Super Break launches ski packages in Iceland

Super Break has launched new ‘Ski North Iceland’ breaks, available on selected dates in January and February 2018.

Three- and four-night packages are now on sale which include charter flights from a selection of regional airports, accommodation, ski hire and a two-day ski pass to Iceland’s ski resort of Hlioarfjall, situated just outside the town of Akureyri.

Graham Balmforth, the operator’s national sales manager, said: “Skiing in Iceland is pretty unique and perhaps something many customers don’t realise they can do. Our short breaks offer a great opportunity to sample the slopes and perhaps if lucky, even ski under the Northern Lights. I hope that our inclusive packages will appeal to agents as they can earn commission on the whole holiday cost which includes ski hire, lift pass and shuttle service.”

The Hlioarfjall ski area offers a wide selection of runs to choose from, with a gently sloped bowl area ideal for beginners, plus blue and red slopes well-suited for intermediates. For advanced skiers there is the chance to warm up on the piste before heading off to explore the more untouched areas of powder. As well as 15km of cross-country trails, the seven ski lifts give access to more than 20 slopes, complemented by a ski school, hire shop and restaurant. Hlioarfjall has a number of snow making machines installed which extend and improve snow conditions on the slopes, and all of the main runs are floodlit for evening skiing.

Packages cost from £749 per person for three nights and £819 per person for four nights. Each package includes flights with 20kg of hold luggage, return transfers, self-catering accommodation at the Saelehus Apartments, Akureyri, two-day ski pass, standard ski rental and shuttle service.

Dates on which these packages are available include: four nights from Edinburgh on January 15, 2018; three nights on February 2 from East Midlands; four nights on February 5 from Liverpool; Stansted on February 19 for four nights; and from Bournemouth for four nights from February 26.
