Iceland, off the beaten path

March 18 - 29, 2022  

Our adventure starts at the tip-top of Iceland, with whale watching and a visit to spectacular volcanic lake, Myvatn. Next we travel around the east coast of the country. Authentic food, rugged landscape and coastal views will be ours. The trip southward then breaks for a mini-retreat inside Vatnajökull National Park. And once in the south, we'll visit Iceland's famous black beach at Vik and get to know the fiber community on the Woolen Circle. Might we catch a view of the Northern Lights??? We'll certainly be on the lookout! Our trip concludes in Reykjavik. Easy to add on a day or two for exploring the city.

A Fiber Adventure in Copenhagen & the Faroe Islands
April 23 - May 1, 2022 


This tour is a study in contrasts - the windswept and rugged beauty of the Faroe Islands and the cosmopolitan buzz of the streets and canals of Copenhagen.  Before our time in the Faroes (including a Faroese knitting festival!), we will enjoy a weekend in Copenhagen - cruising the canals, visiting royal palaces and modern design museums.  Regardless of where we are, we will delight in the hygge (cozy) experiences as we gather together to knit and as we catch glimpses of the arrival of Spring!

A Knitter's Tour of British Breeds

May 3 - 13, 2022



There’s no place like England for getting to know wool. Long and lustrous, downy and soft, springy, coarse, fine and feltable ⏤ we’ll explore all its potential by getting to know the sheep that bring us such a diverse range of fiber. Our tour of The West Country (Devon, Cornwall & the Cotswolds) will introduce you to the people, places and sheep that keep British wool among the world's very best.

A Wild Wales Holiday

May 16 - 24, 2022



Join us in Wales for a Wild and Woolly Holiday with Heather and Audrey! This will be a less formal retreat than our traditional tours.  Together we hatched a plan and decided to take a well-earned holiday and to invite our Merry Band of Travelers to join us on holiday.  Accommodations will be rustic-yet-gorgeous as we experience "Glamping" - a comfortable and rather luxurious type of camping!  We WILL have roofs over our heads, whether in a farmhouse, a garden cabin ... or maybe a geo-dome! We look forward to some typical sightseeing: castles, gardens, cathedrals and museums, dolphin spotting; as well exploring the quieter side of Wales with visits to remote chapels, seaside villages, and walks along the wild coastal paths to remote beaches. And of course a jaunt to at least one farm to check out some amazing organic wool! Come walk on the woolly wild side of Wales with us!

Ireland through the maker's lens

TWO TRIPS!
June 10 - 19, 2022
and June 17 - 26, 2022

Join Rowan Tree Travel & Fibercraft in June for one of our fiber-infused journeys to The Emerald Isle. Our trips begin or end in Dublin, the lively capitol city. But much of our time is beyond there, in country-wide exploring. We’ll be in lovely villages, lush countryside and along the craggy Atlantic shores. We’ll meet some of Ireland’s most influential fiber folks – teachers, designers, dyers and doers – and hear about the current struggle to keep Irish wool production alive. We’ll also spend time at historic sites, farm-to-table venues, famous distilleries, lavish country houses, cozy inns and get to know good Irish craic in the pubs. What an adventure. We can’t wait to share it with you!
