Welcome to the Ice Breaker Sampo. The afternoon cruise 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. During the cruise you will have a guided tour on board of the icebreaker, visiting its facilities from the engine room all the way up to the captain’s bridge.
You will be served a delicious soup-lunch in the Restaurant on board the ship during your journey. You may also upgrade the lunch to a 3- course menu (bookings in advance, additional fee 30 €, please find the menu choices below). After lunch you’ll have the chance to go for an exciting experience of swimming in freezing cold waters, dressed in warm impermeable survival suits. This experience is going to be unforgettable! On arrival back to the port, the captain will honor each cruise participant with a Sampo Icebreaker Certificate.
