Super Break has added new Iceland packages to its festive brochure, with Christmas and New Year’s departures.
The operator has secured direct flights to Akureyri in northern Iceland, around 60 miles from the Arctic Circle, with a range of regional departures available.
It has also reintroduced its P&O Ferries festive mini-cruises to Amsterdam, Bruges and Rotterdam.
Super Break’s new festive short breaks brochure will arrive in travel agents from July 16, featuring 245 festive packages, with another 125 online.
Other new products include New Year’s Eve city cruises in London, Mamma Mia packages and opportunities to see in 2019 at Planet Hollywood.
Gary Gillespie, Super Break national sales manager, said: “Our Incredible Iceland programme has gone from strength to strength since we introduced it last winter.
“Our new Christmas and New Year packages offer agents something really unique to sell, that can’t be booked with direct flights from anywhere else in the UK.
“For many customers, this type of magical break will be on their Christmas travel bucket list and with these new trips they can now tick it off.
“Our festive short break programme features everything from UK hotel stays and theatre packages to European Christmas markets and shopping breaks."
Super Break’s Christmas in Incredible Iceland package, departing December 24 direct from Manchester with return flights, leads in at £999pp including four nights’ bed and board at the three-star Hotel Nordurland by Kea Hotels.
Activities and excursions include a tour of volcanic Lake Myvatn, opportunities to see the northern lights, a four-course Christmas Eve gala dinner and traditional Christmas lunch, entertainment and a Santa visit.
Its New Year in Incredible Iceland package, meanwhile, departing December 31 direct from Leeds Bradford with return flights, leads in at £949pp and also includes four nights’ bed and board, the Lake Myvatn and northern lights tours.
Guests will visit the Akureyri New Year’s bonfire and fireworks, enjoy welcome drinks, reception and midnight toast, an evening fjord cruise and live music.
“While agents may not want to start thinking about promoting Christmas in the summer months, they need to, as getting away for a festive break can be a great revenue earner - and packages can sell out months in advance,” Gillespie added.
