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.
