Super Break launch more Icelandic adventures from City of Derry Airport

Super Break launches three further epic Arctic experiences with exclusive flights to Akureyri, North Iceland – a brand new destination previously unreachable direct from UK airports. Following the success of its ‘Incredible Iceland’ breaks last Winter, short-break specialist Super Break has announced an expanded programme of getaways to Northern Iceland from City of Derry Airport, departing January 2019. The new breaks offer holidaymakers from Northern Ireland the opportunity to discover this incredible part of the world and go genuinely off the beaten track with exclusive three-night Arctic experiences. Still the only operator in the UK to fly direct to Northern Iceland, the three new breaks all include the same exclusive regional flights direct to Akureyri and sit alongside the travel brand’s ever-popular Incredible Iceland package, providing customers with a diverse choice of accommodation and activities to suit every taste. The new breaks offer a luxurious option allowing holidaymakers to combine five-star accommodation with mouth-watering cuisine that includes brewery tours, tastings and a visit to a local farm to try fresh dishes for an indulgent escape. Alternatively, holidaymakers can opt for a wilderness escape that will bring them closer to nature through visits to the Myvatn Nature Baths and Sigurgeirs Bird Museum. Or, if customers would simply like to take Northern Iceland at their own pace, Super Break’s ‘Freedom of North Iceland’ self-drive break will be right for them, providing car hire with unlimited mileage. Chris Hagan from Super Break commented: “We’re thrilled to announce our expanded programme of getaways so that more people than ever before can experience the magical destination that is North Iceland. Akureyri is an amazing destination and we take pride in offering the very best bucket list activities for holidaymakers across the UK to experience on this trip of a lifetime.” To book, visit the Super Break website or call 0800 042 0288.
