By Scunthorpe Telegraph | Posted: 12 Apr 2019
If hunting for the Northern Lights is on your list of things to do before you die then why not secure your place on a new flight departing from Humberside Airport.
Following the previous success of its ‘Incredible North Iceland’ breaks, short-break specialist Super Break has announced a new programme of getaways to northern Iceland including a departure from Humberside Airport.
These ultimate one-of-a-kind breaks offers holidaymakers the opportunity to see the north coast of Iceland at its wildest and genuinely go off the beaten track with exclusive three-night experiences.
Still the only operator in the UK to fly direct to North Iceland, the new breaks all include exclusive regional flights direct to Akureyri, a three-night hotel stay and two excursions – including the chance to hunt for the spectacular Northern Lights and visit breath-taking Game of Thrones filming locations.
All trips include a Lake Myvatn Adventure – Land of Fire and Ice Tour, which offers the chance to see the region’s magical terrain, including the Goddafoss Waterfall and the boiling mud pools of Namafjall.
Deborah Zost, Humberside Airport’s managing director, said: “Following on from the success of this year’s flights from Humberside Airport to Akureyri in Northern Iceland, we are delighted to see Super Break unveiling its 2020 short break programme to Northern Iceland with a direct flight from Humberside Airport again included.
"This latest offer provides leisure travellers from our region with another opportunity to experience this fantastic destination.”
Holidaymakers can also choose from a huge variety of unique experiences to add to their trip:
- Myvatn Nature Baths – visit the ‘Blue Lagoon of the North’ and indulge in the relaxing geothermally heated water
- Whale watching - head out to Eeyjafjörður with excellent chances to see the resident humpback whales, harbour porpoises and dolphins
- Snowmobiling – explore Northern Iceland and see magnificent views of the surrounding mountains and the beautiful Krafla Volcano
- Beer spa – discover the unique Bjorbodin spa and relax in a private room equipped with a beer bath and beer tap (providing unlimited beer!)
Flying with Titan Airways, all breaks are ATOL-protected and include transfers, hold bags, and two pre-booked excursions – as well as flights from their local airport.
Chris Hagan, director of product supply from Super Break commented: “We’re delighted to announce our new programme of breaks to this stunning part of Northern Iceland.
"Akureyri is a truly magical location for a short break and the unique location, diverse choice of activities available and the local hospitality have all been so popular with our customers.
"We are looking forward to offering more UK customers the chance to experience this trip of a lifetime next winter.”
The short break departs on February 14, 2020 - which is available to book now with just a £49pp deposit.
