Up, up and away with Iceland Express

28th April 2011 Print

Flying with Iceland‘s low-fare airline, Iceland Express, get some adrenaline kicks in the Spring with Snowkiter on the adventure of a lifetime.

Iceland is the hottest destination on the snowkiting calendar for the next few weeks as travellers combine snow, speed and breathtaking Icelandic views with partying in downtown Reykjavik and plenty of relaxation in hot tubs.

Snowkiting is one of the only alpine sports where it is possible to travel up slope and across fresh powder as the snowkiter can harness the awesome power of the wind using a kite and snowboard or skis. In fact it’s very similar to kitesurfing and means that snowkiters can carve their own paths, escaping the restrictions of a normal piste run.

The niche sport has been around for many years, but kiting across Iceland’s glaciers is only just starting to attract a wider audience looking for something different to do on holiday.

Iceland Express is offering thrill seekers flights from London Gatwick from just £89 one-way including taxes to Reykjavik. has eight-day packages from £725 per person which includes all meals, six nights cabin accommodation in Husafell, one night in Reykjavik, full time guides and local transport.

Off the snow, travellers can relax in hot tubs at base camp, experience the culture and great shopping in Reyjavik and visit the iconic Blue Lagoon to unwind in the thermal pools.
