Activities

Imagine a white frozen sea, solid ice as far as the eye can see and the sound of majestic steel cutting through the ice as we move forward on the icebreaker ship. With ice from 30 cm to 2 metres in depth this is a truly amazing winter experience! After departing from Rovaniemi in the morning we make the 2-hour drive to the Swedish village of Kalix. Here we enjoy a buffet lunch and have a walk around the delightful village. The time spent on the icebreaker will occur before or after lunch depending on your schedule. During the three hours you have on the ship you have a guided tour of the icebreaker, get to see its impressive engines and hear about the specifics of this glorious ship. There is then a chance to take a dip in the frozen sea, using a survival drysuit to keep you warm. At the end of the cruise you will receive a certificate from the captain as a memorable gift of this truly unique experience. You then embark the bus for the journey back to Rovaniemi.

Please note: No thermal clothing is provided for this tour. It is recommended to have your own warm and weatherproof clothing on you.
