perfect for absorbing all that the Faroe Islands have to offer.
