Sampo Icebreaker, Kemi
(4.6/5 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.

  • Were family in winter. Fantastic feeling when immersed in icy water far from shore, and still do not know how to swim!

  • Entertainment is very popular in one day could not get due to the influx of people. The bottom line is this: you put on an icebreaker and taken into the open sea (Gulf of Bothnia), then make a small font and put a pointer to the cities of the world. In a font you can swim in both costume and without it

  • 很貴,我們住聖誕老人村, 早上有車在村內接我們出發,數小時車之後,到達kemi上船,船上設備齊全,船外非常冷,但破冰的聲音非常鎮震撼。船停下來,沒想到可以爬在厚厚的浮冰上拍照, 接下來的是分組別的在浮冰上游泳,大家穿上船公司提供的特別連身衣,感覺好像在北極扮龍蝦的人一樣,十分有趣。
