Sampo Icebreaker, Kemi

4.5
Must See
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.  Plan to visit Sampo Icebreaker and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Kemi attractions using our Kemi trip planning app .

  • Although icebreakers tickets are not cheap, although most visitors came from the Chinese on board, icebreaker, but Sampdoria still is a once in a lifetime experience! Child bathing suit especially put on rafts, swimming in the Baltic Sea, don't have to worry about cold or worry about drowning, very interesting!

  • Sampo Icebreaker in Kemi is still fully intact. From december to april, can you on tour. It is well worth a visit to give him a closer look.

  • The incredible size of the ice-breaker. Inside you go fall along the bridge. A tour of the ship in different places illuminates the real deal. The smallest and a bit larger were spellbound. It's worth a visit!
