Fly direct from London Heathrow to Kiruna – the gateway of Swedish Lapland on our exclusive #iceflight and you can enjoy up to 5½ hours extra time for husky sledding, snowmobiling, ice sculpting and so much more…. just by avoiding a Stockholm stopover!

To celebrate 10 years of our #iceflight, here’s some of our favourite experiences that can be enjoyed by flying direct with us…
