Ready to Join?

The Lopapeysa (Icelandic sweaters) Festival is taking place on Wednesday, 12 July, at Petersen Suite's rooftop with wonderful views over the old town. Put on your lopapeysa and join us for an evening of traditional Icelandic fun!

Our raffle will take place at the festival, tickets are free and we’ll be drawing the winning numbers at 22:00.

HISTORY OF THE LOPAPEYSA
Surprisingly enough, it only dates back to the 1950’s with influence from Scandinavia and Greenland. It soon gained widespread popularity and made a lasting impression in Icelandic imagery. The sweater received a resurgence in popularity after the economic crisis in 2008, becoming something of a national symbol in the movement to restore national identity and boost morale.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
