Winter Activities

Cruise the frozen sea on an Icebreaker or head out on a cross-country ski tour in the snowy archipelago. Get close to nature on a snowmobile or dog sled tour and watch the northern lights dance across the starry sky.

Polar Explorer – Icebreaker day cruise
Imagine a calm white frozen sea that never storms. The sea is covered by endless solid ice as far as the eye can see. Listen to the sound of crackling ice, when demolished ice blocks rise from the icebreaker hull

You will be taken on a tour all the way down to the engine room and all the way up to the Captain’s bridge. You can relax in the saloon and enjoy a hot drink or go for a walk on the frozen sea. The icebreaker creates a “pool” free from ice in the stern where each visitor may have a swim in the icy water, wearing a wet suit. The captain will present the Cruise and Swim certificate to everyone as a memorable gift.
