Icebreaker Sampo Cruise

What we offer

The Iceberaker Sampo offers a unique cruise experience on the frozen sea right outside the city center of Kemi. The union of the majestic steel, ice and sea is unlike anything else you’ve ever experienced. Sampo has operated since 1961, first as an icebreaker for the Finnish government, and in tourism since 1988.

A cruise on Sampo offers you the most exciting, memorable moments in the Arctic nature; while the huge vessel breaks ice, you may admire the beauty of vast open ice fields all around, and the ever changing sky above. Ice floating during the cruise is an exciting adventure.

Come and experience Sampo in the midst of vast open arctic sea-scenery!
