This was one of the best things we did in Finland! The staff and the crew were fantastic. We got to tour the boat, had lunch and then did the ice float. Pardon the pun - but one of the coolest things I've ever done!...More
The Sampo Icereaker is a good experience if you are in Kemi. It is a pretty old ship, 1961 if i am not mistaken.

If I remember right you have to he 140 cm to s size suit. Swimming was fabulous.Also visiting the bridge and the captain Petter Tähtinen was exciting. Decks are really slippery. During the trip you will visit radioroom and walk throug the engineroom. You must notice you have to pre-order your lunch or dinner. Reindeer or salmon soup is included to cruise, but for exsample castles feast and other a la carte meals you have to pay. We loved the cruise. Have a pleasent trip.
