Embark on a Unique Arctic Adventure: Icebreaker Polar Explorer Day Trip from Rovaniemi

Discover the unparalleled thrill of navigating the icy waters of the Arctic seas on our day trip from Rovaniemi to the Bothnian Sea between Finland and Sweden. Step aboard the extraordinary Icebreaker Polar Explorer, purposefully rebuilt to withstand the immense pressure of frozen waters and ice sheets.

This unique vessel boasts a specially designed hull that can break and destroy ice, a testament to its fascinating history. Once a crucial supply vessel and towing boat, the Icebreaker Polar Explorer now provides an unforgettable experience of Arctic exploration.

Explore the Inner Workings of the Icebreaker

Onboard, explore seven stations, including the engine room, the front (bow) section, and the ship cafeteria. Feel free to roam all sections of the ship, including the Captain's bridge, gaining insights into its operations. Only areas marked with "Crew Only" signs are off-limits.

A Refreshing Arctic Plunge

Experience the thrill of a one-hour stop during the cruise, where you can don flotation suits and take a daring plunge into the freezing Arctic waters. No swimming skills are required, making it accessible to all, including kids over 125cm if accompanied by their parents.
