Iglu specialises in ski/snowboarding holidays (Igluski), trips to Lapland (Iglu Lapland) and cruises (Iglucruise and Planet Cruise). We are largest independent retailer of ski holidays in the UK and following acquisition of Planet Cruise in June 2013, we are also now the UK’s largest independent cruise agent.
We’ve been trading for 15 years and offer ski deals to over 100 ski resorts in 20 countries from over 60 tour operators. This gives us the absolute best variety of ski holidays anywhere.
We’ve been around for around 37 years, starting out as two separate companies; one providing top-end ski holidays and the other teaching people to sail in Greece. For around two decades we became better and better at putting together activity-based holidays, one company doing fun things in the snow, the other having adventures in the Med.
In 1999, Thomas Cook, who owned both companies at the time, decided that it would make perfect sense for us to join together. That was when the famous orange logo was created, and Neilson Active Holidays as we know it came into existence.
From our base here in Brighton Marina, we create our award-winning beach, sailing and ski holidays and continue to perfect the art of making everyone feel welcome. No matter what your levels of experience or favourite activities are, Neilson Holidays really do let you relax as hard as you like.
In December 2013, Risk Capital Partners backed a management buyout of Neilson Active Holidays Ltd and we are now a wholly independent holiday company, looking forward to continuing to develop holidays we love to share with our guests. And we look forward to welcoming you to the mountains, the water and the beach in the near future.
