Sampo Icebreaker, Kemi

Inspirock Rating:
4.4/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web
Although Sampo Icebreaker began its career as a tourism vessel in the 1980s, it continues to carry out its practical purpose. While the ship transports you along the coast, it breaks up ice in the water so other transport and trade vessels can pass. The ship's main port is Kemi, where it resides during the summer months, but in winter it is mostly on the water giving tours of the Gulf of Bothnia. The tour includes a guided walkthrough of the ship with the chance to explore the vessel's engineering. You'll have the opportunity to take a dip in the freezing water after your guide gives you a rescue suit that will protect you from the cold. Book tickets ahead of time on the attraction's website or purchase cruise tickets from the home port in Kemi. Tour options include a day, brunch, or afternoon tour, each of which takes a few hours.  Make Sampo Icebreaker a part of your Kemi vacation plans using our Kemi itinerary maker.

  • 我們在三月的第三個星期,參加了這個下午團。破冰的景象和聲音非常鎮震撼。午餐是三文魚湯,十分美味。最深刻的是穿上潛水夜,在浮冰上游泳。是一生一次的寶貴經驗。 
  • The Sampo Icebreaker tour was by far one of the best experiences of my life, I was immediately transformed into a giddy school boy, running this way and that trying to see everything at once. We stood outside until we lost feeling in our hands and feet, then we toured the ship inside – the roaring engine room, all spitting and sputtering and grinding metal on metal. Then we put on our dry suits and went for a swim with the ice blocks.
  • Tremendous experience it of navigate in a breaks ice, arrived to he with motorcycle of snow, what increased it adventure, start of Kemi with cold icy and wind shear and to little less than 100 km of the coast, with-25 ° arrived to the Sampo, the visit was fleeting and however intense and full of emotions; the powerful engines driving the boat on the ice with a thickness of 20 mm of average and thanks to the tonnage ice gives way to cracking in large blocks, slowly, very slowly. Some, the boldest wore the wetsuit to dive a few minutes in the icy waters. We continue the journey and after lunch on the boat we went and returned with the bikes to the hotel in Kemi. Incredible.
