easyJet Holidays announces new summer holiday ideas

Among the exciting new developments from easyJet Holidays for summer 2012 are city breaks to Reykjavik in Iceland and summer holiday ideas in Kefalonia as well as departures to a selection of destinations from London Southend Airport.

City-breaks with a difference in Reykjavik, Iceland

Reykjavik, Iceland’s beautiful capital city, is the perfect destination for adventurers looking for a completely unique city break. Set against a backdrop of snow-topped mountains, Reykjavik is known for its weekend nightlife, health spas, world-class restaurants and countless museums. It is also famed for its natural wonderland of spouting geysers, gigantic glaciers, blue lagoons and hot springs - as well as benefitting from an impressive 22 hours a day of daylight during summer.

Iceland’s location means the country is also ideal for seeing the Northern Lights from Autumn to Spring, while in Summer the sun sets for just a few minutes, if at all, creating a dramatic setting for your Iceland break.

easyJet Holidays will be offering trips to Reykjavik from London Luton from March 2012 with a choice of three flights a week and a selection of three and four star hotels.

A three night break at the three star Cabin hotel on bed and breakfast basis, departing on 12 April 2012 costs £185 per person.*

Two nights at the four star Thingholt Hotel on bed and breakfast basis costs £197 per person for departures on 17 April 2012.*

Visit the picture-postcard scenery of Kefalonia

Located off the western coast of Greece, Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian Islands and best known for its stunning beaches, picturesque mountain top views and its carved underground lake. It basks in up to 12 hours of sunshine a day and offers the perfect combination of picture postcard harbours, golden sands and historic Roman ruins for a memorable and relaxing holiday.

easyJet Holidays has introduced holidays to Kefalonia with a choice of 3 flights a week from Gatwick and accommodation ranging from small family run apartments up to five star resorts.

A seven night holiday on half-board at the five star Ionian Emerald Resort in Sami departing on 7 July 2012 from Gatwick costs £706 per person.
