Crystal Holidays are delighted to offer a new ‘Midnight Sun Discovery Tour’ in Finland and a ‘Greek Islands Discovery Tour’ in their Lakes & Mountains 2008 preview brochure.

Finland offers visitors a totally different experience in summer and winter. After a long, snowy winter, the countryside around Kuusamo in Northern Finland, just 20kms from the Russian border, suddenly becomes drenched in summer light, warmth and fresh greenery. The average temperature is around + 20 degrees Celsius, and the midnight sun casts its light upon this region. The magic of summer reaches its climax with the midsummer night celebrations that lasts throughout the night of 21 June with cocktails, dinner, folk dances from Lapland and toasts to the midnight sun. There is a chance to explore the vast wilderness with either some river rafting, biking or walking around the Small Bear’s Trail. The price for the three day trip is £599 with return flights from Gatwick to Kuusamo, all transfers and two nights full board in the 3 star Hotel Sokos.

Our new Greek Islands Discovery Tour, a cruise and stay combination, offers the experience sailing to the Greek islands followed by a relaxing week on the shores of Lake Garda. The cruise takes in the islands of Santorini, Mykonos and Corfu before stopping in Athens and the ancient walled city of Dubrovnik. At the end of this unforgettable cruise, your transfer to the picturesque town of Sirmione will be waiting to take you to your hotel. Prices are from £1135 for two weeks including return flights from the UK, all transfers, full board on-board the MSC Armonia and half board in the 4 star Hotel du Parc in Sirmione.
