A PROGRAMME of Icelandic getaways has been launched following the success of a holiday operator's Incredible North Iceland breaks.

Super Break is offering a number of flights, including a departure from Durham Tees Valley Airport departing on February next year, which is available to book now with just a £49pp deposit.

The company is the only operator in the UK to fly direct to North Iceland and the new breaks all include exclusive regional flights direct to Akureyri, a four-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.

Ben Houchen, Tees Valley Mayor, said: “I’m thrilled that once again Super Break will be flying to Northern Iceland from our airport. Many local residents remember the days when you could fly to the east-coast of the United Stated and most European countries direct.”

Chris Hagan, director of product supply from Super Break added: “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.”
