EasyJet, a British multinational low-cost airline, introduced new flights to northern Iceland. This led to the opening of short break options in the Arctic Winter 2023-24 brochure of Regent Holidays, one of the first UK tour operators to specialise in Iceland holidays.
This year’s winter collection features holidays to Iceland, Lapland, Greenland, Norway and Sweden, with departures from November 1 until March 31, 2024.
Andrea Godfrey, the brand manager and destination specialist at Regent Holidays, said, “Our new brochure is packed with winter adventure ideas and amongst our popular itineraries and brand new holidays, we’re also excited that the new easyJet flights for this winter into Akureyri, Iceland, offer new opportunities for winter short breaks too.”
Regent was able to introduce a four-night North Iceland Winter fly-drive tour worth £1,095 based on two sharing thanks to the easyJet service from Gatwick to Akureyri.
Three themed packages set in and around Reykjavik have been reintroduced, each with new excursions. They offer the chance to explore lagoons and geothermal baths; mountains and glaciers; and Reykjavik’s gourmet restaurants and food trucks.
Meanwhile, a new tour option has opened up in Norway which is the eight-night Havila Voyages Winter Northbound Cruise, taking guests from Bergen to Kirkenes, visiting fjords, crossing the Arctic Circle and sailing around the North Cape plateau. This option includes a stay in Bergen and the Snow Hotel in Kirkenes and costs from £2,175 based on two sharing.
There are four new dates in 2024 for the popular Dog Sledding Expedition to East Greenland tour, while the Finnish itineraries will offer new options on room types at the Apukka Glass Igloos Resort.
