An Ionian Knitting Odyssey in Greece

I have traveled twice with Rowan Tree Travels and each time was a wonderfully curated experience with local experiences and cultural anchors. Rowan Tree provides care, consideration, and respect to the people and places we visit and to the travel participants. I treasure my trips!

Wool & Wonders of New Zealand

A wonderful trip with wonderful people! I had so many unique experiences that I would have never have discovered on my own, and met some real kindred spirits both on the tour and amongst the people we met in New Zealand. Well worth the cost.

Ireland Through the Maker's Lens with Yarn VT

As a seasoned traveler, I can, without hesitation, say that the Ireland Through the Maker’s Lens is my all time favorite trip. The excursions, workshops, accommodations, food, and professionalism of the Rowan Tree team cannot be surpassed.

Woolen Wales

My second trip with Rowan Tree and am already planning on traveling with them next year! Fabulous staff who are uber-accommodating and knowledgeable, local visits I would never find on my own, first-rate food and lodging, and a lovely and congenial group of fiber enthusiasts with whom to travel.

Midsummer Knitting in Norway

RTT was the best tour trip I've ever taken. Small groups, unique experiences and fabulous leaders! There's a reason why RTT has Super Fans!

Woolen Wales

Woolen Wales was delightful. The leaders were knowledgeable and approachable and the tour offered a good balance of interesting places to visit, time to chat with other participants and time to knit on our own. I'd heartily recommend this tour!

Textiles & Treasures of the Scottish Borders

Abbotsford and the Scottish Borders are peaceful and magical. The people are kind and welcoming. This trip was the rest and restoration I needed.

An Ionian Knitting Odyssey

An Ionian Knitting Odyssey was the trip of a lifetime. What a delightful way to explore so much of Greece! Heather is an incredibly organized and passionate Fiber Ambassador who skillfully shepherded us through a whirlwind of unique experiences: learning from a Kefalonian lace expert, exploring Mycenaean palace ruins, meeting the dyer for the trip's knit-a-long yarn, and more.

Kaitlin H

Textiles & Treasures of the Scottish Borders

It was a very enjoyable experience. Scotland and it's people are so beautiful and welcoming. The visits to a fiber festival, farms and mills were amazing! Our guide Lindsay and driver John helped make the trip extra special in so many ways!

For anyone wanting inspiration, to meet new people and be in a beautiful environment this trip fits it all.

Midsummer Knitting in Norway

Rowan Tree Travel Tours are unique and have something for everyone. They are not just about the yarn and the knitting, (although, to be clear, there’s plenty of that), but they go beyond, allowing for cultural immersion, education, fun, and adventure. Most important, they are small enough to allow for the creating of lasting memories and friendships.

Cotswolds Walking Holiday

The Cotswold's walking tour was wonderful. It is beautiful countryside and steeped in the history of wool.
