Icebreaker tours Luleå – Swedish Lapland
Activities Luleå – Swedish Lapland
An unique experience while visiting Swedish Lapland is to join a tour on board of a icebreaker operating in the Bothnian Bay. The icebreaker is a unique vessel. Unlike other ships, the icebreaker has a specially designed reinforced hull to withstand the pressure of the ice, an ice-clearing shape to cut a channel through the frozen waters, and the great power to push through sea ice. In the beginning of winter ice is not more than 30-50 cm thick, but by April it could reach up to 2 meter.
During 3 hours you will be a witness of a massive ice breaking power of the vessel, have a guided tour all the way down to the engine rooms and all way up to Captain’s bridge. You can relax in the cozy saloon, enjoying warm juice or go for walk on the frozen sea ice during the stop. The icebreaker makes a pool free of ice and every visitor can take a swim in the dark icy water in flotation survival suit. You can choose between two different icebreakers, different in size, price and location.
Between December and April there will be daily departures, you can book online or call for more information +46(0)70 6666 805
