ICEBREAKER SAMPO CRUISE

Sampo Icebreaker, the Arctic Heartbreaker: A journey through limitless landscape, floating on frozen waters, a genuine maritime history with arctic athmosphere! Cruises available from December to April.

SnowCastle, The Kingdom of Snow: The magnificent architectural entity of snow and ice consisting of  the SnowHotel, the SnowChapel and the SnowRestaurant. Open yearly from the end of January to the beginning of April.

The mighty Icebreaker Sampo operates on the northern Gulf of Bothnia out of Kemi in Finnish Lapland.

After serving for 30 years in demanding Arctic waters the vessel has been given a new, more fascinating task – to give unforgettable experiences for eager winter adventurers! Capacity on board is

150 persons. Departure from Ajos, the deep port of the town Kemi. Ajos is situated 11 km south from the city center. Boarding time half an hour before the departure. Once on board the Icebreaker, you

will have a presentation of the ship and a guided tour will take you to the massive engine room and the bridge. A delicious meal is served in the ship’s cozy Sampo Arctic Restaurant. Before returning to the

port, the ship will make a one-hour stop to enable you to take a swim in the sea, comfortably dressed in a warm survival suit! At the end of this unique cruise experience, the ship’s Captain presents each client with a certificate.

Time schedule of the cruise varies, please see the times on the time table (page 2).

Day cruise is our day time cruise at 12-16. Lunch is served during the cruise.

Brunch cruise is a morning cruise at 9-13 – great possibility to enjoy the arctic sunrise and delicious brunch on board.

Afternoon cruise at 14-18 is – depending on the month – either a twilight atmosphere on the Gulf of Bothnia (December) or a unique combination of light hours and the “blue moment” on the frozen sea.

Late lunch is served during the cruise.
