During this day trip from Rovaniemi, you will travel to the Bothnian Sea between Finland and Sweden and board the Icebreaker Polar Explorer. During the tour, you will discover and experience how the icebreaker operates and navigates through the icy waters of the Arctic seas.
The Icebreaker is a unique vessel, it was purposefully rebuilt for withstanding the crushing pressure of the frozen waters and ice sheets. In addition, it has a specifically designed hull that is built to break and destroy ice in its path. It has a long and colorful history behind it as it has been used for things such as an important supply vessel and towing boat.
During the cruise, there will be a one hour stop, during which time you are able to put on some flotation suits and go for a swim in the freezing waters. Due to the nature of your equipment, you don’t have to know how to swim: anyone can do it, including kids 125cm+ if joined by their parents.
