Put a spring in your step by planning next Easter’s getaway.

Spend a Week Away


Enjoy the longer daylight hours and quieter period between winter and summer. Puffins arrive to nest, while Arctic poppies and other wildflowers speckle the plains. It’s the perfect time for a free-spirited self-drive around Iceland’s natural wonders.

Enjoy a Long Weekend

Choose a spot of pampering on a chilled out escape to Swedish Lapland. In late April, snow still dusts the landscape, but the milder, longer days are perfectly suited to kicking back and relaxing in an Arctic spa.

Experience the transition between seasons as Svalbard awakens from its winter hibernation. Spend an active weekend in Longyearbyen, world’s northernmost town. The days lengthen rapidly through April heading towards the perpetual light of the midnight sun over the still snowy landscape.
