Short Break Holidays

Iceland, Lapland and Greenland provide some truly unique and memorable locations for a weekend break or a mid-week getaway. Summer or winter you can be a world away from home within 3 hours. You can even enjoy a long weekend with polar bears in Churchill, Canada.


A city break in Iceland’s capital is a wonderful way to experience this country for the first time or simply as a quick reminder of its many charms. In the winter Reykjavik becomes a city of lights, whilst in the summer benefit from the long days of midnight sun. There are few capital cities in the world where you can indulge in a spot of designer shopping, view spectacular waterfalls, hike in a national park, bathe in the warm mineral-rich waters of a world famous spa, the Blue Lagoon, and dine in a gourmet restaurant all before the sun sets. Our flexible packages are created to suit you, so that you choose where to stay and for how long. We can book excursions before you travel and help you choose from a number of Reykjavik hotels.

A city break in Iceland can also been combined with a short break in East Greenland. Spend 3 or 4 days in this vast and fascinating country that is one of the last frontiers of the modern world. Available between April and October benefit from the long days of the Arctic summer to enjoy a host of optional activities in the great outdoors. You can also fly to West Greenland via Copenhagen.

During the winter, Lapland is the ideal short break destination with its picturesque snow covered forests, frozen lakes and wealth of activities – snowmobiling, dog sledging, skiing and even whale watching. For a short break with a difference, the Icehotel is hard to beat. The ultimate eco-friendly hotel, unusual accommodation combines with exquisite food, glorious surroundings and the chance to see the northern lights.
