Activities, Nature and special experiences

Join an unforgettable sea, snow and ice adventure on a cruise over the frozen Gulf of Bothnia, one of the few extraordinary places where the sea completely freezes over in the winter.

Witness the arctic sunrise on a morning cruise or experience the elusive blue moment as the sun starts to set in the evening.

Before returning to the port, the ship will make a one-hour stop to enable each visitor to participate in the ice floating in sea, comfortably dressed in survival suits.
The guides and ship crew will provide you detailed information about the ship, after which you can wander around the vessel to get to know all the nooks and crannies all the way from the Captain’s bridge to the engine rooms.

Rovaniemi shuttle bus takes a stop at the Kemi SnowCastle Resort for lunch and a short visit to the legendary SnowCastle built completely out of snow and ice. Transfer from Rovaniemi takes about 2 hours one way.
