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

1. Dog sledding

By far the most requested activity for this year and one of the most iconic ways to enjoy the nature of Swedish Lapland in wintertime. Going on a dog sledding tour through Swedish Lapland is an unique experience in many ways. The strength of the dogs and their capability to pull the sled at high speed in the snow covered terrain, the crisp climate and stunning surroundings will give you a thrill never to be  forgotten. If you are lucky you might even spot reindeer or a moose on your trip. You can choose between different tours  from one our to full day or chasing the northern lights in the evening!

2. Snowmobiling

Riding on a snowmobile is a great way to experience the outdoors of Swedish Lapland and they can be ridden by one or two people at a time. This is a fun activity and one of the favourite activities to do in Swedish Lapland. It’s not only a fast and efficient way to get from one place to another but it also allows you to go fast and take in the gorgeous scenery along the way.

3. Snowshoe walking

If skiing or snowboarding is a little fast paced for you, or you just want to try something a bit different, then maybe you should give snowshoeing a go. Our new and modern snowshoes are very light weight and easy to use. This makes walking through snow-covered terrain effortless, opening up huge possibilities for exploring the winter wilderness of Swedish Lapland. If you can walk you can snowshoe – it’s that easy!  

Between December and March there will be daily departures for these activities and many more, fill in our contact form or call for more information +46(0)70 6666 805
