Made for Knitters

Specially designed for knitters, this Stitchtopia knitting holiday is the ideal opportunity to meet like-minded knitters and indulge in your favourite hobby. Our talented knitting expert will be on hand throughout the holiday and host inspirational workshops with a beautifully designed project to get those needles clicking!

Circumnavigating Iceland, taking in extraordinary waterways and ports along the way, you’re in for an exhilarating adventure packed with opportunities to marvel at the awe-inspiring natural wonders and dramatic landscapes and of one of the world’s most spectacular countries.

In Reykjavik our included excursion combines some of the highlights of the classic ‘Golden Circle’ with visits to the producers of the famous Álafosslopi yarns. 

Our knitting expert, Jane Crowfoot, will offer four full day knitting workshops on board, as well as plenty of opportunities for social knitting as we circumnavigate Iceland. Her workshops will focus on working in the round using both stranded and fairisle knitting techniques and beading. Jane will also show how to create and cut through a steek in your knitting. 

Your Accommodation



Proudly bearing the name of Fred. Olsen Jr.’s great-great-grandmother, as many other Olsen vessels have over the years, Bolette exudes classic, elegant style in her exterior and interior design, features spacious and comfortable public areas, and has all the facilities and special touches you need for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday.

While she’s one of the largest ships, by overall size, in the Fred. Olsen fleet, Bolette has capacity for less than 1,400 guests.
