Sampo Ice Breaker & Ice Swimming

DURATION: 13:00-17:00 HOURS
This incredible experience includes a guided tour of the ship with its massive engine room, communications room and bridge, ice swimming and a three course meal at the on-board restaurant. In the middle of the largest ice field in Europe, you have the opportunity to jump in the sea and float! You will of course be fitted with a warm survival suit and those who dare will also be presented with a certificate by the ship authorities. An unforgettable experience. Return to Rovaniemi with early evening arrival at your hotel.

Bobby, We had a wonderful time on the Baltic tour and thought I'd check in and write about the experience we had. The logistics of the tour went according to plan and there were only a few small mishaps that came up in those two weeks. We started in Tallinn. The National Park was great, and the gardens were neat to see as well. In Vilnius, we ate amazing food and our guide, Alma, did a great job teaching us the history of Lithuania. I have zero complaints about Nida. That was my favorite destination and I couldn't get over how carefree and wonderful the lifestyle is there. Riga is where we had our only unfortunate run-in with bad weather. We tried to do the walking tour but some people in the group didn't want to be out in the rain, so we agreed to cut it short which meant we didn't get to see all of the places on our itinerary, but I don't think any of us minded. It would have been great had the weather cooperated of course, but you can't always guarantee the forecast will be perfect while on a two week vacation! We all did some souvenir shopping instead and had a lot of fun. Our last day in Riga and Tallinn ended on a high note with the Dome Church and the Old Town Hall. I'd say all in all it was an amazing trip! Thanks again for your help and if we plan on doing a Baltic tour again in the future, I'll let you know. Harrison Miller
