More winter in the north
The Edelweiss holiday destinations in Norway and Iceland are becoming increasingly popular. The winter there is more intense, whiter and above all colder.

Due to the increasing demand, Edelweiss is significantly expanding its offer: In Norway, Tromsø will be served up to 3x per week and Bergen up to 2x per week. Reykjavik/Keflavik in Iceland will also be served up to 3x per week and Edinburgh in Scotland up to 4x per week.
