Icebreaker Sampo

The Iceberaker Sampo offers a unique cruise experience on the Gulf of Bothnia 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. The sun may reflect back from the white snow cover, or, as the twilight sets in, it may set down in rays of warm colours of yellow, orange and red, even lilac.

What would a good cruise experience be without shopping – on the Sampo you can shop souvenirs and gifts for friends and loved ones back at home. The Icebreaker shop is the Sampo’s sea-flavored gift-shop. You will find quality products for both adults and children. The selection includes, among others, reindeer skins, local handicrafts, soft toys and postcards.

Come and experience Sampo in the midst of vast open arctic sea-scenery! We highly recommend the snowmobile-icebreaker safari to experience the Arctic Freedom at its best!
