Snow Castle visit
The formidable Sampo, an icebreaker that used to be deployed by the Finnish government, is now used for a unique cruising experience in the Bothnian Gulf. Join us for an experience on the open Arctic waters; where steel and ice meet upon the sea. The drive to Kemi from your hotel will take about 90 minutes. It is here, at Kemi Ajos Harbour, you’ll board the Sampo. You will be guided as the ship cruises down onto the Bothnian Gulf and you will have a chance to float in the water using a floating rescue suit. A lunch of salmon or reindeer soup will also be provided.
When you get back to port, we’ll take you to the Kemi Snowcastle; a snow fort rebuilt differently every year, covering more than 13,000 square meters with towers up to 20 meters in height, and new ice art exhibitions every year. After all this, we will return to Rovaniemi back to your hotel.
