Leicestershire residents could be among the first to have the rare opportunity to go genuinely off the beaten track thanks to brand-new and exclusive Arctic experiences launching this week by Super Break, flying from nearby East Midlands Airport.

East Midlands Airport is among the first airports in the country to fly direct to Akureyri in North Iceland, with flights available exclusively with Super Break. Representing the ultimate one-of-a-kind adventure, the newly chartered flights are part of a very special short break and are predicted to go straight to the top of the UK’s travel bucket list.

But it’s not just the new flights that East Midlands holidaymakers have to look forward to. In Akureyri, Iceland’s lively second city, travellers can visit their first volcano or embark on their first lava walk. They can even go to their first ever beer spa. Yes, a BEER SPA.

A series of must-do experiences await Brits in Akureyri. Discover a brand-new destination before the crowds, and take advantage of the region’s fantastic opportunities to search for the spectacular Northern Lights on a tour included in the price of every break.Northern Lights superbreak

All Super Break trips to Akureyri also include a Lake Myvatn Adventure – Land of Fire and Ice Tour, which includes the chance to see the region’s many magical terrains, the Goddafoss Waterfall, the boiling mud pools of Namafjall and a stop at Vogafjos working farm. There is also the opportunity to visit Myvatn Nature Baths – the ‘Blue Lagoon of the North’ or take part in a Snowmobiling Experience (extra charge applies).
