Hurtigruten has added a direct departure from Belfast to its programme of flight inclusive packages for winter 2012/13. This is the first time the operator has included a charter flight from Belfast and provides agents in Northern Ireland with a selling opportunity to promote Northern Lights voyages from their regional catchment.
The trip is a six-day ‘Arctic Highlights’ voyage from Tromso to Kirkenes in the far north of Norway and includes a range of winter activities - from snowmobiling and husky dog sledging to a trip to North Cape and a visit to the Kirkenes Snow Hotel.
Prices lead in at £1,115 per person including flights from Belfast Airport to Tromso, three nights' half-board on the ship, two nights in a centrally located Tromso hotel with breakfast, transfers and taxes.
The price is based on a February 24, 2013 departure with two sharing.
